Yikes

It's been forever since I updated. I'm sorry about that. I actually took a little hiatus from sewing a bit, and began reading new stories like my life depended on it.

However, my camera is willing to cooperate (somewhat) and I have pictures for you!!!










Here is quilt 1 of the 3-in-one I've been going on about. It's the largest, and is 4 blocks by 3 blocks. Our grass was wet at the time, so you only get a partial view ;)






This is the quilting of the pillow (below) that I tried my hand at. I believe I did alright, but it definitely could've been better. Sometimes my machine knows just when to man-handle me!



Here is the overall pillow. The sun is bright outside and really made the cream fabric pop!



This is the smallest quilt. It's fuzzy because I don't have the best camera in the world. If you notice, two of the squares aren't like the others!! This top isn't 'finished' because I have fabric on order to make a border for it. Other than that, this is what ya get :)



Here is the middle sized quilt. It was actually the easiest to make, no angled cutting or crazy corners to work with. I'm truly proud of my three!




I'm especially proud of this gem! It's the additional change purse to the actual purse I made for my best friend in the entire world. She saw the fabric and instantly fell in love. I figured she deserves something for putting up with crazy 'ole me. But this was the first time I'd ever used 1. zippers, and 2. ric rac! I found out what was making my machine not 'quilt' right - I was using horrible horrible batting! I bought some different batting for the purse and change purse, and man did it change my life! See those little curley-q's? IT'S A MIRACLE!




Purse and wallet-thingy. I'm so proud!
