I am still waiting for the Bali Bowl pattern to arrive, so in the meantime, I practiced some more thread sketching.
Yesterday, I started out with this blue bird.
I used Tulip fabric markers and Pentel fabric crayons.
This bird is sort of a repeat of my mascot, Joy. I made it as a gift for one of my sisters.
Then, I decided to try the free Valentine mug rug pattern by Cindy, at Gray Barn Desgins.
I had some scraps that worked perfectly for this cute pattern.
All blocks are pieced and ready to quilt.
This was a fun and easy pattern. Thanks!
I also fooled around a bit with improvising a block from scraps. Those floral pieces are pretty tiny, but I like the way they came out. I do not like the big pink in the center, so I will probably be cutting and piecing some more.
Tomorrow is a busy day, so I probably won’t get any sewing time.
The pattern should arrive tomorrow.
