Well, here's the last Beatle bag I made...I have everything to make another but I'll do it sometime soon. The next one is for me so there is no hurry.... This one is for the quilt shop.
This is a bag I made out of placemats. It was fun to make. .
I made this quilt top for the quilt shop. The pattern is called Upstairs/Downstairs and it was in the book, Quilt Boutique by Suzanne McNeill. I used one jelly roll and 2 yards for the borders and red blocks in the middle of the block. This was a quick quilt top to make. The book is an older book but is still available and it has 9 quilts in it that you use jelly rolls for. All the quilts are quick to make. I really enjoyed making this one and plan to make myself one too.
This is a close-up of the block.
Here's a table runner I made and quilted for the shop. This is called Cranberry Chutney Table Runner and has lots of food fabric in it. It was fun and fast to make too.
I made 4 more sewing machine mats for the shop. I don't have to do anymore, I've made a total of 14 of these and that's all they need. These are not hard but they are a little time consuming. They are like little quilts to make. You put them together and have to quilt them. Put the clear plastic on the bottom and bind them too. I do not like sewing with the plastic. I sewed one without my walking foot and it was very hard. I put the walking foot on and it went so much better and quicker. I had forgotten about my walking foot but remembered really quickly when it was so hard to sew...Anyway, I'm through with these for now and I'm ready to work on other things. I'm now working on iron caddies for the shop and they will be a lot easier to work on.
The sewing machine mat is black fabric but it doesn't look black. I laid them out on my love seat and the color looks black on it.
This is a top I just finished for the shop. It is a Christmas panel. The shop is celebrating Christmas in July...
That's all I have for now. More to come later. I hope you are having a great summer and getting some sewing time in. Until next time, happy stitching.
