Quilting A Bargello Table Runner

14 Apr

I started this table runner a few days ago, and didn’t get around to finishing it until last night. (I’ll post some pictures of the finished quilting when I put on the binding.) I decided to go with a non-uniform theme, for no reason, but just because I did not feel like being accurate while cutting it. Yes, sometimes my artistic side shows through brightest in the face if true laziness! I finished the quilting and now I just have to bind it, but then I got distracted by Sunday night TV. Nurse Jackie, Game of Thrones, Drop Dead Diva, and Once Upon A Time. It was a good Sunday for tv watching!

Throw Pillow: Once More With Feeling!

10 Apr

You all know I love them, and here is one I just finished! It is just a simple rail fence block, but I used some fun fabrics! I love how loud and obnoxious it is! I did some stippling in light purple thread, just to tie in some of the purple tones in the fabric. I think the colors might blend a tad bit too well, and some of the definition is lost, but I’ll get over it! It will be on my bed soon enough anyways!

Quilted Throw Pillows!

9 Apr

 

As we all know, I’m just madly in love with throw pillows. I can pump out two of them in an evening. I made this one at work for a class I am teaching. It will be on Wednesday April 16th at the Merrillville Sewing Center. So, if you are in the area, you should definitely come and check it out! Anyways, here is the pillow. Originally I wanted to do a bargello pillow, but it was just not enough working space. I think I’m going to do a bargello table runner next though! Until then, I’m making one more throw pillow, and I’ll post that later! Wish me luck!

Finished My Americana Clutch

7 Apr

I finished the second clutch I had to make for a class. I’m super excited to teach it! Here is the first one I made. I must say, I’ve gotten pretty good at following a pattern. The first clutch was my first attempt at using a pattern, and I must say, it wasn’t half bad. What do you guys think? I still think I might end up adding some decorative buttons!

Stitcher’s Garden: Finished The Second Block

4 Apr

I’m not going to lie: I did not finish the first block. It is still on one of my sewing tables, and I’ve still got to make the border for it, however, I did manage to pound out the second block for everyone to see! Hopefully I’ll finish the first 3 block by next weekend, but no promises. I have a commission quilt that is in the queue, and that gets started this weekend. It is a super cute Mario Twin bed set! However, it’s time for me to start getting ready for work! Hopefully the day flies by so I can get back to sewing! Wish me luck!

Stitcher’s Garden: First Block Almost Done

3 Apr

I didn’t end up doing much sewing last night, but I did manage to get some of the applique done on this. I just love using my 9960 to do applique, there are quite a lot of stitches. I’m still getting used to doing applique, and it will take some work, but I will do it! Again, if you want to take the class on it, you are more than welcome to at the Indiana Sewing Center! It will teach you about all sorts of fun feet for your sewing machine!

Making Of: Stitcher’s Garden

I started work on Stitcher ‘s Garden! It is a gorgeous quilt that I am working on at the Highland Sewing Center, and it is one of the classes we offer, and last night I started work on this. I was too tired to finish it, and today we were too busy for me to do more on it, but I’m really excited to get more work done on it tonight! Wish me luck! Check out the class list for the shop I work at Here! You can do the blocks one month at a time, or faster or slower if you like. You should stop in because I’ll be teaching a few of them!
