First Serger Project

August 13, 2008

I managed to produce two valances with my new serger without any major problems – yeah for me! Now my bathrooms are complete…

AND… I still have fabric left over for other projects… sweet!


Ready for delivery

Yeah! I finished the quilt. . . Washed and dried to fluffy softness.



Rag-time Quilt

August 6, 2008

This is the final layout that I’ve decided to sew for my niece’s quilt. The colours don’t do it justice but this is kinda what it will look like…

I used Paint Shop Pro to play with the layout of 16 dragons (my limiting fabric), 23 frogs, and 24 hearts. Hopefully the fringes won’t ruin the sherbet coloured flannels.

In a day or two I hope to post a photo of the finished quilt. Now I’m wondering what to make, as a little something for the other niece… so she won’t feel left out. . . she received a quilt 10 years ago!).

Perhaps a quilted bag or maybe I’ll use the leftovers to make a pet mat (her cat may decide to sleep on her sister’s bed… we can’t have that!).
