Sewing Room Friday, 5/17/24

 I got all ten quilts back from Darby. They are all trimmed, but there is so much binding to make.

Welcome to London.
Once I got home from my quilting retreat weekend, I continued to work on the log cabin blocks for Picnic in the Park.
All 42 blocks completed and sewn together. It's been awhile since I made a quilt that was larger than my design wall!
In my efforts to continue my fabric destash, I chose my three favorite orange florals for the backing.

Before the quilting retreat, I made these three vinyl pouches. In retrospect, I wonder why I didn't make one for myself!

I have started a new EPP project. I have the Echinacea print by Anna Maria Horner in all the different colorways and I am making the large-sized Ice Cream Soda blocks by Jodi of Tales of Cloth. I think I'm really going to enjoy this project.
And yesterday I started a scrappy project, strawberry blocks set in an Irish chain. I'm in the process of cutting what seems like thousands of 2.5" squares before I get started on sewing. I don't think it will be much of a stash buster, as I'm trying to only cut a couple of squares from many different fabrics. But I'm sure looking forward to it.

Ten quilts back and lots of binding. That is truly amazing. I really like the log cabin quilt. making the wide backing yourself is a great way to use up some of the stash.

Good luck with all that binding. Will you machine stitch or hand stitch the binding down? I prefer machine these days unless it's a special quilt. It's so much faster. Sometimes I get a quilt back and it sits forever waiting to be bound. Love all the scrappy goodness in those AMH prints. The EPP project will be really fun with all the fussy use of the Echinacea print. I have just a couple of them.

Hello I love those vinyl project bags you made! Do you happen to have the pattern for those? I would love to make them as well. Thank you Tricia

What pattern did you for the first 3 quilts with the AMH fabric? They are beautiful.
