WIP Wednesday

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
Sew Fresh Quilts
Hello! I am finally getting started on my Nested Churn Dash as part of Quiltjane's quilt-along. I am doing the king-size version so I doubt I'll get it done within the quilt-along's timeline but we'll see. I'm using the Hampton Hues collection from Connecting Threads. I love their fabric. It is top quality at unbeatable prices. You can check out other nested churn dash blocks on Flickr. I'm just in the cutting phase so I have a long way to go!

On Monday I made a hanging fabric basket to use as a bill holder outside my husband's office. We're bad at organizing our mail when it comes in so bills have a tendency to get "lost." This way they have a designated place and can now get paid on time! Hopefully. :) I used this tutorial to make the basket and it was very easy. I modified it to use hooks instead of a hanging rod because I had hooks on hand. I'm thinking about making one a bit bigger to use as a magazine holder in the bathroom.

Have a sew crafty day!

  1. the hanging basket is a great idea. I need some of those dotted around my house as I have almost no memory!
