Sewing Day

I have had two good sewing days. The newest Designer BOM from Fat Quarter Shop arrived. The first thing I did was make a terrible mistake in cutting my pieces. Duh! Even though FQS sends very generous cuts, I couldn't make up for this mistake. I had to carefully adjust so that the error was in the seam allowance, not in the finished size. Whew. It worked. Here is the block.
I love these colors. The fabric is from Laundry Baskets. Love Edyta!

The other thing I put together is a scrap pillow using the bonus triangles from the Uncle Sam wallhanging.
I used the tutorial found here, but my HST's weren't exactly the right size. I adjusted and came out with a 14x21" pillow. Now I have to get filling so I can finish it. I have enough HST's for a second pillow.

I am linking up with BOM's Away Monday @ What a Hoot. Link here.

Thanks for stopping by.

Gorgeous. I need to go sew mine. I haven't sewn in days and am so behind.....nothing new about that though.....giggle. Maybe you'll keep me motivated.

Such a pretty traditional set there - love that focus fabric in the center in particular. I really hate it when I make cutting goofs - Yay for being able to squeeze it into working for you!

I'm doing this mystery quilt also, love the colors, so far I've only cut two pieces wrong. You did a great job of hiding the mistake. I was saved by the extra material. Thank god.
