quick project.

I have this new little toy, that I just love. A netbook! Now I can read through all the blogs I follow at night while watching TV. But I could not let my Netbook go with out a fabulous cover. So I made it a Sleeve. I am making a tote to match but I have to get the the quilt finished. The quilting is done and I am on to the binding today.
Here is a picture of my sleeve, I used a decorative stitch on the brown fabric, then appliqued a few little hexagon flowers to decorate it. Was a nice fun and fast project.

The quilt is moving along nicely.

New Quilt

 I think this might be my favorite quilt. I just love how it is coming along. It has been a free flowing project. My daughters (age 16 & 19) have helped with the setting of the blocks. We kind of had to make things fit. I wanted it to be double bed size, and I only had so much fabric. I used 2 jelly rolls, and then added the border. I did have to pull a few strips out of the jelly rolls because they did not match. But I did manage to get it to the size I need. I am quilting it in a wavy pattern and I am not quilting the waves in the white. That will have straight lines. But more on that later along with more pictures. Here is a little peak.

Hexagon flowers

I made these cute little guys to go on my new netbook sleeve. I just love making these little flowers.

It is a busy summer and one of things I have been doing is teaching sewing to some kids. I am not allowed to post their faces, without signed permission. So that is why there are some headless pictures. My friends daughter was also in the class and she is fine with her daughters picture being on the internet. So little Julie is in some of the pictures.

We were very busy they made, a pillowcase, tote bag, PJ pants, and a cool draw string bag.

We had lots of fun, and I even had a couple of  big kids made a bag. :)
