I have a small wall hanging quilt that needs binding. I'm not too fond of it, but it's my mom's Christmas present, and she picked out the colors.
I am in the middle of quilting a disappearing 9 patch quilt for my MIL, and my machine started squeaking pretty loud... going to have DH check it out when he gets home.
I also need to make at least one doll quilt for a cousin for Christmas, got some super cute flannel for $1.49/yard at JoAnns on black Friday and I can't wait to cut into it.
And 4 crayon rolls, fabric is cut, but nothing is sewn yet.
DH and I are also in the process of designing a tool carry-all for my sewing supplies. I just hope it looks as good irl as it does in my head.

When do y'all do most of your sewing? I try to get most of mine in at naptime, and some in the evenings. I pretty bummed when DS dropped his morning nap.

Great work! I love pieced backs too Smiley Be careful, quilting is quite addictive.

I've been wanting to make a crayon roll for a while, and finally had an excuse in a little girl's birthday party. It's so hard not to buy new fabric for every project, but I made myself use what I had and think it turned out pretty well.

I sewed a strip of the ribbon along the front of the pouch to help distinguish the front of the pouch from the back since they are both the same fabric. It was a little extra work, but came out well.

I've never been very good at measuring, so the slot on the right is too small, but still works, and the slot on the left is too big, it probably should have been 2 slots as there are only 15, and should be 16. And I sewed the ribbon on backwards. I think in the future, I'd like to use some sort of rubber band, maybe like a ponytail holder.

This is the second quilt I've made. My hubby helped me figure out the size and how to get it offset. I made it for my friend's baby who was born in September. She said she liked it so much she couldn't let the baby use it and is using it to decorate the baby's nursery.

I backed it with a bright pink flannel, almost too bright, but it's soft.

My free motion quilting is pretty iffy, so I did stitch in the ditch for this one. I kinda wish I would have done some sort of outline instead.

I blogged about it here : http://takealonghardlook.blogspot.com/2009/08/baby-ds-quilt.html
