Customer Quilt

Just finished this quilt for a customer.
Normally I just do the quilting  for customers, but this
 one I did from start to finish.
I cut, pieced, and quilted this Brown Bear quilt.

The picture  is what it looked like before I loaded it onto my long arm quilting machine.

Below is how it looked after I quilted it. I wish I had gotten a closer shot of the quilting. I used a variegated thread and fun quilting pattern called Popcorn.

Diaper Bags/Book Bags

I just love, love, these bags.
This one was a custom order, she didn't want any crystals on her Diaper Bag, so I had to step away from my love of bling and leave my crystals home.
But no fear, I will be blinging again shortly.

These bags have been used as Diaper Bags, Book Bags, Camera Bags, Craft Bags and the list goes on.
These bags below are all available for purchase.

Don't  you just love these  fabrics???
Free Spirit, Amy Butler, Micheal Miller, what's not to love?

Wow, I can't believe it has been almost a month since my last post !!!

I must confess, I have has a little trouble juggling school being out, my son moving home and watching my sister's two young kids for a few days. I just haven't had the time or motivation to get anything done.
I finally got my mojo back and have been busy sewing again. Boy have I missed it!
So here it is at last !!!!!
One of my new designs. 
 This was a lot of fun to make and I love the way it turned out.
It doesn't have as much bling as my other purses but you know I will find a way to add more.
The flower is made from  felt and is a soft yellow color. The center of the flower is an antique inspired button with crystals.
The fabric I used is a Amy Butler that has been in my stash for a while. I have always loved it and was waiting for that special project to use it. Can't wait to get into my fabric stash and make more. Look for future blooms.
