Put your foot down is a weekly linky party to share your WIP’s and finishes, and hopefully make new friends along the way.
Welcome, I invite you to stop in every Thursday and linkup your fabric arts.
Thank you to all those who linked up last week, I look forward to seeing what you share today.
Patchwork and Paper Piecing
This week I have 3 projects in the works, maybe a first for me. Hanging from the curtain rod in front of my design wall is the Tree of Life quilt with a flying geese border that’s waiting for an additional border. The borders are sewn on now but the quilt is clipped out of the way for the work behind it so there is no photo yet.
All of the fabrics in this quilt are from the Island Batik Foundations Collection. This collection is available throughout the year and consists of blenders, neutrals, solids and basics.
The tree and background are all paper pieced, the flying geese are patchwork cut using the 6″ flying geese die from AccuQuilt.
Patchwork and Applique
Next I have the commissioned quilt that I am working on. It will have applique dinosaurs cut from the AccuQuilt dinosaur die. A few more blocks to make then fuse/sew the dino’s on. These fabrics are also from the Island Batik Foundations Collection.
The patchwork pieces were cut using various dies from AccuQuilt.
Patchwork, Applique and Paper Piecing
Next the Island Batik “It’s Never Too Early” July Challenge is currently loaded on the quilt frame. Another Christmas in July project. I’d hoped to have it completed for today but that isn’t going to happen.
Funny, since becoming an Island Batik Ambassador I rarely use or purchase anything else. New self set deadline is Monday.
Meet Loki, my new 8 week old sewing companion. Don’t let the photo fool you on his size as he is only 22 ounces, less than a pound and a half. I’ve seen rats bigger than he is.
Ann-Marie of Stories From The Sewing Room shared her newly finished donation quilt.
I love flying geese in every shape and color. Love these scrappy geese from Viridian’s Blog post.
