Moda Doll Panels

I fell in love with these Moda Doll panels.  I can't stop making them.  They are adorable.
 




Camping

I love to camp and this adorable panel hung on my tent on my last camping trip.  This pattern is from the Moda All Starts book All in a Row Again.  The designer is Pat Sloan. Her design had a camper on it but since we use a tent I had to add a tent to my panel. 



I Love Quilting

I discovered a new quilting magazine I just adore.  It is a UK publication called Patchwork and Quilting.  Lots of great ideas, color photos, and fun tips.  I am now a subscriber.
The first project I made was a pin and trash holder to take with me to workshops.
In the spirit of using only things I have around the house I used a small pot holder in the top section to give it the weight to stay on the table.  The cork was leftover from another project.
I took it to a workshop recently and it worked great. I can't wat to see what other projects I can make from this magazine.

Table Runner

When you win all the batik squares during the Right Left Center game at the quilt guild you make a table runner.
This was another pattern I picked up at Road 2 California also by GE Designs.  This one is called Lil' Nellie.
There was a lot of flipping and matching up with this one. Not such an easy pattern to follow.
I do like how it came out and I will enjoy displaying the festive colors.

Sewing in a Straight Line is a great book with tons of easy projects.  I made a jewelry case and a cosmetic bag.  The fabric is some type of drapery fabric I picked up at the free table from my guild.  It is stiff so great to work with on these types of projects and I didn't use interfacing.
This jewelry holder has zipper compartments and a ring holder.
The cosmetic holder could be made with denim for an even sturdier pouch.
I had these cute Tim Holtz labels for a fun flair. These bags will be accompanying my on my next trip.

Placemats

At Road 2 California I picked up this adorable placemat pattern.  The pattern is Friday Fiesta by GE Designs.  It was a great way to use up my scraps from my V and Co Confetti Ombre fabric. 


I love the newsprint and letter fabric.  These were panels I received from my good friend Tina. Instead of having to cut them up I was able to use large sheets of them.  Great way to show off the fabric and make a great placement.  Now I just need to get over my fear of eating on these and possibly staining them.

Swiming Turtle Quilt

This is the quilt Someone to Watch Over You by Barbara Bieraugel Designs.  It was made for a very special teen ,Sierra.  She picked out the pattern and helped me select all the fabrics.
 To make sure the small pieces stayed on I used thread painting instead of applique.  A quilt that gets a lot of use needs to hold up and sometimes applique leaves to many loose ends. I also extended the length of this quilt so that it would cover her from head to toe.  Wide quilts don't always cover the toes.
