Next week I'll show you a current picture! :)
So, this week, I had a couple of goals to accomplish in my sewing room. One was to finish up a gift for my roommate who is hosting all of us for the weekend. In college, my friend studied entomology, and even though she is now retired from her career, she is still fascinated by bugs of all kinds. When I won this fat quarter bundle of Sweet as Honey from Linda at The Road to Oklahoma back in February, I knew it would be perfect to make something for my roommate, the entomologist.
You might remember that I already used some of this fabric to make myself a table topper. When I started that one, I made double the number of HSTs I actually needed, and had a bunch leftover to make another table topper for my friend.
For hers, I made sure I used all of the fabric with honeybees and honeycombs and hives.
I pieced the back out of the larger pieces I had left, bound it in the leftover honeycomb fabric, and added some triangles in the corners in case she wants to hang it on the wall.
I sure hope my friend enjoys this little mini quilt!
I also wanted to make sure I finished up my June Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks, because when I get back it will just about be July. That meant making one more Scrap Jar Star, and I think this is the prettiest one yet! (That happens to me every month - lol!)
With the darker teals, I think the addition of the lime green works really well. My June stars:
And all the stars so far! So pretty together!
Now that I met my goals for the week, I can take my little Janome in for a visit to the spa tomorrow, and pick her up when I get back from my trip. She needs to be ready to get back to work when I get home!
Wishing you all a great rest of the week and a lovely weekend. If I have access to WiFi over the weekend, I'll link up with Angela and Cynthia and all my favorite scrappy quilters!
