A few zipper pouches

Hi everyone, 

Last week I took a day off work because my stress and anxiety was really bad. 
It happens sometimes. 
There’s no better way for me to deal with this then sewing. I stayed in my pjs all day and made simple zipper pouches from cute fabric. 
These pouches I’m donating them to our quilt show member boutique in June. 

These are the first five pouches I made. 
These are small little pouches. They are perfect for those little trinkets you want to keep together or for a child crayons. I had a bag of remnant leather and vinyl.  I used these to jazz up the pouches a bit.  

I also made two pencil cases with this super cute Canadian moose fabric.  
In all, I have 2 pencil cases and 6 mini zipper pouches. I plan to make a few more pencil cases to donate. 

I hope you join us in June for the Quilts Kingston quilt show June 8-10th, 2018.

A completed UFO!

Hi everyone, 

I have a finished quilt to share. 
My Summer blues quilt is done. 

I made the top in 2011. 
It is not very well pieced, but that’s okay. 
I wanted it done. 
So I did some simple quilting and made a scrappy binding and backing.

I need to wash it now. 
Yes, it’s off my UFO list!!!
So happy!!

I also made this small modern table topper with left over scraps from a current quilt I’m working on.  

That’s another finish, 
Makes me happy!!

A completed table runner!

Hi everyone, 

I have another finish to share. 
I finally finished this blue table runner that I started in October 2017. 
I quilted it yesterday and finished the binding today. 
I love how it turned out. 

I free motion quilted it on my domestic machine. 

This was made from scraps from my stash. 
I picked a dotted fabric for the backing and I really like it.

A finished quilt: Arkansas Crossroads

Hi everyone, 

I finally finished my Arkansas Crossroads quilt. 
I started making the blocks for this quilt in January 2017, as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. 
Every month I made 4 blocks in the monthly colour. 
I made 5 blocks in December for a total of 49 blocks. 
I added a 9 patch border. 
The quilt finished at approximately 96” square. 

I really love how it turned out. 
I had it long arm quilted by Tammy Spencer with an all over swirl design. 
It looks perfect. 

It’s a really big quilt. 

It’s almost too big for a queen. 

I love it though! It really brightens up a room! 

I hope you like it!!
