How much progress do you think I made?
I spent a good bit of the weekend making X’s and I’m hoping that this week I’ll probably work on making some backs for the two tops that I’ve got finished. Finger’s crossed! (Also, just a note, I’m frothing at the mouth to be able to start some other projects, so that’s fun. 😀 )
Triangle Jellyroll Quilt
This backing is ready, just sitting in line to be basted, etc. Also I don’t know if I want to include some extra triangles on the back somehow. I think it would be a really great way to break the backing up. It’s just a mottled gray solid piece, which I think contrasts really well with this bright top.
I had to take a small break from finishing this up because my backing wasn’t enough to finish the back, so I got more fabric (yay!) to finish it up, so now the back will the a stripe pattern between a kind of gray, tan color that’s in this fabric line and the yellow with daisy print, also in this line. SU-PER-CYYYYUUUUTE!
Cross Stitch Quilt – Progress!!!
I finally sucked it up and took a deep dive into my scraps and started getting through blocks this weekend! I finished all of the yellow X blocks, I need to make 4 yellow \ (half stitch) blocks, so far I’m 47/275ish. I’m going to still need to cut about 30 more green strips on top of what I’ve got cut, but I’ve got plenty to work with. (check out that cow block!)
I’ll continue to post little “live” updates on my instagram (@cutefluffinstitch) and try to post either weekly or biweekly updates here! Feel free to follow along with #windingupwinter with any of your winter sewing goals as well! It doesn’t have to be quilts, it could be a cross stitch you’ve been putting off, a scarf or pair of socks you were making, or a painting! Anything! Together, we can finish our UFOs!
Until next time, happy sewing!
