Weekend Sewing


Posted on March 19th, by Amy in work in progress. 10 comments

Hey!  Did you have a good weekend?  Winter returned to our mountains, and we’ve been indoors all weekend.  While a little crazy with four kids inside, I did have a chance to sew – which helps me to cope!

 I received an advance bundle of Mark Cesarik’s next line, Cosmic Burst, and decided that I needed a mini of my own.  I marked and made 160 tiny HST units.  Thankfully Ella was bored enough to help me press most of them!Cosmic Burst HST. Love the color in this collection!  @caraces

Later, Owen helped me layout the units, and a few squares.

Deciding in a layout, with help :)

I worked on sewing them into a top at a couple different points over the weekend, then quickly decided how to quilt it.

I marked the top and got started, but hope to finish quilting today.  It measures 21″ square, each HST unit is 1 1/2″ finished – so adorable!  I’m thinking it will be a throw pillow, we can always use more around here.

Fabrics:

Cosmic Burst + Kona Natural

Cosmic Burst ships mid April, and is full of great color!

More soon ~ Amy

  1. A little weekend sewing therapy is always a good thing, especially when the weather outside is wintery.
    Can’t wait to see the finished project. The colors are fun!
    Have a great day,
    Always, Queenie

  2. Love the color riot in your pillow! So much fun – color cheers me up. I have a pic of my “spring dream” quilt. I’ve only got it half way done but it’s coming along. Snow outside but it’s spring in my heart :) Ok – guess I don’t know how to post a pic – oh well – trust me- it’s cute. ;)
