We interrupt costume sewing...

Category: ,

to bring you a finished item from the summer.


I made this quilt using all but four pieces from two charm packs. The fabrics are Central Park by Kate Spain for Moda. The border fabrics are a couple of things I picked up to go along and the back is a plain yellow I've had in the stash for a few years. I used an inexpensive polyester batting in the middle. The layers are hand stitched together at intermittent intersections with some embroidery floss. The binding is bias and sewn by machine, but finished with a prick stitch (the same stitch that I use on zippers) on the back side.

It's a cheerful little throw, but I think I would really like something a little bigger and with more drape.

On the costume front, I have had to re-assess what I have to accomplish and the time I have to get it done. I have altered my coat pattern pieces, but I am putting cutting and sewing the coat on the back burner. If I get it done in time, great, but if not, so be it.

David has been delegated the tasks of taking Lucy shopping for an appropriate dress to wear under her cape and finding Peter a belt that we can add a holster to for his costume. Nobody really cares if I make the costumes except me. I love doing it, but it does get to be a bit much sometimes.
