Whilst the other Squares were working away on their quilt-y projects (more on that later), I opted to continue my love affair with Cosmo! Luckily for you, I didn't snap a pic of every single step, but here are a few highlights.
The point where it actually looked like a bag instead of a pile of scraps with a tonne of interfacing!
I have to say I'm pretty pleased with myself on this one. As I said in my last post, I've wanted to make this bag for a long time, but when I looked at the instructions, I felt overwhelmed! I can hardly wait to use it. Himself has decreed that it should be the new beach bag... only I should make another one with crabs all over it.... sigh... followed by shaking of the head.
So, back to the Squares!
Q-A was working on a project using another of her Sew Sisters fat quarter bundles. This one started out with strip piecing, as shown in the pic. The strips are then cut down into squares which are sliced on the diagonal and then re-assembled in a scrappy way. I suspect she'll plan that scrappiness. It'll be a plappy quilt?!
Somehow, I didn't get a pick of any of the projects Q-B brought with her (and there were a lot!) She finished a souvenir from her Australian adventure... lots of cool Aboriginal inspired fabrics. I think she might even have decided that it's no longer destined to hang on a wall in her office! And she got to work on a zillion and one placemats!
Q- D continued the madness that is her confetti quilt (which I would actually call her spreadsheet quilt). This quilt is sponsored by MSExcel. Or by Pinterest. Yikes... so much planning. But it will undoubtedly be beautiful. I don't think I'm going to convince Q-D to join an improv group any time soon!
Another lovely day sewing with the Squares... can't think of many better ways to spend a torrential downpour!
And in case all this wasn't enough, my latest Kona bundle arrived. Berry inspiring!
That's raisin, eggplant, crimson, and berry. I don't know what's better - wondering what will come this month or finding out! More about that here.
Keep calm and sew on, my friends!
