This week I've been working on my dotties. It's a project that I started several months ago with the teaching group in our guild - The Hive. I got sidetracked working on my butterfly quilt (which is completed and will be in an upcoming post). So, my dotties got moved to the side. I went to all the Hive dottie classes but just didn't have time to work on it.
It's a great project that combines several sewing techniques - paper piecing, sewing curves, applique. The final project is a quilt but I decided early on that I wanted to make mine into placemats.
I need some placemats and these will be scrappy and fun, filled with every color. I was going to just make 6 but I've changed my mind to 8 so I'm going to need 32 quarter square circle paper pieced bits. So far, I have 20 completed and I find my attention wandering.
Wandering over to my project basket of things I want to get done sooner rather than later. One of the things in there is a Halloween charm pack from Riley Blake called Witch Hazel. I also bought some of the fabric in the line and I'm going to make a long table runner. I've found the pattern I want to use and I can't wait to get started cutting on it.
Ok. Really, I've already started cutting, I just couldn't stand it. So, I guess that makes it another UFO. sigh
Those are my 2 works in progress for this Wednesday. My dotties and my Halloween table runner. My goal for August for A Lovely Year of Finishes is to finish the paper piecing for my dottie circles so that I have 32 quarter circle sections. I'm setting my sites low in the hopes that I will finish my goal and go above and beyond - hey, it could happen!
PS: I actually did finish my Butterfly quilt in time to make the goal last month at ALYOF but I didn't get it blogged or posted which was my fault. But hey, I finished something - YAY!
