I did get in some sewing this weekend. I already showed off the two blocks for my new BOM quilt. I think it should be quite a fun quilt with a nice modern edge. I also enjoy surprises so I'm excited to see what February's blocks look like. I did get the rock and roll table runner quilted. I just need to get the binding on and then I'll show it off. I also got started on the zig-zag quilt. I have all 48 blocks cut out and was able to sew together 8 of them. I still have away to go but having most of the cutting complete so really help improve my time.
I also took a huge jump and decided to make a fun retro dress. I have very little dress making under my belt so I think I'll need to brush up on some skills before I start the dress. It should be fun and I have really been wanting to try something like this since I first brought my sewing machine. Blame Project Runway but making a really great tailored dress is something I have been dreaming about making so soon enough I'll do it! It is a craftsy class. What can I say but I'm becoming a Craftsy addict.
This dress also got me into a new to me local fabric store. Really how one so close to me opened quite a few months ago and I knew nothing about it seems crazy. The French Seam is a great little shop. They even had quite a great sale going on so I was able to get the dress fabric and the lining for quite an amazing low price. I might even sign up for a couple of classes. I also went to Jo Ann fabrics for the muslin and a few other things. While there girl 1 asks if I will make her and her sister a dress. Why not I think. I need to brush up on some skills and now is as good a time as any. So I got a simple pattern and let her pick out the fabrics. Overall it has been a great weekend, hope that is true for all of you as well.
