Kitchen Appliance Handle Covers

Hello everyone! I was hoping to have my 4th finish for you today but it's remaining a WIP for now. My aunt asked for 2 sets of handle covers for her refrigerator, freezer, oven and microwave doors. I was hoping to have them done for Christmas but like so many other things, I just ran out of time. I have all of them sewn and the Velcro done on 1 of them but I'm afraid they are too narrow. So I need to take the finished one over to my aunt's house and measure. Fingers crossed it fits!

I used fabric from an older collection by Connecting Threads, called Birchtree Lane. I think it will look very nice in my aunt's kitchen.

I'm linking up today with WIP Wednesday and Let's Bee Social.

I Love 2 Quilt

Hello! I have my 3rd 2016 Finish-a-Long finish to show you today. I got the binding on my I <3 2 Quilt wall hanging and it is now ready to go up on my sewing room wall! I put corner hangers on the back, along with a couple loops along the top to slide a piece of wood through. I plan on using Command Strips to hang it on my wall but right now it's temporarily up with push pins. :)



I also starting working on a quick charm square quilt. I needed something quick and easy and this fit the bill right now. :)

Works in Progress

Hello! I've got a few things going this week. I finally finished the quilting on my "I Love 2 Quilt" wall hanging. This is a pattern that I tested for Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts way back in June, 2014! I started the quilting that summer with the intention of free motion quilting all the white space but I never got around to it. I decided to finish it just using my walking foot and I used a wavy line stitch. I really like how it turned out! Now I just need to bind it and hang it up. :)

I pre-washed the fabrics for my kids' new bedroom curtains. The constellation fabric came from Connecting Threads and glows in the dark. That's for Max's room and he's so excited! The navy with tiny white polka dots is for Annabelle's room. She needs a bit more navy in her decor so this will fit the bill.

I'm excited that several of my microwave bowl cozies have sold through my Etsy shop recently and I need to replenish my stock. My first instinct was to visit Connecting Threads' website and pick out some new fabric to order but, since this is the year of the stash, I went through mine and pulled a bunch of fabric I can use to make more. I found quite a bit and I'm very excited!

Midnight Mystery Top Finished!

Hello. I am excited to show you my finished Midnight Mystery quilt top! Thank you, Cheryl, for creating this beautiful quilt pattern. It has been so cool to see all the variations that have come from it. Cheryl gave us the option to peek at the final pattern before we started to help us decide if we wanted to participate and what fabrics to use. This was my first mystery quilt so I wanted it to be a true mystery and I'm glad I didn't peek!

I chose to use a palette of Patriotic fabrics for my quilt and it worked out perfectly. I don't think I could have planned it better had I peeked! Cheryl told us in the beginning that there would be 4 fabrics - A,B,C and D. A would touch B, B would touch C and C would touch D. But D would not touch A. So with that information, I arranged my fabrics in a way that appealed to me. And it worked out that my navy ended up as the background. I have wanted to use navy as a background for quite some time. Actually since I saw Cheryl use it in her Irish Chain Quilt-a-long quilt! :)

Once I get this quilted and finished, I'll take some outdoor pictures so you can see the colors better. The white is really a silvery gray with small white stars. But until then, here is "Star Spangled."
