What Others Are Sewing 3
I love it when readers send me pictures of projects they are working on that have been made from my projects or fabrics. I know you love seeing the projects too, so this is my third post dedicated to “What Others Are Sewing.”
First I would like to introduce you to Kay Harold. She is a subscriber to this blog, but also a round about friend. Our husbands happen to work for the same company but in different states and in different roles. Kay moved to a town I used to live in and has become friends with a lady in my old quilting group. Small world huh? Well, Kay and I correspond and our love of quilting and sewing have brought us together as quilt-pals, even though we have never met each other.
Kay enjoyed my Valentine’s Card Project and really took the project beyond just Valentine’s Day. I will be doing a separate post in the near future explaining some of Kay’s techniques in making the project even easier and in some cases even into a no-sew project. With small adjustments, this card project can be adapted for other holidays or celebrations throughout the year.
The photo below shows Kay’s log cabin blocks for her Valentine’s Day Cards.
Here Kay made St. Patricks Day cards with using rubber stamps on one card and no-sew method on the other. Again, I will have more detailed instructions on another post.
Yesterday, I got an email from Sally Garrison, she made this baby quilt using fabrics from my Love Grows Collection.
Sally is using the Gathers & Giggles pattern from Sew Much Ado. What a beautiful quilt Sally, thank you so much for sharing it with us. Your baby quilt is so lovely, the effect is very Shabby Chic looking, what a lucky baby!
My last What Others Are Sewing projects to share with you are by a dear friend of mine, Marianne Jensen. Marianne is an amazing women and an amazing sewer. She sent me this beautiful tote bag she made using a pattern by Penny Sturges called Bow Tucks Tote #PS008 available from many online sources.
Marianne made the tote in fabrics from my Blue Skies collection. I love it! I can carry a ton of stuff in it and love all the interior pockets!
How cute is that tote?
But wait, there is more! I told you Marianne is an amazing sewer, she made me a quilt top made from the Fat Quarter Shuffle pattern by Connie Barr of Constantly Stitching ‘n More. Neither Marianne or I are a great one for getting the quilting finished on quilt tops, so I already have this over to the long arm quilter to be finished. I cannot wait to be enjoying it as a throw quilt in my family room! Thank you again Marianne, I truly love the tote and the throw quilt!
I love seeing how my fabrics and my projects help to inspire creativity. It is a wonderful feeling and your creativity inspires my creativity. Thank you very much for sharing your projects.
Keep on Sewing!
