voile {times two}

Hello, happy Sunday to you all.

I have this small stash of AMH voile fabric that I love to pet and admire, but I did not seem to know what to do with it. So, I decided to cut into my lovelies this afternoon and make myself a voile scarf. It's big, and sort of chunky, and oh so very colorful - just the way I like it.

A big Thank you!! goes to my daughter who actually willingly modeled the scarf for me.

I cut all the voile 17.5" wide and decided to go with different lengths of each piece (anywhere from 12" to 24") so the scarf would have a nice patchworky look.

I made two 17.5" x 70" patchwork rectangles, joining all pieces with french seams. I know it was not really necessary as all the seams are hidden inside, I just felt like that might make them more durable.

I then placed both rectangles right sides together, pinned like crazy, and sewed all the way around, leaving about 4" opening for turning. I turned the scarf right side out, pressed, and slip stitched the opening closed. 

I love how quickly this scarf came together, the only problem is it's 90 degrees outside and very humid, so this pretty has to be stored in the back of my closet for a few months. At least I'll be ready when winter comes :)

Once I finished admiring my new colorful scarf, I decided one more small project was totally in order. Ta- daaaa!

Isn't this mason jar pincushion fun? And I can totally start using it right away, no waiting till winter comes. I loosely followed this tutorial to make it. 

Now that I took a little voile detour, I'm ready to get back to my Swoon and Pinkie Pie quilts.

Thanks so much for reading. Svetlana
