This and that

August 22, 2011

With 4 quilts at the long-arm quilter’s, and 4 more needing backings and then off to the quilter’s, I thought it was time for a break from quilt tops. So instead I sewed up some pillowcases from Kumari Garden (this month’s feature fabric).

And then I helped Anna sew some pillowcases for an upcoming birthday party. She chose an orange & pink scheme from the Sweet Broderie collection to coordinate with her friend’s bedroom.

You can find a great collection of pillowcase patterns over at All People Quilt as part of their 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge. We used  the Roll It Up pattern to make banded pillowcases with no exposed raw edges.

I also finished the binding on my Hugs and Kisses quilt.

The beautiful custom quilting was done by Karen Cole in Dorchester. In a perfect world my points would be picture perfect, but I still love this quilt in all it’s bright and cheerful and imperfect glory. Kits are available in the shop.

I wanted to let locals know that I have a booth at the upcoming FibreFest 2011 in Almonte, September 10 & 11. The show takes place at several venues in Almonte, and I’ll be set up in the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum. Hope to see you there!
