A Fall(ish) Quilted Throw.........

I pieced this quilt several years ago and finally did the quilting this week. It's not really a fall quilt, more mountain or woods scenes but it reminds me of autumn.









On to the next project......
Enjoy your week!

Fun Project

A friend from the mid-west asked me to create a bag from fabric she had left after making a vest. The fabric was prequilted, paisley on one side, stripe on the other and BEAUTIFUL!



I made the bag last week and mailed it to her, she received the bag and is pleased! I am too!

TGIF.......Carolyn

Paisley Denim bag

I finished this bag last week and mailed it to a friend. She was pleasantly surprised that it was completed so quickly and loves the bag.




Thanks for stopping by!

Productive week......

This large shopping tote (17" wide x 14" tall) has been donated to Camp Eder for their Annual Fall Fest Auction on Oct. 17th. The inside is repurposed denim and the outside fabrics are John Deere prints and homespun plaids/checks. These totes are easy to make but messy with lots of little frayed pieces of thread everywhere!



This Christmas wallhanging is a gift for the family at church who lost their home to fire. It's 35" square.



Here's a closeup of the backing fabric.



These were both "stash buster" projects, I didn't purchase a thing....yippee!!!
Thanks for visiting and have a great week!

A New Tote

I made this tote to use at a conference I recently attended. This bag is large, like brief case size. The circle fabric on the front and back is the same, but appears different colors in the pictures. The fabric is decorator weight and has a sheen to it. It is really hard to photograph and get a true color. The bag is dark brown and teal.

The bag features 2 pockets on the front, one with a magnetic snap closure.

And the back has a full size pocket with magnetic snap closure.

The inside is fully lined with a zippered pocket and 2 large slip pockets.

I love this bag but won't use it often so I'm giving it to a friend....ENJOY!

Thanks for visiting,

Fall sewing........

With the beginning of Fall comes an urge to sew.

I fell in love with this fabric when I saw it, I love the way it turned out.



This one's for me......Carolyn

Autumn Table Runner

Just a simple little "quilt-as-you-go" or "flip and sew" scrappy quilted table runner to celebrate the colors of fall.

This one and the "daisy" mum in the picture found their way to Heather's home.

Thanks for visiting,
