Sewing Room Paper Piecing and the Monday Link Up


I always love using Kristy's paper pieced patterns (see here and here.)  She has such creative ideas for patterns and includes such fun details.  So when I saw her new sewing room pattern on her blog, I quickly volunteered to test it for her!


If you follow along with me on Instagram (plumandjune), you might have seen that I redid the bottom right corner AFTER attaching the binding to the front of the mini.  I had inadvertantly used the "wall" fabric instead of the "floor" fabric around the bucket.  As you can probably tell from looking at the seams on any of my quilts, I'm not much of a perfectionist but for some reason that little mistake bothered me.  So I unpicked the binding in that corner and redid the little square.  Of course, I now see that I gave the bucket a floating handle when I reattached it - oh, well!

Now it is your turn - what have you been up to? Link up a sewing/quilting post, visit each other (at the very least, please visit the two people on the list before you), promote the link up with a text link or the button on my sidebar, and when the link tool asks for your name, write the name of your favorite holiday song.
