Sewing Room of Progress

I've been pretty good this week about getting up very early to sew, which means I've made quite a bit of progress.

The quilting disaster seems to be over; I'm finished picking the bad stitches out and am back to stippling. There's probably only a 1/2 hour of quilting left before finishing!

I'm using the Moda Bake Shop Dresden Table pattern to make another Christmas gift, this time out of Denyse Schmidt Hope Valley. This one will be more intense than the last because of the half-square triangle border. The squares are cut, and I need to purchase a special ruler to cut the plates as the one I have makes a larger plate than what's called for in the "recipe."

Here is a fat quarter I purchased this weekend at Sew-a-Lot - Alexander Henry Whisper Wing.

Finally, I started a pair of ruffle capris for my daughter, also out of an Alexander Henry fabric, from the Portabello Pixie Ruffle Pants pattern. They are coming together pretty quickly.

Are you having a week of progress in your sewing/knitting/crafting life? Please post pictures to our Flickr group!


  1. Oh I love your capri fabric makes me want to go make some capris. I now have to go check my pattern box and see what I have. Inspiration! Thank you!

  2. Congratulations on #10 podcast. After seeing the pear pincushion, I may make a bowlful of fruit!
