October Sewing

My relative silence doesn’t mean I haven’t been sewing… I’m still absorbed in the Ice & Fire books though, lol!

Anyway, some recent sewing endeavors…

Alice Smock
An Alice smock (using this tutorial) for my favorite ginger baby, Ellie.  She’s turning 1 in a few days, but we’re missing her party.  She also got a matching little messenger bag (using this tutorial), and some other cute clothes (purchased).

I’ve also been swapping Echino 10″ squares – this is what round 1 yielded:
echino swap 1echino swap 2
And this is the print I’m sending for round 2:
Echino swap round 2
I’m thinking I’m going to end up with 2 pretty patchwork lap quilts from these swaps.

I also whipped up a little baby quilt top, to have on hand the next time I need one for a gift:
Waiting in the Wings

And I put together my Heather Ross squares (finally) – the top measures 56″ square:
Heather Ross Miscellany Quilt
It’s added to the “needs quilting” list.

And I received all of these blocks (plus the one I made) in the 4×5 bee:
4x5 Bee - Q3 2011 - Hive #1

I made this block for Val for A Notion or Two:
A Notion or Two - October - Val

And my month is November in A Notion or Two, so I made up this sample block:
A Notion or Two - November - Me!
I’m having everyone make the Japanese X/+ blocks using Amy’s tutorial, with a loose color scheme of red/aqua/gray, with gray on white background squares.

And finally, I sent off my pillow to my mystery partner in the Pillow Talk Swap:
PTS6 Pillow Front & Back
Steve said he was disappointed to see this one leave, so I’ll have to make another one for him.  (For more details, click on the photo.)

And finally, I’m working on binding Jason & Christina’s wedding guestbook quilt.  I’ll post a photo once complete (and hopefully with the quilt’s owners).

  • Wow, you’ve been productive! I think the pillow turned out great, and I can’t wait to see your Echino quilt.

  • Joelle

    Wow, no wonder I dont see you anymore. Do you even leave your craft room? 😛

  • Is it weird that I want a smock in exactly the same fabric?!?!?!

  • Wow, Michelle, you’ve been busy. Love all of your stuff, especially that Alice smock. I wish I had joined that Echino swap…such beautiful fabric.

  • Look at you, busy little bee! Impressive. And what are these Fire & Ice books you speak of? I just got introduced to The Hunger Games and am now not so patiently waiting on my library for book two.
