Mini Easter finish

One of my sewing buddies was making a curling iron holder on our weekend away. I measured my daughters straightener and cut some squares to match. I quilted them up with the insul bright in between and put the silver utility fabric on the inside after that. Each of my girls get one in their Easter basket. They came out pretty cute!!

I have also been working on finishing up the top of my string quilt and the blocks of a new one.
here is a glimpse of those.

Next week I'm hoping for a bigger finish.

Spring Break!!

This has been a busy week. My only sew day turned into a sick day with the flu! I did get a few small projects done, and fun ones too.
First, a set of travel bags for my little grandson. the fabric has fish and hooks on it. Very boy!
Second, for my princess and Tea parties, I made her a crown to wear and it fits her perfect. She is queen of the flowers AND ladybugs.

Third: My daughter is having a baby shower for a friend tomorrow so I made little pink and purple bags, we made sugar pecans and bagged them up inside these little fabric bags . It's very cute.
I also put together my string quilt, queen size but I will show that when I am done. So I did get some work done. but next week, back to school for the last semester.

Spring break, Spring sewing

I am so excited that I can finally focus a bit more on the home front. Spring break has arrived and there is much to do. One thing to do is post on the blog which has been neglected as of late.
I am trying to get some simple quilts out to use the new machine and figure out how to use my favorite thread, The Bottom Line by Superior threads. I got this little baby quilt done for a baby shower for my daughters friend. The thread is pretty invisible.
I did a different design on the border but as you can see the quilting is hard to see.

I also made her a matching bag and a luggage tag since they live far away from friends and family.

I also made up a baby quilt with some scraps from a bag I bought at Quilt show last November and another lap size with all the remains. I just love the colors. they are happy to me.
I love the big one

I had a long weekend away with my sewing buddies and I made each of them a  luggage tag and a cord keeper. It was fun. We each made a star block to donate to the wounded warrior project and made tiny blankets for the tiny tears project.

I am so blessed, honored and lucky to have great friends who also love to sew and quilt. I am humbled by what each and every one accomplishes, inspired by the creativity that comes from the group and honored to call them friends. Thank you.
This was the first time an all our years together that all 10 got to be there. It was delightful.
