Here is my first scrappy sprout.  I first saw Tracey's Scrappy Sprouts quilt on Flickr.  She shares her friend's heartbreaking news and the inspiration behind her quilt on her blog

First Pillow Cover Ever

I've decided that 2013 will be all about making items for my home.  This pillow cover has many firsts for me.

My very first pillow cover.  Yes, I've been sewing for many years and never made a pillow.  Crazy! 

My first attempt at low volume.  Not sure if I was successful or not, but I'm calling it low volume. Just go with it.  Plus I love all those text prints from my first official swap.

First hidden zipper. Although, not sure what projects would call for a hidden zipper other than a pillow cover. 

Can I just say it was a bit of a pain trying to line up those dots. 

First attempt at pebble quilting.  Okay, yes, they look more like loops, but if you squint really hard you can see a pebble or two.

Yellow Vintage Sheets Zigzag Quilt

Yay!  Another UFO bites the dust.  Yes, my yellow vintage sheets zigzag quilt is complete.  I finished the binding last night and it's in the wash as I write this
post.  Happy dance!

Denyse Schmidt County Fair Patchwork Grocery Bag

I've had the Denyse Schmidt County Fair Patchwork Promenade fabric in my stash for a long, long time.  When I saw this grocery bag pattern by Michelle Patterns I knew it would be the perfect pattern to use some of the fabric.  

Used a black polka dot fabric for the lining and some text fabric for the handles.

Let me know if you're interested in making your own grocery bag using some of the Denyse Schmidt Promenade fabric.  I have a bit left and I'm happy to swap/de-stash.

Send Me A Text Charm Swap Received

Happy mail day!

This is the first charm swap I've participated in and I'm so happy that I did. These are 80 - 10" charm squares. Each and everyone has some sort of text. 

Can't wait to start using them in my scrappy patchwork.

I've fallen hard for scrappy patchwork. 

I finished this coffee cozy following Jeni's tutorial

I'm in love.
