Christmas Projects

This is a Bird Brain design that I finished this summer. My first redwork project. There is beading and wool embellishment along with ric rac and pom poms. I have enjoyed having it to decorate for the season!
This little mini quilt is machine embroidery, prairie points and bells. Am really trying to add embellishments but as you can see I believe less is better. Besides I like really quick projects. Then move on to the next:) I wish I had the patience to create works of art that you see at the quilt shows. I am working on it!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!

More Baby Quilts

These 2 quilts are soon to go to their new homes. The Zig Zag quilt goes to a friend's soon to be born second son and the Animals in Automobiles goes to my nephews son. Lots of fun bright colors to make them smile! The embroidery designs are from Embroidery Library and stitched out on my Brother 6 needle. I quilted them myself.

A Quilt for a New Baby Girl

Do you like the colors? My daughter assures me these colors are in.
I just tried a new to me binding technique. All done on the machine. I love the way it came out. Here is the link http://www.52quilts.com/2012/05/tuesday-tutorial-susies-magic-binding.html. Try it, I think you'll love it too!
The back of the quilt is Minky (really the faux stuff from Joann's). Very soft! This quilt is washed and ready for the new baby's arrival.

Bags for the Bag Lady (me)

Check out the zipper on the suede bag with my name on it! It has a wrap around zipper. I found the tutorial at AnnTheGran.com . The blue bag was made with ByAnnie.com Soft and Stable stabilizer. See how nice the bag stands up. The material is Pure by Sweetwater. And two little zip-around bags to match. Bag lady heaven!
