SHE WHO SEWS .....

SHE WHO SEWS

Welcome to Day 1 of an exciting blog hop. Thank you to Mdm. Samm (SewWeQuilt ) and to Carla (Creatin' In The Sticks) for inspiring us to expand our imaginations and sew.

A wonderful selection "HANDMAIDS" fabric created by Quilting Treasures made working on these blog projects a pleasure.

                    A perfect little runner for tea time break .

                                           Mug Rugs **


There are so many neat characters in this fabric. I looked at this and saw a Scottish lady. She was calling for tartan.

A ruffled fringe for framing and I have a new cushion.

      And hand-holding Handmaids rule on the pillow back.

                 I created a mini quilt using the gentler colors.  

What started as a small lap quilt grew. The pieced back includes  one of the original panels. I was not supposed to start another quilt but those designs just spoke "quilt". 

Hand quilting will be in this quilt's future. This picture was taken in -22 on a beautiful cold  winter day after a blizzard. 

 Thank you for visiting.  A visit to other sewing rooms will provide more stitching delights.

** Mug Rug pattern -- "Cuppa Coaster" -- may be found in     Quilter's World Winter 2013

  2. Beautiful projects. I love your min quilt. I really need to make a wall hanging for my Sewing room. (Studio) I am going to start calling it a sewing studio. Sounds so "grown up."
    Your mug rugs are very sweet. I really like that design.
    Thank you for hopping. Great job and very inspiring.

  43. You really were inspired by the fabric and the panels, I can see! The wind was not helping to get an outside shot, was it and especially that cold out. The wind chills must have been horrid. Only a quilter would go through that, right? THX for sharing with us today.

Actually, all your projects are stunning. You already have a ruffle project completed - lol. I just had to go back and take another gander at all the beautiful work. Not only are the projects wonderful but also the workmanship. Thanks for participating and giving us something to be in awe of.
