Winter 2010

I just purchased a new machine. It is a Brother CS-770 and it rocks! It's lightweight and have excellent stitch quality. I love it because it is very easy to use and quiet! I am still looking for fabrics to border my quilt top and backing fabrics. I'll post pics as I continue to work on it. I am working on a Valentine's dress, red and burgandy, that is coming along pretty well. It is all cotton so will be perfect for NC spring and summer! I made a wool hat and increased my fabric stash! Thanks mom!

Here are pics of sme progress I made this weekend! I am so excited I got as much donw. Now I just have to find a border, batting and back. I'm striving to make from 100% recycled materials. I got the bulk of the fabric from The Scrap Exchange and some denim from recycled jeans.

Too much summer fun!!!!!

I feel pretty guilty about not sewing in over a month, but this hot NC weather is totally consuming my time with beach trips, back yard barbeques, and trips to the pool. Every evening when I get home from work, I have somewhere to be, there is just not enough time in the day. We are in the process of finding another place so when we are home, we are packing our things, what fun?

Denim Quilt

I made this quilt from old jeans.A coworker gave me an applique machine so I made some Disney and alphabet appliques. It took me nearly 1 year and about 4 pair of jeans to make this quilt. I used an old curtain as the back and since the denim is so heavy, I didn't use any batting. I used blanket binding I purchased from a thrift store. I am very pleased and it makes me feel really good knowing that EJ enjoys it.I am in the process of cutting up jeans now to start another one but this one, I would like to make for my bed, pics to come!
