I finished my log cabin block for the sewing-circle August quilt block! I think I’m gonna have to redo that one last pink strip cuz for some reason it’s about a 1/4 inch off but otherwise it’s the same size as the other blocks I’ve made.

Hey guys!

I’m sorry for the lack of activity on the blog lately, I’m on a bit of a low at the moment so i have zero motivation for finding stuff to post. You can still tag me in your stuff, submit projects and send messages, i log in most days but that’s about as far as i get.

Again, if you have anything you’d like to see as a group project whether it be a quilt block or general item you can always submit a link or idea to me in a message. If anyone’s completed a block or free month project make sure to tag me in it because i haven’t been scrolling through my dash for very long.

If you have a question that you need answered quickly you can always message me via my own tumblr desiring-the-fall

I’ll be back on track soon enough but i thought I’d let you guys know i might still be MIA for a wee while.

i just scored 3 bar stools for $15.00 and my coworker is going to bring them to me thursday. woooo! they’re going to require some painting and i’m thinking i’ll put some new fabric on them, but that’s for future Keri to worry about.

Future Keri is probably going to hate you but score!

I got this yesterday when I was in Dublin, it was €10. It’s a nifty little tool, I imagine I’ll get a lot of use out of it!

Never seen one of those before.

August - Free month
We haven’t had a free month this year so I’m going to use this month for it, I’m running out of ideas so if you find anything you’d like to see as a group projects feel free to send me a link to it.
I want you guys to enjoy the projects and actually use the things you make, bear in mind that the projects have to be relatively simple as everyone’s skill level is different but if there is something that would be seen as a bigger project we can always do a double month project like the ‘Something you’ll wear’ if there’s enough interest in it.
So anything you make in August counts towards this months project, it can be anything as long as it’s sewing related and i can also stretch to knitting/crochet/cross stitch as well since there are a few of you working on things like that, even if it’s a WIP that wont be finished by the end of the month, it counts.
Make sure you tag me directly in any of your posts for this one with the ‘@ sewing-circle’ function so i see it.

August - Log Cabin

Link

I thought this month we could change it up a bit from HST blocks and i think the Log Cabin is quite fun, It’s also a really good scrap buster because each strip is only 2 inches wide.

What you need to know:

  • Centre square is 3.5x3.5”
  • Strips are 2” wide
  • Seams are 1/4”

This tutorial is photo heavy so you know where everything goes but there are lots of others out there, if you find another one that is slightly different from this layout you can still go ahead and use it as long as it’s the same size as your previous blocks.

If you need any help feel free to send me a message and once you’re done make sure to tag me in your post so i can reblog it.

desiring-the-fall:

Made my nephew a new pump bag for his insulin pump. Gonna make him a couple extra because he starts primary school this month and he’s bound to wreck them fast. I fucked it up a few times but I was just winging it, I don’t think he’ll care.

Need some Velcro though because I motherfucking hate snap fasteners.
