Cookie Dough Quilt from Perfect 10

Cookie Dough Quilt

So, last month, I participated in the Perfect 10 Sampler Sew Along from Sew Emma’s “Perfect 10” book. The sampler consisted of one block from each of the 16 quilts. It gives the opportunity to see which block most appeals to you, I think. After finishing the sampler, I knew that I wanted to do several of these quilts.  They …

The instructions for the bag can be found here. This is a great project for scraps.  Each little section only takes a small …

I would like to think that I can keep up with the subscription by making every project before receiving the next.  But, that remains to be seen. The November 2018 box was …

Quilter's Planner Weekly Blocks

Quilter’s Planner Weekly Blocks

It appears that I can’t get caught up with this blog. My resolve to get this blog up and running again after a long hiatus has been a bit more difficult than I anticipated.  I guess having time to sew increases the amount of time spent blogging.

This past Christmas, I made 3 different travel bag sets for family members.  I used the Ultimate Travel Bag pattern from byannie.com. Her patterns are very detailed. However, I took the Craftsy class to learn the complicated parts of this pattern. The Craftsy course can be found here. I used quilting cottons and Sew Stable foam interfacing for all of …

My finished perfect 10 sampler top. It still needs to be quilted.   I am not exactly thrilled over the final result.
