After the almost-year-and-a-half that was Triangle Madness, I feel like I’m making up for it with speedy projects.
Inspired by the Tangerine Tango challenge and some adorable bundles of Lizzy House’s newest line, Outfoxed, I decided to make an orange-and-plum quilt using Jeni’s Plus Quilt tutorial. I cut the squares on Tuesday and the (not small!) quilt top was done by Sunday! Oh, man, that was super satisfying and fast! Now I just need to order a bit more fabric to make the back, and I may have another finished quilt on the books.
And speaking of fast finishes, last night I got it in my head that I needed a new little zippered pouch for my credit cards. A regular wallet just feels too bulky, I like to be able to throw something small in my jacket pocket when I’m dashing into Target with three kids in tow. A quick look at Cara’s tutorial, and about 10 minutes later I had this cute little gray and orange number.
It’s not perfect, but for a quick grab out of the stash and a few minutes at the sewing machine, it’s perfectly cute and functional. Win!
Any quick projects going on in your world, friends?
