Something For The Sewing Room

I am on a roll with these little wall hangings made with the DS fabrics.
I am making a third one right now... out of Free Spirit fabrics.
There just might be a fourth one on the horizon...
I'm thinking some Quilt Soup fabrics. Maybe?

I think they would look good hanging in a sewing room.
It was a pattern in AP&Q. I made a little variation. With sashing/without sashing.
Straight borders, not half-square triangle borders like in the pattern.
They are just fun. When I get the next one finished I will be quilting them...
and then they will go out in the mail as gifts.

I turned this little holiday gem, "Flurry" over to Bear Paws Quilt's and More for a shop sample.

Which felt good... having finished something with the Christmas theme...
but really, I guess it's time to start thinking Fall.
A certain somebody reminded me of a birthday coming up.
When it's bday time... that means it's time to start thinking in terms of Autumn, cooler weather,
leaves turning color... aaah, that all sounds good but I am not ready to start baking yet...
it's going to be 100 plus this weekend!

Love your little spools quilts. Which issue is the pattern in? One of my friends made the "present" quilt on retreat a couple of weeks ago. It's adorable too!

I have the magazine with this pattern, I'm going to have to go look for it. I love your little quilts, adorable. Great for gifts. Nice Christmas quilt too.

Hi Sinta!!! I recognize so many of your bloggers here! Small world eh?? Punkie Pie is a good friend of a friend of mine..Deb.
Did you get my email. I was asking if you still lived in Oakhurst? I would love to hear more about the quilt retreat in October up in The Pines too!!!

Carol said...

Sinta, I was looking at the spool pattern, the paper piece sewing machine block looks tricky. I don't do much paper piecing. Can you let me know if you thought it was easy to do. I'm a little bit not sure of how to make it.

Oh those are so cute Sinta! How did you know my b-day is coming up?? :-) LOL Ok, tell me which issue of AP&Q and I'll get it on the list! ;-) Love the Flurry quilt. Have a good evening!
