It's been really hot here the last couple days...
Fortunately, my sewing room is in the basement, which for us is the coolest part of the house, so it's been a good place to spend part of each afternoon. Early in the week, I finished up my hand-pieced 4th of July tabletopper with some hand quilting and scrappy dark blue binding.
It fits perfectly on the little square table where I keep all my stitching supplies. I'm using the little penguin pouch with it for supply storage and even made a tiny new pincushion for the table, too.
I also prepped (and have been sewing) a dark blue scrappy trips block. The others I made previously were mostly lighter blues, so this will be a good addition to the project.
These are also hand-pieced.
Every month I've been adding two chandelier blocks in the RSC color of the month, so I stitched those up this week, too. They're really quick!
Here's the whole group - 14 of them.
These are hard to photograph! The dark blue and purple blocks look black, but I promise they are not! I do they think they will make a pretty *something* - probably a tablerunner.
And one other thing I worked on - the start of my July Table Scraps project - these little string blocks in dark blues and browns. They're 3.5 inches square!
More about these next week!
