Sweet Sixteen

I finished all 16 Starlett blocks and I love each and every one!20170418_204407 (1)

As is, the quilt will finish at 72.5″ square which is not quite large enough to fit a queen size bed and have some drape to it.  I don’t want to add ultra wide borders so I’ll be adding sashing between the blocks and narrower borders.

I auditioned this light purple, which would work, but my customer prefers something in a blue tone.20170417_183953 (2)

An Asian Beauty

There is a rule in my house.  ANYONE who comes over, for whatever reason, MUST visit my sewing room and see the current projects I’m working on.  Period. End of discussion.

So you can imagine how it is for someone who actually lives in my house. I’m constantly calling my middle son in to see what I’m working on.

He is always excited about what I’m working on and gives great feedback.

Anyway, he fell in love w/the Asian fabric I used to make the mug rugs from this post

And he requested I use it to make a Hand Strap Clutch for a special someone.

And not wanting to disappoint, I did it.20170331_205440

Voila!
