I cut and chain pieced about 200 pieces for a coin quilt I am making. I'm using a tutorial from Moda bake shop, which actually looks quite easy. I'm still fiddling with the sashing and border fabrics, but the bulk of the work is done, as shown in this pile.
My limiting factor last night was that I really didn't feel like dragging out the ironing board, so I stopped with the chain piecing.
I then moved on to a placemat project. I had cut out the fabric last weekend for 4 placemats. I tried one technique, that did not work the way I wanted it to. Basically I'm trying to use left over fabric and old t-shirts as the inside batting. When you sew woven cotton to knit (like t-shirt material) it stretches and puckers....bummer for me.
So, this is my first Friday Night Sew In. I really like the idea of setting aside time to do something creative. Although I just started sewing, I have a lot of projects that I need to work on.
