Here are the sweet ladies enjoying all the color in our shop but the neatest thing was the quilts Lina brought for us to see....go to Webfabrics facebook page to enjoy the craftmanship of Lina! Thanks Ladies!!
We had another fun swap at ORBC...trading packs of 25 five inch charms. I sewed mine in a 5x5 grid seperating each finished 22 1/2" square with grey Kona. I sewed those together in 3 sections for easier quilting through my machine. Once I am done I'll make a label that will help me always remember who gave me which set of charms. This baby is going on our bed...hopefully soon!;)
Last week Maria got a new Acer notebook to use when she goes to Oxford Brookes University next month...instead of toting around her 8lb laptop she can skip around with her 3lb Acer! She needed a case and her notebook is smaller than a laptop but bigger than a netbook...so of course she asked me to make her something.
So we went looking into my pile of unfinished projects and found a tablerunner that fit the bill, sewed up the sides, added a little ribbon to close the flap and problem solved. I love it when a solution is right at my fingertips!
Last but not least I wanted to share some recent fun I had at the shop...see that huge stack of fabric....
...it's Kaffe Fassett's newest collection....and it is awesome! I had to cut 4 half yards and 6 fat quarters of every one of them....there are 33 bolts....and.....
Tomorrow I'll let you know who won the Dutch Wax Prints and scraps giveaway!!
Until then Happy 4th to all my US peeps!!:)
