Projects I’m working on

I’m working on several things, strewn over my living room… I cant wait until my sewing corner is finished!

1. Recovering my horrible ironing board. I got this ironing board when I was going to college and the padding is gone and its covered in gunk. So I picked out this material and I’m going to be covering it. Hopefully it will work better for me. Ignore the floor- it needs a good cleaning to shine properly. I’m using this tutorial http://www.vanessachristenson.com/2008/07/tutorialno-sew-cover-for-ironing-board.html

2. I Spy Quilt

I participated in Wendy and Meredith’s I Spy Swap and got the squares back last Saturday. 20 people sent in 20 squares of 10 different fabrics (so 200 squares each). Meredith did a great job sending back 200 individual squares to each person to make into their own I Spy projects. I decided to make mine into two quilts for when my nieces and nephews come over. I’m using this tutorial. I think I’m going to double the size of the quilt, so I’m making 15 4 patch squares in pink, 15 squares in yellow, 15 squares in green and 15 squares in teal for one quilt. I’ll figure the next quilt out after I’ve accomplished one. I’m going to use probably 50 or 60 of the 200 novelty squares to do the I Spy with.

Last night I started working on the squares.

I started with these strips cut out

and then I ended last night with 9 squares of the pink. I promise its hot pink in person.

Just 51 more squares to go!

3. My husband’s cousin’s daughter is turning one in September. She has a cute little shirt that says Miss September on it and a tutu of many colors and asked me to make a hairbow for her to wear. I’m going for this look but on a crochet headband. I just need to get the tulle and we are good to go!

4. A Binder cover to hold all my tutorials on my to do list. I’m using this tutorial on Moda Bake Shop’s blog http://www.modabakeshop.com/2009/08/binder-cover.html.

5. My host of Christmas presents for my parents, grandparents, siblings, nieces, nephews, friends, aunts, cousins…. so many to do and only FOUR MONTHS from yesterday to get it all accomplished!

    You're quilt is coming along nicely! I haven't even decided what to do with my squares yet! Thanks for the link, though, I've been getting some good ideas for I Spy Quilts.
