Bedside Organizer

So this is a pattern I followed from my new book. This took me about an hour, it was so easy, the binding is what took so long.

but I think it turned out so cute in Georgie's room. She keeps her portable dvd player in it and some remotes. You could even put your ipod in it, books, glasses, water bottle, etc.
I want to make one for myself so my night stand can stay clutter free.

i have a problem..

If there was a rehab for quilters I think I would have to check myself in. I cannot stop sewing! My mother n law gave me a gift card to Barnes and Noble and I found this book... It has 101 sewing patterns in it!! These are a few projects I want to get started on right away...
This is a mobile but i thought the birds would be cute as tree ornaments if you made them out of really cute christmas fabric.
This is a cute little doll house!

Georgie wants me to make this for her...of course I will add my own special embelishments to make it cuter.
And I think this little doggie is so cute. I have never attempted a stuffed animal type thing so I thought this would be a perfect project for me.

This is a quilt I stippled on my own machine, the stippling did not turn out the best, I will be keeping this quilt for myself anyway.

I have realized the sewing is no longer a challenge for me...It's finding the time... that's the tricky part.

So Relieved


I got my quilt finished! By "first quilt finished" I mean, I stippled this myself!! My first time at free motion quilting and it was not that hard at all? this is a christmas gift to my parents. I hope they like it-I know I do!

Much Better

It just didn't fill right with the pinwheels surrounding it. Now this I love, love, love. I cannot stop staring at it. Can't wait to get it quilted!

Pop Garden!

My most favorite pieces of material to work with is By Heather Bailey and it's called Pop Garden. I love the flowers so much I didn't want to cut it up so instead i'm just going to border it with some patchwork designs. Still not finished....

Pop Stars Top is complete!

I love it! I love how the squares came together perfectly! (well nothings perfect). And I love this picture of it with the sun shining and a slight wind passing by. And here it is on my bed. I think I'm going to go a step further and add a border with 2 inch squares around the quilt.

And of course Zuko is with me every step of the way. While I was piecing it together he had to lay right in the middle of it.
This is his favorite place to be :)

Merry and Bright Quilting!



Just finished my very first tabe runner and could not wait to show it off! Thanks to the Homespun Holiday Show N Tell...here it is. I made it from the Merry and Bright Charm pack. (love those charm packs)


This is the beginning of my tree skirt. I made it out of a turnover pack in crazy eights fabric...

Quilted and binded and under the tree! I was able to do some free motion around the border. This was my first time and I did it! This is the back.


And here is the front.




And then this is just a little ornament I made.




Thanks for stopping by... Happy Holidays!
