Two Projects Completed

This weeks sees two projects that I worked on at the ASG sewing retreat finished.  The first item is a Cowl neck top made by a Vogue pattern.This is the first clothing item, besides bras, that I have completed in years.  I actually want to wear this. It is comfortable to wear.  I normally cut something out, have fitting issues, and it has to go stand in the corner until it decides to behave itself.  Sewing on knit again is very different than my normal 100% cotton fabric I use in quilts.  All in all, I am very happy with it and plan to wear it many times.

My second completed item is the Jungle Babies quilt.

I love putting piped binding on a quilt. It adds a pop of color and it makes it easier to bind the quilt.
The back of the quilt is wonderful too.
Here are some close ups of some of the quilt.
This is a picture of the binding before it is sewn on and after it is completed.
It helped me that my daughter in law came over and sewed with me during the Superbowl game.  Guys in the game room and gals in the sewing studio.  Sew much fun!

Looks Wonderful!

Great fit. Where are you finding your knit fabric?
