Fabric organization and a cute little bag

19 Feb

I ran across the idea of using comic book boards to create mini bolts of fabric for organization. I am in love!

I am making a couple of little bags for gifts for the friends I will be seeing in Austin this weekend. Here is the first one:

A catch up post

14 Feb

I have been busy, but neglectful about posting.

I finished my scrappy trip along top.

Basted and started quilting my windows quilt. It is an Elizabeth Hartman http://www.ohfransson.com/  pattern from her first book.

Image

Made a block for my swap partner. And then made another because I used the wrong background color.

Image

And then decided to make a Valentine’s Day quilt the night before Valentine’s Day because of a pattern posted by one of my favorite quilty bloggers  http://www.canoeridgecreations.com/2013/02/xo-quilt-tutorial.html. I got the top done, and picked out the backing fabric.

I hope to finish the quilting and bind the windows quilt before my quilt guild meeting http://frontrangemodernquiltguild.webs.com/ on Saturday. At the meeting I will probably work on a gift or two to take to Austin with me next week. I am going to QuiltCon, but also visiting with some friends.

A new project!

I have signed up for Canoe Ridge Creations Fresh Mini Quilt Club.  Now I need to wait until March. Impatience is my middle name.

 

Library Window-My first original design

31 Jan

This is the building where I work. I have been thinking that those big center windows would make a good quilt design for a while now. Image

I started playing with Illustrator, and came up with this:

The inside of the library is decorated in blues, grays and that lovely shade of green, so I added a bit of the green in there too. What do you think?Image

Something to help organize all those WIP and heaps of fabric.

I had started writing my projects down in a notebook, but I think these would be even more helpful.  Thank you to Taryn of From Pixels to Patchwork!
