Small projects... big satisfaction

Working on some smaller projects

The last few days I have been working on  some smaller projects... and enjoying every minute of it.

First Project:    February's block for the And Sew On BoM

This is a paper pieced Block of the Month group, by Kristy at  Quiet Play.  She designed the blocks, and  offers the pattern for free during  the month it is the featured pattern. (After that, it is available in her Craftsy shop. ) I love her designs and style .. and  everything she sews!  For more details, hop on over to her blog and her  Flickr group to see other beautiful blocks and projects. 

 Kristy's February block... a Seam Ripper. She  called it, "You Little Ripper." 

This is my "You Little Ripper" block for February:
February's And Sew On  block  -  'You Little Ripper'

Do you want to see my January and February blocks together?

(I made my own ruler)
I can't wait to see the block for March!

Second project: ' Test sew' some patterns for Kristy,  Quiet Play , from  her  new Just My Type collection.   Her numbers and punctuation  pattern set will be in her Craftsy store soon!  The alphabet is available now.

The @ sign

Number 8
Third project:  Gather all the fabrics and hardware together,  to test out a new bag pattern by Samantha, of At Home With Mrs H !  I love the bags that she designs!  I hope to start sewing on it tomorrow...  After she has it available in her Etsy Shop, I can tell you about it in a blog.   

Oh, and I guess I should do a little lots of  cleaning and cooking for the weekend, too!

I'm off to my sewing room!

  1. Loving your paper piecing! Your And Sew on blocks look so great together! Fab colour scheme!

    Thanks so much for testing the numbers and punctuation too - so appreciate your help!

  2. I had to go back and look carefully at your February block, I thought the seam ripper was an actual seam ripper laid on top of the block, I couldn't work out why it was there, what do you need to unpick? Oh, it's part of the block...Silly me lol!

    That's gotta be good though right? So realistic it looks like the real thing?

  3. Great work - you are a paper-piecing princess! I love the fabrics you are using for the notions. That black adds just the right pop! Am in love with the @ sign design, too!

  4. Your Jan. & Feb. blocks are impressive .... I just can't imagine making a seam ripper via paper piecing - you are good!!!! The other two paper piecing blocks 'blow my mind'. Is it obvious that paper piecing is not my forte? Well done!

  5. Love your blocks! I signed up to do a paper piecing BOM too, with Don't Call Me Betsy. I need to get my Jan & Feb blocks done this weekend, along with my Across the Pond item. It will be a busy time in my sewing room! YAY!

  6. I like the fabric you are using. Can't wait to see what it looks like when it is done!!

  7. Your blocks look great together! The flower fabric really stands out!

  8. your Sew On blocks are great! Looking at yours, I realised that I didn't use any of the same fabrics between the first and second block - oops!
