|Dave, GDFTCB in action|
I used the same tutorial I used for the other ones, again changing around sizes of everything so I could use some of my fun scraps. I love all the sewing theme fabs in there!!! I think it needs to go to a cool quilting buddy, don't you? OH! And hey, lookie there, I did my squiggly thing again.
I'm also trying to get over my fear of zippers - so I grabbed some solids and came up with this zippy pouch:
I'm getting better, but I'm by no means confident about the whole "zipper" thing.
While I was in the stash of solid strips, I did another fabric basket:
I actually like how the inside looks better than the outside. Odd.
Remember the Fruit Stripe Gum quilt? I spent a couple days quilting it, then taking it all out - on the advice of Dave. He was really on to something - it looked bad. I mean BAD. (His version of the story here.) When he's right, he's right.
I eventually re-quilted the whole thing and got the machine part of the binding process done:
I'm slowly but surely finishing up the hand sewing.
Other than that ... I'm also working on a big stash-busting quilt. Super scrappy. Having much fun with it and will post about it very soon!
As always, thank you for reading!
