Do you remember this quilt I finished for my very talented mother-in-law? Here's another quilt top that I helped her finish by quilting and binding.
I kept the quilting simple just be stitching in the ditch around the borders and on both sides of the pink rail fences.
Quilting this was a great chance to practice sewing straight without using rulers. I know I need to practice quilting with rulers, but FMQ'ing a straight line seems like something I should be able to do. Let me tell you, this gal does not make small quilts!! This one is a large full size quilt!
Isn't it a lovely?! She's amazing!!
I also have a quick finish to share. A friend of mine is a landscape designer and needed a pouch to hold some of her key design tools. I used a very special home dec weight fabric that I purchased some years ago during one of my first fabric shopping trips with my son in Chicago.
I sort of designed this bag as my friend had a pretty good idea what size (height, width and depth) bag she needed and I couldn't readily find a pattern to fit. I followed this tutorial to draft a pattern for the perfect size pouch.
She reports that it is working great...stands on it's on, fits all her tools and looks great on her workbench! Hooray!
