New Year

In Slovakia, we have a saying. I am not sure, if it can exactly be translated to English, but it could be like: How on New Year’s day, so the whole year. Meaning that how you spend the first day of the year, signalize how will you be spending the rest of it.

So I decided to write this post, because I would like to blog more next year. I started in 2012 and I must admit, I thougt I will be publishing posts more often, especially tutorials. So I hope, I will do so this year.

My life is work, exams and with it connected studying.I sew very often, but blog about it very little. Some may think, blogging is fast and easy (so did I) and doesn’t take much time. But these people are not writting a craft blog. Those who do, understand. You must make photos, download and upload them, write it all…And that really takes time. So let’s see and fingers crossed.

Today I also finished two baby blankets. Here are the pictures, both are made from scraps.

Baby quilts

Last month or two I had sewing fewer. In december I had after exams and although I have not passed one of them, I like the feeling of relieve, that now, at least for few months until next semester starts, I have a lot of free time and I can do whatever I want. Naturally I started sewing like crazy. Among other things I made two baby quilts.

One with colorful wonky stars for my friend who had a baby boy in autumn. I really like it, it is colorful and so happy. Perhaps I could have put there more of the stars, but I think it is charming abyway.

In the second one, Double X and O design, I used scraps I had from two fat quarters I ordered few months ago. Well, I am not sure, if you can call it scrap, if you have a third of the fabric left, but anyway, here is it:

I like the quilting on this one.

Happy baby quilts

With my exam behind me and few months without the sewing mashine, I am now sewing like crazy. In few days I made these two baby quilts. I had a very colorful, bright and happy fat quarter pack.

The smaller one is 35×40″ (93x120cm) and is made mostly of 5″ squares and cuts from a panel here and there.

And the second one is based on 6″ squares but I used many cuts from the panel, so it is more crazy and I juse sew it line by line without any actual design, I just knew the sice I wanted to end up with. So the final size is 36×47″ (89x102cm)

But enough with writing, let’s go to the sewing mashine!

Do you have some scraps you don’t need?

Has anyone of you, who sew patchwork things ever heard this question? I have. Many times. And I always had to laugh. People obviously don’t have right picture about patchworking. It is about sewing small pieces of fabric together. And what are scraps? Small pieces of fabric. On the internet are so many wonderful pictures of projects made out of fabric scraps. Last Sunday I was playing around with my fabrics, just waiting for some idea to kick in. Many friends around me have small kids now, and I wanted to make a baby blanket for long time. And when I saw the variety of colors,  I thought, let’s just make simple blocks and finally make it. So I did. I finished yesterday and here is the picture. I am just sad that I don’t have a machine with which I could quilt it nicely, but maybe with time.  For now I need to be satisfied with this:
