Friday Night Sew-In: The Results

I did my first official Friday Night Sew-In last night. And I have to say, it didn't feel much different from all my other nights over the last two weeks! THAT'S how much I've been trying to do lately. Fortunately, I checked another big project off my list last night. And I think I'm seeing the light at the end of my to-do list the tunnel.

I recently sold my wonky sun pillow (the second one from the right) in the Quilt Hope In store on Etsy. (Click here for my wonky sun tutorial on Fat Quarterly.) And the buyer asked for three more coordinating pillows! I've never really been commissioned before, beyond doing things for friends and family, so that was kind of fun. I'm not sure I want to do that kind of thing on a regular basis, since I have enough of my own stuff going on, but it felt pretty good to be a "professional" for one project, anyway.

The buyer asked for three more pillows using the same color scheme, but with the addition of a yellow-green. She also wanted to keep it fairly simple, and without quilting, in order to bring the cost down a little. So these are the pillows I ended up creating during last night's sewing session. I think the four of them look adorable together. She didn't mention what type of room she'll be using them in (child's bedroom? sun room?), but I could see them working in a lot of different settings.

I hope she likes them. And I enjoyed the Friday Night Sew-In (even though every night has been a sew-in for me lately). I'm sure I'll be signing up for it again.

Friday Night Sew-In

I've only got about a thousand things that need to get done by the end of March, so I'm signing up for the Friday Night Sew-In on March 18. I'm looking forward to a night of watching basketball and sewing my little hands off. : ) Wish me luck knocking a few things off my list ... and if you'd like to participate, head over to Handmade by Heidi.

Also, look for a big announcement about my quilt-along on Monday! I hope you guys will join me!
