Yay! It’s my day! Ok, I know, I’m on the second day but I’ve been so excited about this hop! First, because the fabric from Quilting Treasures is adorable. Second, because I just have the most fun on these blog hops! Which, of course, wouldn’t happen without the wonderful Madam Samm and Cheerleader Carla from Creatin’ in the Sticks and Quilting Treasures.
So, there was a little delay in this fabric and I was totally in fabric-stalker mode trying to find it and then I walked into my local shop and there it was! I happy danced out of there with three prints and a plan. Like a lot of my plans, it went a little differently than I expected, but in a good way. I ended up with three projects and here they are.
First, here’s a picture of my featherweight, naked and alone. Pretty sad, right?
And here she is with her new accessories…
A new cover, a matching pincushion and a tiny tote bag to hold rotary cutters and such. Here’s a closeup of the smaller items along with my favorite Eiffel Tower scissors.
Now, to give credit where credit is due, the paper-pieced Featherweight is a free pattern from Artisania, the pincushion is a link that Bonnie Hunter shared from Moda Bake Shop here, and the little gift tote is from P.S. I Quilt. Don’t you just love the internet for quilting?
So, here’s my question for you. I’m loving my first cover and need to make them for the two upstairs machines. They both sit down in their tables so, if you were making covers, would you make them full height or just the height of the dropped-down machine? Leave me a comment with your thoughts and Mr. Random will choose on winner for these three fat quarters. (I love international comments, too, and will ship internationally.)
Now, be sure to hop on to the rest of today’s very talented crew and see what they’ve been up to. I’m sure I’ll have a whole new list of “want-to-do’s” after the hop is done!
