Working On This and That

  Not too much sewing going on here, mostly a little of this and that.

The Circle Back quilt binding and label are sewn on and it is ready to be gifted.

I tried out a half swirl flower motif in the 2" border and like how it looks.  

      A member donated a whole lot of her stash to my church quilt group.  It has been stored a long time and we decided it needed washing.  I have done 2 loads and this remains with me to be washed; another has washed several loads, and there is MUCH more waiting at church.  I spent most of the day Wednesday at group sorting and trimming up pieces that were odd sizes.

  I had a little time to sew and played with crumbs to make fabric.  I have made crumb hearts as I learned from Bonnie Hunter.  Recently on P’s blog The Way ISew It she showed a lovely quilt for Pulse survivors made of rainbow hearts. You can see it here.  
Her work inspired me to make some. I found a very helpful chart for making hearts of various sizes on the Cluck-Cluck Sew blog here.

Here are a couple that will finish at 8” with bonus HSTs that will finish at 3”.

Enjoy some time sewing or quilting!
