To-Do for the week of Nov 8th-14th:
- Work on some paper-pieced trees to make into coasters. √Done
- Work on a label for my 2022 New Mexico temperature quilt to be printed by Spoonflower. √Done
- Work on some more Sew Tiny Christmas ornaments. √Done
I’m making coasters to go with some Christmas quilts I gifted in the last couple years. The middle square will be made into a Sew Tiny Ornament.
I did mock-up a label for my New Mexico temperature quilt that has 3/8″ squares of all the Kona colors included in my quilt that represent the different temperature ranges and sent a photo to Spoonflower and had them print up an 8″ swatch that I plan to cut down to about 4.5″ square. I was impressed with their turn-around time. I received the swatch below six days after I uploaded the photo and placed my order. With tax it cost me $6.83 for this custom label that I will border on the top and right sides with the left and bottom sides sewn inside my binding. The bordered sides will be hand-stitched down. My only complaint is that I had glued the Kona squares on a piece of white copy paper, but it looks light grey rather than white. But it will work for this project since the backing for the quilt is charcoal minky fabric.
Here are three more Sew Tiny pine trees that still need to borders sewn on them before I make into ornaments.
To-Do for the week of Nov 15th-21st:
- Work on more paper-pieced trees to make into coasters.
- Work on embellishing the simple pine trees I shared in last week’s post to be made in Sew Tiny Ornaments.
- Work on a small Sashiko project.
