Nine months ago a favorite co-worker announced a baby on the way...what a great opportunity to design a quilt.  After a while I learned it was going to be a girl so I put pencil to paper and started to draw!  Here is a close-up of one section:

I hand appliqued the entire quilt and then machine quilted it.  A very happy cat sunning himself in the garden.

I have a bit more quilting to do in the blue section...but Tabitha had a beautiful baby girl and I wanted her to see the I put on the binding a little sooner than I normally would have.
This is the first time I designed a quilt myself and it has been a wonderful experience.

Happy Sewing...

When I bought the fat quarter collection of Amy Butler's Soul Blossom I had a totally different project in mind. 

But, that project was not to be.  So I decided to do a half square triangle wall hanging with a solid white. I'm really liking the way it turned out.  I quilted in the ditch around each square and then diagonally across the white a quarter inch.  The colors just scream SUMMER!

I also made a new summer bag using the Margo Bag Pattern by Lazy Girl Designs.  I used "Lovely" by Sandy Gervais...another nice summery fabric line.

Thanks for stopping by...and remember you can click on any photo for a larger view.

 Guilty of not posting in forever!  Working for a toy company really can work your last nerve for the last 2 months of the year!  BUT, it's finally over...WELL, it's been over for a couple months now, but I had some commitments to fulfill and some catch-up work around the house.
My latest project is a Fabric Postcard Exchange with my Bernina Yahoo group.  We all needed to make 9 postcards and then mail them out.  These are the ones I made:  Just click it to enlarge the photo.
It was alot of fun...I'm sorry I never thought to take a picture of the back!  I also rearranged  my sewing room a bit.  Here's Jaimie and Jelly Bean hanging out!

 In the works is a project with "Soul Blossom" by Amy Butler.  I got the complete line in fat quarters and I'm going to do some serious cutting up of this fabric
for the quilt that is on the cover of this great book by Carol Gilham Jones and Bobbi Finley.

There's a couple of other projects that are almost finished that I'll be posting about soon.
I PROMISE !!!     So please forgive me for being so behind on my posts...however...I have been reading every one elses posts!   Happy Sewing....Lynne
