Our mild December turned into frozen January!
Happy Chilly New Year!
So, since I am only going out of my house if we need milk...I am sticking close to the sewing machine! Works for me :)
I have always loved a bow tie block. Simple and sweet.
I've put together the center and started on the borders...
most of the fabrics are from a Flower Sugar bundle I picked up at Quilt Market. I threw in a few new Kokka prints, some gingham, and some text prints for the border.
I decided on two borders. The first is a piano key border and the outer border will be these scrappy flying geese.
Very girly! Luckily, I have three girls so I think one of them will be getting a new quilt!
If you have Amazon Prime or shop on Amazon, you know they are always up-selling. Recommended other items you might be interested in. Well, I am a sucker for recommendations and for quilting/crafting books. So before I knew it I had ordered Zakka Handmades!
What a great little book!
I threw together this cutlery carrier (which I will call a sewing carrier) in no time at all! Truly a fast fun make!
Perfect to sit by the sewing machine filled with spools of thread!
The numbers fabric is a Japanese fabric (which will be available at Sunny Day Supply) and the lining is from the new C+S Cookie Book Collection...we will have this in a different colorway. I can't wait!
It's another bone chilling day here...so you know where to find me. Keeping my sewing machine warm!
