Patriotic Sewing - American Flag Mini Quilt




I spent some time on Flag Day sewing this cute Stars and Stripes mini quilt using a pattern by Camille Roskelly of Thimbleblossoms.  It seemed appropriate to be sewing with red, white and blue.  I included some of my favorites from Moda and Riley Blake in this mini quilt.

It's Flag Day! Patriotic Pillow in Cathedral Window pattern






I tried a new technique with this pillow top - Easy Cathedral Window.  Check out Missouri Quilt Company's tutorial on youtube.  I made it in a fun patriotic red, white, and blue colorway.  Currently it is listed in my Etsy shop.

Early Christmas sewing

I have been working on a collection of Christmas stockings for my Etsy shop over the past few weeks.  They will be listed soon.  I have been using antique quilt block designs, applique, and both machine and hand quilting.  Here is one of them.

Never too early for Christmas Sewing


I pulled out my stash of favorite Christmas fabric prints by Ann Kelle for Robert Kaufman and made some Christmas drawstring bags for my Etsy shop.  I like to sew Christmas all year long!

Sock Monkey Drawstring Bag





 I finished this Sock Monkey themed drawstring bag over the weekend.  Wouldn't it be cute holding a small boy's special birthday gift?  He could also use it to store his toys and gadgets after the party is over.  I have a couple for sale now in my Etsy shop and they come with a matching personalized gift tag.

Zippered Pouch - Owl in dotted fabrics






Another finish from the weekend - a little (6 inches tall and 9 inches wide) zippered pouch that I appliqued the front with a cute owl and quilted the back.  All fabrics are dotted.  I really like the combination of aqua, brown, orange and green.

Early morning sewing


I started sewing early this morning and finished up a few more quilted dtawstring bags.  I love to sew in the early morning hours before anyone else is up and about.
