Today I finally finished up a top for my mom.
For fabric, I used super soft Anna Maria Horner Innocent Crush Voile, purchased from Hawthorne Threads.
I love Swedish Tracing paper. Its so nice to not have to cut your original pattern, and its tougher than than pattern tissue paper.
I used bias binding to finish the edges instead of facings. Here is a great tutorial on how to do it from the Collette blog. It took me a few times to get it right. The width of the bias tape I was using was too wide originally, and so I was getting all kinds of awful bunching when I tried to flip it over. I trimmed my tape to 1" wide and then things finally went smoothly.
I can't wait to see my mom in it!
I've been making random granny squares when I can. I've made four and thats about as far as I want to go right now so I am going to make a wall hanging.
My favorite block.
And finally some new favorite fabrics added to the stash.
Now I think I can get started on my Tova.
