This two-piece (front and back) pattern was a cinch to sew. Since I used striped jersey, I wanted to match up the stripes along the side seams, so cutting took a little longer than I expected. I used the dress (below, left) view, without the elasticized waist. Highly recommend this pattern for knits, esp if you want a cheap, easy top. I just love boatnecks, so I think I will wear this summer top into the Winter.
Forty-eight 12"x12" blocks to make a bedspread quilt for one of our guest room twin beds. My mom and sis are coming in a couple of days so I have a deadline. As of this moment, I've finished the quilt top and back and must make the sandwich, machine quilt, and bind it (ugh). This will be my first time machine quilting.
Here are some process photos (click on them for a description of the fabrics):
I wanted to use scraps for this quilt, as well as stash-bust, so I did a combination of 12"x12" plain blocks as well as sewn blocks. (Does that even make sense?) The sewn blocks were kind of impromptu, without planning, I just sort of cut and measured till it reached 12" on each side. It was fun, but time consuming. I started this quilt a month ago. My husband is happy to have the dining room table back.
More to come when it's done. Happy sleeping!
