A Quilted Bag

Machine quilting is one of my favorite activities because I love the way quilted lines texture the fabric. This quilted bag came in to being for a friend’s birthday gift. It is sturdy and brightly colored. The fabric is a combination of recent acquisitions and old fabrics waiting to be used.

The inside is not quilted. I used the School of Sewing‘s construction, with some personalized touches, such a size and fabrics.

Pincushion Progress

I made a pincushion with some of the scraps left over from the quilt tops I’ve been working on. The fabric is from Andover’s Natural History deisgned by Lizzy House and Robert Kaufman. Lavender is one of my favorite scents, so PlumEasy‘s pincushion filling was a natural fit. The finished size is 5″ x 6 1/2″ x 2″, and it holds a lot of pins! img_7776
