On the Machine…

This week we have been quilting like crazy! One of my favorites was this darling little baby quilt made by Carol, one of the ladies in our beginning quilt class! It turned out so cute! She used a Wee Play Charm Pack and coordinating fat quarters. Isn’t it darling? p2150210p2150209She backed it with Peas and Carrots, and asked us to machine quilt it with the Counting Sheep pattern by Quiltin’ Bill. It looks amazing! She can make me a quilt anytime!


A Quickie!

I just LOVE the pre-cut fabric. It is so nice to have a slice of each piece of fabric from the entire line. I also LOVE the cute way they are packaged up. Moda wraps them so sweetly with their twill tape…adorable. I now have a growing pile of twill tape at my house! So, in an effort to go green and reuse everything I have been thinking about what to do with this marvelous little bonus gift that we get every time we buy a layer cake or jelly roll. Well, here’s an easy little project for you. A lanyard to hold your scissors. p2150207
I never wore scissors around my neck until I started quilting and now, I don’t know what I would do without them there! I used to lose my scissors all the time! Not so much anymore…So, here’s what you do… Continue reading “A Quickie!”

Cute and easy pin cushion

Hey Bloggers

I was searching the net for cute projects and I found these darling pin cushions. They are so cute. I have always used a magnetic pin holder but now I prefer the big cushion and I guess I will have to tell you why. When we started the shop, my hands were suddenly in the spot light and… I am a nail biter (true confessions), so my daughter had me get my nails done. Well now I can’t pick up a pin unless it is sticking out of something!

SO I love the big pin cushion.

Here is the link for the pincushions on Heather Baily’s site

The pattern is easy and makes a really nice gift.

Enjoy the Journey
