I've been sewing up a storm the past few days. It's been a stressful few days but I guess that seemed to get my craftiness flowing. I started out by making a cute little basket for some of my sewing notions, then one of my online friends (hi Lori!) told me about a sewing contest. I looked over the details and decided I had enough of a charm pack left to make a iPad case to enter.
I started by making 2 inch squares of the Moda charm pack, then decided the fabric looked like it would go perfect with a little country twist, so I finally retired my favorite pair of Chico jeans, made a trip to the thrift store for a fifty sent belt, added a layer of batting and coordinating fabric for the inside and this is my end project.
I then made a trip to Rose of Sharin quilt shop for the beautiful Lovely by Moda fat quarters and came home to start another project. This is my fat quarter basket. No more plastic bags to bring home my pretty fabrics!
While I was there one of the owners told me about an upcoming quilt class. I've always wanted to know how to sew a quilt so I signed up. I'm very excited to make my first quilt. I'll let you know how it turns out.
