Lately...

Recently, I purchased a new(er) sewing machine. I've been playing with it and have finally figured out how to use the functions I most frequently use. Below are some completed projects I have made.




These little purses are my own design. I have a few more I have made. They are great gifts for friends and family. I've had two ladies purchase them from me as well for gifts.

As always, thanks for looking...

Modern Mini Challenge!

 

Today, I was reading through the blogs I subscribe to and came across Ellison Lane Quilts post regarding a Modern Mini Challenge! AND, I've decided to enter the challenge! How exciting for me! This is such a big leap! My mini quilt is 12x35 and was made primarily out of Moda's Cotton Blossoms charm pack. I had so much fun making it, I made two for myself (GASP!) Please see pictures below!




As you can see I even quilted it with a straight stitch! I am so proud of myself and this creation! Each block has 11 charms in it. As I was making it, I was rather awed by how beautiful it was turning out to be. I kept picture texting my cousin to show her! Anyways, I would totally love to win! After the first one, I just had to make two! Each took me a couple hours. Even so, they were so much fun to make! I also made another version for my cousin, Sonja. See below...




Thanks for looking and wish me luck!
