This week I have lots of projects in the works. First up is a huge cushion cover for my new storage bench in our sunroom. My husband and I built this last weekend, and we’ve finally finished all the construction parts of the sunroom, so now it’s on to decorating. I’m planning to do a full post about the sunroom as soon as it’s finished. The short version is that my husband started with this:
And has turned it into this:
He did everything except the tile—I’m so proud of him. Anyway, this is the cushion I’m covering. It’s almost 11 feet long, so there’s quite a long zipper to install. All I have left is to make the piping and then sew it all together.
I’m also working on a Noodlehead Super Tote for myself (the chevron fabric is my curtains, not part or the bag). I’m hoping this tote can turn into a nice summer bag that I can carry as a diaper bag. It’s hard to tell if it will be big enough since it’s not completely constructed yet, but I should know soon. I’m still waiting on an order of zippers from etsy.
My final project is the biggest. I’ve been asked to make a custom quilt like my chevron baby quilt that’s for sale in my etsy shop. This one is going to be a full size bed quilt, though. The chevrons will be in the pale blue and off-white fabrics with the backing in the gray and the binding in the dark teal. I’m just loving these colors together—so calming. It’s for a toddler boy, and I think these fabrics could take him well into adulthood without looking babyish. The gray fabric is Patty Sloniger’s from Les Amis, one of my favorites lately, so I was really excited when my customer chose this.
Anyway, I’m hoping to get the smaller two projects out of the way quickly so I can move ahead to the bed quilt. I quoted her a 4-6 week time frame, so I better get moving!
