Wednesday has come again and I have some fun things to share from my sewing studio this week. I spent some time last week making 4 reverse applique letter pillow covers for my Sister in Law's birthday- which is tomorrow. I am super excited to see what she thinks of them. They spell out HOOD because she just bought a new vacation home in Hood River OR, and I thought it would be really fun to have these on her new couch. I thought of so many other fun things you could do with these reverse applique letters that I decided to make you all a tutorial- It isn't terribly hard, but if you have never done reverse applique then there are certainly a few tips and tricks that might help out. My Tutorial is Here. I also got up the gumption to try my hand at a paper pieced Circle of Geese block- thanks to Tartankiwi's gorgeous block she made. She and I got to chatting about it and I confessed I was scared to try something so challenging, having never one paper piecing before- she challenged me to try it and promised I could do it. I did try it, an though it wasn't easy it was very gratifying to get that lovely block done- I am very proud of it an think I will turn it into a tiny quilt wall hanging for my studio to remind me to challenge myself to conquer what scares me. Thanks to you Juliet for encouraging me. Here are some pics of my pillow covers and my block- I apologize for the wrinkly pillow covers- I need to iron them before wrapping them up- they have been folded for a few days now and are looking a bit crinkled!
In Progess- My first customers quilt- making lots of progress but not done yet.
