To-Do #1

This is was a quick Seven Treasures Sashiko square to stitch. For now I’m done stitching Sashiko squares with this color scheme. I plan to minimally quilt five of these gray/turquoise squares, bind them, and make them into a set of coasters for a Christmas gift.

And a Squirrel…

I made a mini for my Denver Broncos-loving friend, Erica. I decided to somewhat replicate the shape of a football and made it reversible. I used some of what I learned from Nicholas Ball’s Quilt Finishings to bind this small curved mini that measures 3.75″ at its widest and 6″ long.
