INSPIRATION IMAGINATION CREATION
This is my central star for my Shimmer Braid quilt. I selected the three most neutral colors amid all the fabrics I have previously used for this quilt.
My sewing machine is still working hard on my Shimmer Braid Quilt. After a trip to the store to replace the empty bobbins, I was able to finish the quilting of the four central braids.
More crazy quilting made with my sewing machine.
And a tutorial on how I used the back fabric of a quilt to make the binding
This is the first hand-quilting work I have made, some 10 years ago. I attended a course where we made a sandwich, mark the top and played with a tiny needle.Last week, I decided to make an ironing mat with it, instead of just keeping it folded somewhere.
I was in need of a birthday present. So I gathered the supplies that you can see in the picture above. While sewing, it occurred to me that the navy twill tape I firstly chose was way too dark. Hmmm. It’s the only one I had in my supplies. Then, my eyes fell on the remaining pieces of the shorts. There, for my convenience, was finished leg bottoms, with a similar width. I cut alongside the stitches. It could not be any more perfect.
This is a coat I sew for myself, a few years ago, in its upgraded version. To make it, I used a McCalls pattern, an old jeans dress (from the 1990’s) and an old pair of jeans.
