Thursday Sewing Status

DSC_0126Four more Christmas pillowcases completed today. I discovered more holiday fabric in my stash and will cut that up too.

These pillowcases are made with French seams.  It is a quick  and easy pattern.  You will find a free tutorial from Pillowcase Tutorial.

 

 

While attending Quilt Camp in February 2015 I participated in a mystery quilt project.  Ponderosa, written by Beth Karr, is reminiscent of the pine trees that populate the grounds at Camp Gravatt.  I did not like my finished top and took it apart.  I like my “tree” tops but the background wasn’t right.  After making more trees and testing different background fabrics, I found a fabric that worked well.  This UFO has sat for over a year because I could not find enough background fabric.

I was on eBay last week and found the fabric.  It arrived today.  And I am so happy that I can finally finish Ponderosa.

DSC_0127Have you finished a project and taken it apart only to start over?
