Finishes!

I’ve been pretty darn productive lately!

I finished a pillow I started hand quilting back in December. It was an extra block from my Arkansas Traveler quilt.

I turned one of my Flutterby blocks into a wall hanging for my sis.

I made and gifted this scrappy strings patriotic mini to a dear friend.

I finished a commissioned crib quilt.

I finished this gift quilt for a precious baby girl. It’s a flip/envelope style but it looks like it’s bound!

I machine quilted and hand tied it. If you look closely you can can see the purple floss.

I finished the jellyroll race quilt from my last post.

I love the binding and the backing!

I also finished this cheery little mug rug for a swap. 

Isn’t this Art Gallery fabric on the back divine?!

And…I’ve been doing some secret sewing!

So, now that you’re all caught up on my progress, what have you been stitching on?

Works In Progress Monday

I finished this jellyroll race flimsy a few weeks ago.

I got it basted Saturday evening w/the help of my foxy companion Moe.

And I just took a break from quilting it to type this post.

Another project in progress is called Festive Flutter Tree.

It’s my “traveler”; the project I usually work on at sew days.

I’ve got six more butterflies to go before I can start assembling it. At this rate, I should be able to get this little wall hanging finished by Christmas.Until next time, happy quilting and God Bless.

Now to Him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think according to the power that works in us — to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. – Ephesians‬ ‭3:20-21‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

These Bags Though!

I bought the Boxy Tote pattern and all supplies, not including fabric, probably close to 2yrs ago during a shop hop.

It was even before I owned a Featherweight sewing machine. I bring up the Featherweight because this pattern by Penny Sturges of Quilts Illustrated was designed to carry one.

This is my Viola Davis.

Anyway, I was visiting a friend who makes bags, in addition to tons of other things, on commission. She had just finished a bag for someone and it was made w/the most adorable fabric covered w/quilty notions. It was love at first sight!

Turns out she had some extra she was willing to part with. As soon as she offered my mind went to the Boxy Tote pattern sitting up in my closet and I didn’t hesitate to ask her if she’d make it for me!

And I also remembered how this same wonderful lady let me borrow her pattern for the Caddy Pad Jr. Iron Tote/Pad, at least 2 years ago, so I made a deal with her.

If she’d make me the caddy too,  w/some of that adorable fabric, I’d return her pattern asap. She totally went for it!

Look at all the fancy stitching she did!

It has so many pockets!

I’m totally smitten w/both bags.   I’ll be traveling in style!

And speaking of traveling, if any of you has flown w/a Featherweight I’d like to hear how you did it. I’m thinking/hoping I can just treat it as a carry-on?

Thanks for stopping by!
