Finally I got my sashing for the CW blocks figured out. I really like all those corner stones that other quilters have incorporated into their quilts. There's a round of 1/2" cream sashing followed by 1 1/2" black. The going is slow. Some points had to be cut off because I didn't piece the block well.
I stumbled into a blog tutorial here which stretched one charm pack into a lap sized quilt. I've always wondered if this could be done. I've got 2 more borders to add still and I just got the binding too. I don't know if you have noticed the fabrics for the charm packs are thinner as compared to yardage of the same line. I don't think I've had this issue previously. Frankly sewing with thin fabrics can be quite fiddly and to make things worse some are cut off grain, not happy at all.

The Couture Dress is still in the muslin stage. Long way to go methinks. The rules change when sewing a dress. The waist was too tight and so I dismantled the muslin and reconstructed it again but this time only working on the bodice.

Fabric Shack. I needed to replenish my Kona Natural. Also I have stopped on the Just Takes 2 QAL. The paper piecing got to me eventually ... :( But I still do want to start a bed sized quilt in red & white some time in the future. And maybe a blue and white one too? :) Part of the fun is finding the pattern. I'll surely lean on the traditional blocks. The black print on the top left is for the CW quilt, the Kona Amber Solid is for the BOM on Craftsy.

Binwani's is shifting from Jalan TAR so they were having a good sale. I bought some wool suiting. Looks like some I need to dry clean and some can be hand washed. So those for the dry-cleaners will be jackets, The Starlet Suit Jacket to be exact :) The satin silk were very reasonable too. So I bought some for linings.

1-2-3 Stitch. I had Summer for sometime now. Since this is the Loose Feathers series, I better get them before their gone!
