We had our monthly Open Sew last week at Sew Original. Katie finished this unicorn pillow from Elizabeth Hartman Designs. It’s a birthday gift for her daughter. She used my favorite fabric 🙂
Here’s Lindsay’s fishy quilt for her new nephew! Lindsay is the mom of three little girls so she was power sewing last Thursday night! Great binding!
Hand quilted! She used the printed spirals on the background fabric as her guide.
Here’s Jennifer’s improv quilt. She took an improvisational piecing class from Denyse Schmidt at QuiltCon. Such a great message from the mom of two little girls.
Liz plans to gift these tea towels to her mother-in-law. I understand they are big UVA fans.
Love the hand embroidered hearts! I know they will be appreciated!
I’m working on Sarah Fielke’s 2019 Block of the Month. It’s intense and I’m really enjoying it. I’ve been piecing for a LONG time but I’m always amazed by how much fabric a 1/4″ seam allowance really takes! This is a 4″ finished block.
