Will I get back to my machine soon?

13 Jul

Time to get to it and write that list; sadly I had an accident on Saturday and sprained my ankle which means no machine sewing for a while, I can’t even get to my stash to show you the fabrics I plan to use in some of these projects!  I’d post a photo of my ankle but it looks too awful for a Monday morning; swollen and black and blue just about covers it!

Carried over from quarter 2:

1.  I won these gorgeous Winterberry fabrics from Kate and Birdie and am going to use them to make a Christmas quilt.  I’m planning on using the Four Squared quilt pattern from the Moda Bake Shop, adding in Kona Snow as my background fabric.


2.  A pile of scrappy log cabin blocks – I started these after I’d finished the Scrappy Log Cabin quilt back in January just to show a friend how to make them.  I have plenty of scraps that could be put to good use in these blocks.  I now have a pile of 77 9″ blocks.

3.  Carried forward from the first and second quarter these 34 paper pieced shirts are still just waiting for something to happen. All Shirt swap

New plans/WIPs:

4: Fantastic Fussy Cut EPP, pattern by Susan from issue 23 of LPQ:

This was my first fabric pull for the project, I’ve not used all of them and I cut out all the pieces last week.  I’ve actually made lots of progress on this already as I’ve been confined to the sofa since Saturday.

5.  I finished making this paper pieced apple last week; I was planning on making a pile of them to turn in to teacher gifts but that will have to wait until my ankle is better.

Body pillow cover(s) – we have a long pillow that we use on our bed, I think I bought it when pregnant years ago to help me sleep more comfortably.  I made 2 plain white covers for it at the time, they are worn out so need replacing.  The quilt we have on our bed during the winter is this Starburst quilt made using Belle by Amy Butler:Starburst Quilt I’m thinking of using the scraps from the FQ bundle to make one pillow cover.  I know where they are I just can’t get to them right now!  The other quilt we use is the Retro Flowers quilt: Retro Flowers quilt

I have more than enough vintage sheet scraps that I could use to make a stripy cover too, so that’s the plan.

There are probably lots of other things that I could add to this list but my ankle hurts too much to think of any more. (I’ve no idea what’s going on with flickr that’s inserting the photo’s like that but right now I don’t care!)
