a WIP, 3 Finishes and a Giveaway Winner

Scrap basket for March Bee Blocks
A basket of scraps, a FINISHED Tweet Tweet Twist quilt and a couple of curtains is about all that I have to show for my week.  The disassembling of my sewing room has but a damper on progress (blogged here).

Thank goodness for our MQG Sew Day this Friday so that I can complete my March bee blocks and not be tardy.   I can't share my After Sewing Summit swap quite yet because it's a secret and it's not quite done!
I managed to sew up some curtains, two sets. Unfortunately I only took pictures of this one. The fabric was kind of slick and really unique. Backing it with a heavier weight cotton took a lot of care and I spent a great deal of time making sure to line up the super sized floral print at the split.  I also used the pinking blade in my rotary which doesn't happen too often.
I wanted them to be full enough to have a nice drape but not distort those great images.
One Yard of Echino Giveaway

  4. I love that you took the time to match up the prints on the curtains. Love the fabric, too. Twisted Tweet is a very unusual design!
