Making Progress #1 2019

I linked up an Instagram post with Patty at Elm Street Quilts’ (hmmm… our blogs have the same surname!) One Monthly Goal link-up. This is my progress on making an upscaled version of the centre of the Campfire Quilt (pattern by Suzy Quilts). It’s super quick which is just what I need to start the year off.

These are all the fabrics I’m using so there’s a few more rounds to go just yet.

On the slow sewing front, I’m making some decent progress with my Aerial Grove quilt. This was the only sewing I was doing over Christmas and New Year and being pretty hot at this time of year it was the perfect quiet time project. I’m enjoying the hand sewing a lot more than I thought I would at the beginning and have gotten into a rhythm now. The shapes are very forgiving, being kind of organic and having stretches of straightish edges. Since I’ve been back at work, I’ve been stitching a squircle a day so progress has slowed but I’m fine with that and I’m sure there’ll be a few more hot weekends before summer is over. I’ve sewn 3 strips which puts me well ahead of schedule.

As you may remember our Bee Inspired group has decided to change the way we do things this year and this month we’re making blocks for Emily’s charity quilt that she’s donating to her local chapter of Project Linus. 

We’re making ship blocks (and if you want to lend a hand see this post). These are mine. 

Happy sewing
