Stitch on Prints and a Giveaway

Giveaway Closed Winner Lou When I got the opportunity to make a pattern designed by Madam Samm of Sew We Quilt I jumped at the chance! I just love participating in the blog hops originating from her blog. The her Tammy Bag is gorgeous and just what I need to keep my Aurifil 12 wt. thread in with my little needle book and scissor case! These are my three fabrics I chose to make the " Tammy Bag ". I wanted a medium to large print (Beachfront Cottage by RJR Fabrics) for my outside (to stitch on) and a contrasting print (marbly fabric by Northcott) for the inside. The diamond gold fabric (Hoffman California International Fabrics) is my rebellion from the pattern for the piping on the outside pockets. I have had these fabrics in my stash for about 4 or 5 years. Do you ever save fabric you love to find just the right project for it? I am hoping this will be beautiful! I love the seashells! This will be one of the outside pockets when I am done. Just so you know I will

Repairing Utilitarian Old Quilts

First, I just have to show you Apple Jack Cotton, by Tim and Beck, from Moda. Isn't this fabric line so cute! I won a jellyroll during the Quilting Gallery Blog Hop from Sharon @ Vroomans Quilts ! Thank you Sharon, you have such great taste in fabric, I plan on something fun for my littlest baby girl! The next blog hop will be "April Showers" with Madam Samm ! I bought this old quilt at a yard sale for a $1.00. It had no batting, just a piece of muslin sewn on. One day I planned to deconstruct it so I could practice Free Motion Quilting (FMQ) that day has arrived! Repairs needed to be made where it had a couple of little wear holes. I grabbed a couple of scraps and went to work. Cut a scrap bigger than your hole. Then iron all 4 sides over about 1/8". Cut out a piece of "Heat Bond", I used "Lite" because that is what I had on hand, that fits almost to all the sides (to big and you get yuck on your iron). Now, iron the "Heat Bond&
