#DaddyTimeSewing

Mia has been spending some Daddy Time this weekend, so I got the chance to do some serious sewing.

Friday night I started on a cushion cover, using the pattern by Tula Pink


On Saturday I quilted a quilt - theoretically I quilted straight lines.... I'd basted this quilt with the microstitch gun and again I had a problem with the backing fabric rucking up. When this happenedon the first couple of quilts I quilted having basted this way, I thought it was just because I was spiral quilting (having never done this before) but now it has happened again I will be reviewing my comments on the microstitch gun and in the meantime I have ordered more 505 spray baster.

My living room isn't quite big enough...
I'm going to applique some flowers onto this quilt, so I'll be able to hide some of the worst parts on the front. The back is beyond help. Maybe a large quilt label, or two?

And today I continued piecing hexagons for Mia's buggy quilt.

This week Mia has experienced the "excitement" of being an England football fan, in the run up to the world cup. This photo is for Granny who doesn't think I should dress her in football clothes!!!



Linking up with Sewjo Saturday

Your micro-bus pillow caught my eye. V-Dubs are so fun. Your little girl is adorable in her boyish outfit. We have cheer costumes here in the US for our little girl sports fans. It only works for American Foot Ball and Basketball since they are the only sports with cheer squads. I guess our delicate little "soccer" fans would be sporting something made for the guys too.

Your hexie quilt is going to be beautiful and the colours are perfect for a buggy Quilt. I love that fabric line.
