WIP Wednesday: 11.7.12

First off, we made it through Halloween and got to show off Miss C's costume I made (still not sure if that was worth it).  Miss C even made her own paper crown.  They had a great time.  We only hit a few houses and had just the right amount of candy.  We finished off the final pieces after dinner last night.  

Our Modern Quilt Guild held our bi-monthly Sewing Saturday this past weekend.  It's so fun to just get together and sew.  I am getting better at planning my projects to bring and actually got quite a bit done.  I made good progress on my Chicopee quilt.  I am loving this one.  I'm tempted to make it bigger. I think I planned to make it 8 x 9 blocks (8" finished), and I used fat 1/8s.  It still have half my fabric left and just might cut up the rest.  It would be great as a bed quilt.  

While at Market we hit the Ruffle Fabric booth.  These ladies were sooo nice, and they have a great selection of such cute fabric.  We bought several yards of ruffle fabric and various elastics, and I whipped up a fun, quick maxi skirt.  This literally took me about 30 minutes.  This is my kind of clothing sewing.  I've actually made a ruffle skirt before with ruffle fabric from fabric.com.  The quality doesn't even compare.  This fabric is so much nicer.  I'm very happy with the results.

I made a mini quilt with my Honeycomb pattern.  This will be a bonus pattern when it is ready for sale.  There are just a few tweaks to make it smaller.  It finishes at 24" so it could be used as a mini, a pillow or put multiple blocks together for a quilt.

Have a great Wednesday!
