do. Good Stitches – April Blocks

For the month of April in the Joy circle of do. Good Stitches, we were asked to make two Star Weaving blocks following this tutorial. This is mainly made out of Half-Square Triangles (HST). I never tried this out before. It was great to do so on two blocks first.

We had to use Kona in Ash for the background color and the other fabrics had to be from the Twirl fabric line by Me and My Sister Designs for Moda. Or fabrics in the same color scheme. Here are my two blocks.

I really like how the ash color make the summery colors pop! This will make yet another lovely quilt for someone in need!

On another matter, it is pretty rainy out here these days. So, last Friday I decided to do a little sewing craft with the kids. Here is what we came up with: a little cat and a owl!

Sewing Craft with the Kids

It was inspired by these on Etsy (which a really cute), but we did take a few shortcuts I would say. Both my boys choose their felt colors and buttons. The cat was for the eldest, and he did the cutting. I did the sewing. They don’t really play with them, but at least it kept us busy for a few hours!

    I love the owl and the cat! My son made a felt bear for his sister years ago. She never played with it either but I kept it. I found it hiding in a box recently and I hung on a wall in my sewing room! I plan on putting it in a shadow box one day.
