I'm a little late for WIP Wednesday, oh well :D
I forgot to post the new $29 kit from Morganson's Stitches & Sew Forth :) It's BEAUTIFUL and I can't wait to cut into it :) Also, they are shipping their kits each month :) Be sure to call them if you are interested :) THIS is their blog. Here is the quilt...
ALSO, I can't believe I forgot to post this, but I WON Emily Herrick's new book Geared for Guys!!!
April at Making Ends Meet. You can read the funny story about how I won on her blog HERE.
I think that is all... WAIT! I taught my first FMQ class last night :) It was super fun! Whoo Hoo!!!
So, now for what I did yesterday sewing-wise amid the dishes and house work!
The quilts for the girls who moved are coming along nicely. I got the tops made and one basted for quilting. As soon as I press "publish" I am off to baste the second one ;D I am toying with the idea of machine stitching the binding on totally. I am not sure and have not decided yet. My top stitching has gotten MUCH better, but I still LOVE to hand bind... Oh the dilemma! Here are the pics of the tops... One basted one not...
WAIT!!! I also made this skirt for my daughter..
Anyhoots, I used THIS as my inspiration, I think :( I can't remember where I got the idea last week, but this website is pretty close. I did not do more than the circumference of her hips. The fabric is VERY stretchy! It is SUPER simple but not super easy. I am not accustom to sewing on knits so there was a lot of unpicking and resewing :p It turned out WAY cute though ;D ...and only $6! I bought the fabric at Hobby Lobby, without a coupon! I'll go get more fabric with a coupon for extra savings.
