it's all good in the sewing department


Seems like having a deadline is working for me. I finished, quilted and bound my epp project. The reveal will be when my class is scheduled :)


I also finishing piecing another top for teaching, which I have now quilted in Aurifil 12wt. (with 50 wt. in the bobbin). I LOVE how this looks! I just have to finish burying all the threads, I use a self threading needle for that job and it makes it so easy.


As a reward for my progress I picked up my green tea and sweet beans and started on this basket block:


It's normal to reward good sewing with more sewing right?!

  1. Oh, how I wish this was pieced and not EPP... give me freezer paper any day, but EPP and I cry like a little girl... and besides you need patience of steel for it. (which I clearly lack)

    Well, all of that to say that I love this piece enough to copy... lovely!

  7. I saw someone else on ig,cant remember who, working on a green tea and beans quilt. I love to hand sew, but do find when I turn under the curves and corners I lose all definition. Probably not nimble enough. Any tips?
