I made some progress on the doll quilt, I'm doing a "Wheel of Fortune" mini quilt for my partner. Hopefully she'll like it, it was a challenge to do with 96 little triangles, each triangle has 4 pieces of fabric in it, that's a lot of seams and this little puppy weighs a lot! Here you can see the size difference between unsewn triangles at the bottom and 4 sewn ones at the top. All the seam allowances shrink it by about 25%.
All sewn together- it measures 10.5" x 13.75". I'll add a white border and then bind it with a pink, maybe a scrappy binding.
A close of one of the stars. Getting these little strips to line up correctly was a pain in my butt, some of them I unpicked and resewed 3 times. Grrr!
It's still not perfect, but it's acceptable, I think.
Gravey seems to approve of it! :)
And here is my sketch for the Haiku mug rug swap. It's a bird, bathing in a cup of tea. Pretty whimsical, but I think it's funny and the poetry possibilities are good. :)
Family is in town this week! Too bad it's about 100º here and dry. Lots of stay-inside time, I predict.
