Peeks

I've been busy working on Jess's fabrics! For a while, the project had a sudden deadline of today, which really made me get in gear, but I was fearing I wouldn't be able to complete it in time. Thankfully, the need for that deadline changed, so I was off the hook. Whew! So I went from a lot of pressure... back to enjoying sewing again. Deadlines are good in that they spur me into action, but they don't really make for fun sewing.

Here are a couple of progress photos I've posted on Instagram in the last couple of days. This one was after finally completing cutting it out, which is always the worst part, in my opinion. I should've counted how many pieces are in this pile!


I took this next one after fusing interfacing to all these pieces. It sure becomes a bigger job to make a bag (sorry, Kris... it's not a quilt) out of quilting cotton than it is out of home decor weight fabric, having to fuse all that interfacing on to make it substantial enough.


This next photo I took during the cutting process, just for fun.


Yeah, I'm rather proud of that designing daughter of mine. :)
