A time to sew

I’ve been working on finishing up a stack of WIP’s I’ve had for a while…

It’s been fun to work on this quilt that I pieced together sometime last year…

I used Bonnie & Camille fabrics that I had saved.  They’re so pretty and colorful!

This is a very easy pattern, and it comes together quickly!

The pattern I followed is called “Katie’s Quilt, by MissiouriQuiltCo.com

I’m so glad I chose a different background than the white I always use.  It’s much more colorful and fun.  Instead, I made the stars white, and the background a pretty shade of turquoise.  I also love the patchwork look in the squares.

I finished to quilt top and now comes the hand quilting and then the binding.
If you have any suggestions for the hand quilting pattern, let me know.

It was such a quick and fun pattern to follow that I might just make one to keep.  This one will probably be a gift.

Have a blessed Sunday!

Happy sewing,

I love making things for my grand kids!  The tiny pieces and fabrics are so much fun to work with!

My daughter gave me this magazine about two years ago.  I’ve looked through it countless times, dreaming planning which projects I was going to make, with what fabric, and for whom.


.

You see the project pictured on the top right?  That’s the one I had picked out for one of my grand kids birthday.  I just thought it looked so cute!

If you’d like to get the pattern, you can find it by clicking here.  I love the website for this magazine!  It has so many ideas, patterns, and helpful tips!  The designer of this project is Jo Carter, and her website is http://www.twoowls.typepad.co.uk.  

.

The instructions are easy to understand and follow.  I must confess that as I pieced the bed, I wondered how this “rectangle” would become a bed, but as I went along, following the pattern, it all made sense and worked perfectly.

I love patchwork quilts, don’t you?

For the mice, I decided to use print instead of solid fabric.  


.

.

It was fun sewing on the tails and working on their faces.  As you can tell, I decided to use a fine-tip permanent marker (instead of embroidery) on the faces.  I was short on time… I had to get this in the mail in time for a birthday surprise!

If you’ve got any projects or magazine clippings filed under “someday”. . .  Choose one and get started!

It’ll be fun!

Happy sewing and a great weekend to you!
