I had thought that I would come back from the class and maybe finish piecing it. But I got home, browsed Pinterest for a bit, and started a brand new, totally unplanned project.
These are inside addition blocks I found on Debbie's blog. I made mine slightly smaller and grabbed fabrics that were already lying on my cutting mat. The plan was a cushion cover. Except I totally failed when it came to the maths: twenty 5" blocks don't make a square cushion... so I cut too much fabric. I could scrap four blocks. Or I could cut more and make a baby quilt.... I'm thinking baby quilt.
I carried on with these blocks on Sunday. I should have been finishing my Cotton and Steel Mini Swap quilt. And then I went on Instagram and found one of those "I-must-sew-this-now" projects. So I did.
These little fabric trays are a tutorial from @aspoonfulsugar and they took me just 25 minutes each to make. I know I'm thinking ahead, but a lot of people might get one of these for Christmas! You could fill them with chocolates, or hair bobbles, or small sewing notions like I have here. The orange/peach one was my first and will hold my stud earrings, the teal one will be heading off in a swap package soon.
I can confirm that I have also now finished my cotton and steel mini quilt - I'll wait till my partner receives it for the full reveal!
Linking up with WIP Wednesday - I nearly forgot!
