This week I've mostly been plugging away at my Octagonal Orb blocks. I still don't have a background fabric chosen so I've only been working on the coloured sections. So far I have 5 blocks worth pieced together. These don't look very octagonal or orb-like yet, but to give you an idea....
Yesterday I received the last of my bee blocks in the mail, so I now have 12 granny square blocks to work with. I had sent out a variety of scrappy fabrics and a natural solid and the resulting blocks are pretty fun I think! Here's a look at a few of them, still untrimmed:
And finally for this week, a W.I.P. that is existing only in my mind so far - this duffel bag pattern. I was lucky to win this during Sew Mama Sew giveaway day, and I'd love to give it a try. The pattern is put out by Simplicity and is a Studio Cherie design. She has TONS of great sewing patterns available in her Etsy shop. Be sure to check them out.
Have a good week all. I'm looking forward to seeing what the rest of you have been up to!
