OMG - 03

I didn't want to choose new goal unless I finish the previous one. So here we go. My February goal is finished. Just not in time.

I kept the quilting pretty simple and the back side is plain with hidden zipper.

The strawberry block is from the Honey Pot Bee series and you can find the tut here.

My cushion ended up around 12" almost square.

I didn't want my strawberry all ripe so I used a bit of white squares to give it a bit of dimension.

Here is my favorite detail.

And what's my OMG goal for March? To use up those charm squares. I have new cutlery pouch on mind. So we'll see.

Little progress

I tried to find my sewjo in wine. It worked a little.

I finally finished quilting the plus cushion cover. The lines are especially visible on back side.

February went pretty fast. There are days when I'm not reading blogs or emails. My apology to those still waiting for reply. I mostly feel like doing nothing and I just let the days go by ..

I bought new ironing board cover. I love the design of tumbling blocks!

You probably spotted some progress on another cushion cover.

Just when I started sewing again I ran out of thread and I didn't have any spare full bobins ready. Is it a good sign? :)

OMG - 02

My goal for February is to find my sewjo again. I kind of lost it.
Prior my lost my latest project was this block. The Honey Pot Bee January block and you can find the tut here. I only sewed up the rows ...
To finish this block and turn it into cushion cover is my OMG goal for this month. Wish me luck!

OMG - 01 finished

Yippee! I have finished both ideas for the challenge which means I have completed my OMG goal!

I linked up the origami star inspired mini in time and you can read all about here.

I also wanted to try the circles. I quilted them on machine but I was not happy with the result so I have added a bit of hand stitching with pearl cotton.

That made the design more visible. The idea here is mixing primary colors. You know yellow+red=orange. I hope you can spot it in there :)

The bottom is quilted and no seam. It's my usual pouch made out of one piece. (8x12")

I didn't have long zipper in particular color on hand so no zipper loop this time around.

Obligatory fence pic :) Yeah the winter is not leaving us and still going strong.
If you inspired by the theme 8 is great you can still link up with the challenge here.

Pencil case

Here is another pouch, bag or case. Whatever your preference to call it is. It started while making something else. Some of you might remember that rainbow gene purse.

My preferred kind is made out of one piece and longer zipper. The size of this one is 7x11".

It is a little longer than necessary but my girl said she'll put pencil sharpener and eraser rubber in there as well. That means it is just right.

No seam at the bottom.

Don't you love these pencils? Yeah, they make gold and silver these days.

Loop for fun and easy carrying around.
Linking up with finish it up Friday and more.
