Sew, Sew, Sew Some More!

Rainy days sure are dreary, but I make the best of them.  All the rain today gave me some good incentive to sit down and get to quilting!  Today I made the quilt sandwhich for the star quilt I complete over the weekend.

I also got an order for an extra wide charm pack bag last weekend.  My goal was definitely to complete something for myself for a change, but I have a hard time keeping focused on me.  So I switched gears and made this very cute charm pack shoulder bag from the "Papillon" line by Moda.


After that I still had plenty of time left in the day so I just kept sewing! I made a set of new curtains for my boss to serve as a divider in our ticket box.  A simple project that didn't take too much time.  Nothing to do but grab another project and sew some more!

I wanted to work on a more fun and colorful project so the next on the list was a baby quilt that was ordered to be completed in July.  These bright primaries and fun transportation these were something more fun for the eye to look at.

Sadly the sewing fun needed to end sometime and unfortunately I didn't get the entire baby boy quilt top completed like I wanted to.  Even  so, it was still a great day at the sewing machine!

Moda Chocolate Bars

I have been working on finishing some quilt tops that have been sitting folded up in my sewing room for far too long.  In the last couple weeks I was able to wrap up these two beautiful wall hangings that I made using Moda Chocolote Bars (2.5" x 5" rectangles).  I love precuts, and I had to try these delectable fabric bites!
I love this nontraditional setting of the half rectangles pieces.  Instead of setting them into diamonds, I set them into this fun kite formation. 
I quilted the hanging with a meander and added small floral details along the meandering path.
I love to see quilts outdoors! Fall is creeping into my backyard though!
I created a low volume pieced backing for this little hanging.

The second wall hanging measures about the same as the first, but keeps the Chocolate Bars whole.  I pieced them into a coin style quilt and used the simple bordering to set these beautiful fabrics off.

Once again I love to see a quilt in the outdoors!  I used both of these piec…

Runners Galore!

Last week I was so furiously sewing table runners that I never had time to blog about them!  I was bound and determined to start focusing on my fall inventory, so I pulled out the stash of charm packs that I had and got to work.  Here's a quick look at the seven sets of Autumn and Christmas themed runners I put together.  I didn't have enough batting on hand to finish them, but I'm just suprised that in two days I got all of these tops done!

Here is each set of tops:

When you stack all the runners together, it sure looks like a lot of work.  Which is good, because it was!  And I have to remind myself that they are done yet...

I think they all turned out very cute.  They should make some very nice items for my fall inventory.  Now, to buy the batting needed for all of these...
