some sewing



I have been able to catch a few minutes to do some sewing. Feels good, and I am enjoying it. I have layered and cut backings for 3 small things . I have one completely finished.My Pumpkins. The designs are from Bird Brain Designs  Then today I came across a lemon table runner I had started a few years back so I layered it and quilted it out and am now applying the binding. Turned out pretty nice. I will post the photos of them all in a few I first have to take them LOL. I have the twister table runner ready to layer as well. I like it too. There is plenty for me to sew on and yet I have a hankering to start another new project. One for Christmas I would really like to get it made and have it hanging on my entry way wall. If I do you will be the first to see it. hehe I have purchased the whole line by Kate Spain called Flurry.  I plan to make the gift box quilt  that is a free pattern on  United Notions web site.
It is such a happy quilt to me. Stay in touch to see my hand works soon.

Love your projects Patty Pat! I saw the same quilt at the Hershey Quilt show and want to make one but in a smaller scale! I'm thinking of making a paper piecing pattern for my small pieces of xmas fabric left. I do love the Flurry line too! Keep us posted!
Hugs, Mickie

Patty!

Nice work ... such whimsical pumpkins!!!

So pleased you brought "Flurry" into your creative life and the giftbox quilt that I designed too for Moda.

You've got some terrific fabric/quilting stores in your area.

I'm particularly fond of the Elys' place, J. Ellen's House of Fabric -- which celebrates its FIRST ANNIVERSARY TOMORROW!! :) http://www.jellenshouseoffabric.com/

Enjoy!
