Under My Needle

I can't work on just one project at a time! Anyone else out there like that? I have to have several things going at once. I am sure it is not the most productive way to use my sewing time but that is how I enjoy doing things. So... here is a peak at a few of the projects under my needle the past few weeks.

First up is Bonnie Hunter's 2015 Mystery Quilt. My friend Nan asked if I would be interested in sewing along with her on this project. I jumped at the chance. It has been great to keep in contact with her while working on the same project. It has also been wonderful motivation to be sewing along with her. I am waaaayyyyy behind on this project. I just finished clue #3, and clue #6 was introduced late last night. I also felt overwhelmed keeping up so decided to make 1/2 the amount blocks. It has made this quilt-of-many-pieces seem manageable.

 Next up is a small project I finished yesterday. This is a small zipper pouch made from This and That Patterns and Moda's Gooseberry fabric. I love how it turned out and it went together pretty quick! I am going to be doing more travel this year with my new job and plan to use this to hold my various electronic chargers.

After starting Bonnie Hunter's Mystery I have become obsessed with her patterns. This one is called Wild & Goosey. The blocks finish 3 inches and are paper-pieced. I love how this is using up even my tiniest scraps that I hate to throw away. This will probably end up being a table runner or small wall-hanging.

That is all for now... I am off to do a little more sewing and some not-fun but necessary things like laundry. What are you working on? I would love to know!
