I've been trying to stay off my feet the past few days, in an effort to keep baby-girl-to-be from coming too early. I don't know why it never occurred to me before that my ironing board could be lowered down enough to allow me to press seams while seated, but it took being 37 weeks pregnant for me to come to this realization. Behold, my fancy new sewing set up:
#31 - Evening Star. I love this Joel Dewberry print from Notting Hill.
#17 - Cats & Mice. This block was really tricky because of all the tiny little pieces. I tried so hard to maintain accurate seam allowances and starched my pieces to avoid stretching but, even so, the block came out wonky and I lost corners. This is a block that I should have paper pieced. I may redo it, although my Instagram friends pointed out that in the grand scheme of the quilt, the cut off corners won't be noticeable.
Oh! Yes, I drank the washi tape kool-aid! Isn't it grand?! There was a fabulous selection at The Paper Place on Queen Street West here in Toronto and I had a really tough time narrowing my choices. I ended up buying way more than necessary. Oops!
