I've been working on dribs and drabs of things here and there, not feeling too productive this week. The top and back are finished on my sewing case. I now need to layer with batting and backing to do the hand quilting. It's such a small piece I figured it won't take much time to hand quilt and it'll make it that much more special. At our next months stitching meeting we'll be working on the gusset and zippers. Then we have a handle and some inside work of pockets, scissor holder and button and ties for holding threads. After that is all done then the whole thing can be assembled into a sewing case. It's not big but will be a nice size for holding all the things a girl needs to take along for hand sewing.
Something else I'm doing is hand sewing the binding on my queen size buggy barn star quilt. I didn't have a big enough piece of fabric to cut the binding all the same so I went scrappy there too. The whole quilt is scrappy so why not the binding. I'll show the completed quilt when I get the binding finished. I've also been cutting strips to make more 3" 9-patch blocks, I hope to have these done and mailed this week. I really want to have that quilt done too.
Oh ya...don't forget to stop by and see who's won the messy award on Nicole's blog. They are pretty bad and have definitely earned the award.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you are having a great week and have time to sew.
