I finished up some crumb hearts earlier this week. Two for purple month, and two yellows to catch up so that two hearts are made for each of the RSC colors.
Here are all the hearts I've made with their bonus HSTs, too.
And then I had to play some more on the design wall. What about crumb hearts and wonky stars?
This could be a fun combination!
I had a little "Drop Everything and Make It" moment this week, and decided to make a tiny pincushion out of this Crabapple Hill Studios design. It measures about 3.75 x 3.25. I wanted a little something positive to give to a friend who's going through a bit of a tough time right now.
How about that tiny purple flower?!
A little bit of this green made a great backing for the pincushion. What kind of flowers do you think those are? I think they look like water lilies!

So that was the extent of my sewing this week! But, one more thing - I'm looking for some advice. I was poking around in a closet a few days ago and found this pretty purple fleece blanket that was a gift from a 5th grader quite a few years ago.
I think this measures about 48 x 60.
I'm wondering about using this as the backing for a quilt. Would you use batting with it? (It's pretty heavy weight.) What about basting - pin or spray baste? How would you quilt it? If you have used fleece as a backing fabric, please tell me how it worked out for you! And thanks so much!
