The Pfaff is probably feeling a little neglected this week…not seeing much action. Last week I sewed nearly everyday trying to finish up the dress, Meow the kitty doll, and Ollie the Owl. I did manage to get this block whipped up Sunday night for Tine, for my Sew Connected 2 group:
The block is called Sky Rocket, from Ruby Short McKim’s 101 Patchwork Patterns books from 1931. I have a 1962 reprint, which you can still get on Amazon if you follow my link above. I changed the block design ever so slightly, inceasing the star points and dividing the “rockets” in half to give them a 3-D look. I really love the solids that Tine chose, and I’m going to have a hard time sending this off to Copenhagen today!
May was a lucky month for me…I won a Wristlet Three Ways pattern from Elizabeth’s Sew Mama Sew Giveaway at Oh Fransson!… The photo above is borrowed from her blog. It’s a gorgeous wristlet bag, is it not?! This is a great pattern, visit her shop to purchase one for yourself.
Then, the same week, I won 6 Fat Quarters and a pattern from Kathy’s Pink Chalk Studio Spring Market 2009 Giveaway!
They were delivered yesterday and I couldn’t be more pleased! Six Fat Quarters from Valori Wells’ new Del Hi collection for Freespirit. You can view the entire line and download the free pattern here.
I love that aqua colored piece above…and the one to the right looks like redwork embroidery, trust me, the photo does not do it justice!
I think I might be making an Oh Fransson Wristlet out of these lovelies…
Who doesn’t love free fabric, huh?! Happy sewing…
I gotta ask – what are YOU doing up at 6:12 AM?! I really like what you did with this block – the solids work well.
Wow, how lucky that you won that wrislet pattern AND those fabrics – congrats! I really love that block – amazing fabric colors!
great block for tine…love how those solids work together! you are on quite a winning streak! congrats!! (and look at those pretty selvages!!)
