Sewing Machine Cover

Machine Cover

So, here is yet another project from the Smitten fabric line. The pattern is for a small wallhanging, but I revised it to make a cover for my Bernina 740.  It is so pretty. I just love looking at it.

I’ve never done a picture project like this and during the cutting process, I got a little scared.  There are a LOT of little pieces.

Once I got started sewing, I realized it just goes together in small easy segments and then you sew the segments together. It ended up taking a couple of hours to construct.  No problem!

I love one block quilts! Especially one where the size will be determined by your choice of a layer cake, a charm pack or a mini-charm pack paired with any background.  The Moda Love Quilt Pattern fits the bill and is so easy.  It can be pieced in a very few hours … any size!

Garden Variety Charm Pack

I chose the Garden Variety Charm Pack that is the same fabric that I made my Farm to Garden Wallhanging. I loved the fabric that much. It gives a clan vintage look and the fabric designs are small enough to use on any project.

I was especially pleased with how my points matched up this time.  I guess practice really does make perfect.

Perfect 10 Cookie Dough Quilt

This quilt is ginormous.  It finishes at 88 1/2″ square which would work on a queen sized bed.

I don’t have it quilted yet, but I so pleased with how the fabrics look after construction.  The background fabric was a good choice.  I’m loving everything about this.

It is so big … 88 1/2 x 88 1/2 and my shoulders aren’t looking forward to the quilting process on my Bernina, so I think I’ll send it out to by long arm quilter and get her to just choose what to do about the quilting.

Tropical Oasis

Included in this month’s Sew Sampler box are 2 charm packs of Sun Print fabric by Alison Glass for Andover Fabrics. The colors are so vivid and perfectly tropical. What better pattern choice for this fabric than the included pattern, Mai-Tai.

Mai-Tai Quilt Pattern

The pattern features a small 6″ classic pineapple block. Background fabric was not included, so I decided to use the Black on Black cross weave from Moda fabrics and can be found at I used this background in the Cookie Dough quilt and had plenty left over for this project.  The black fabric really makes the bright tropical colors pop.

Add a Quarter 6″ Plus Pink Ruler

The Add a Quarter ruler really makes trimming the block during the constructions process.

Alex Anderson’s 4-In-1 Essential Sewing Tool

The sewing tool is nice. I already had tools that I prefer, so I’m going to gift this to my granddaughter in a future quilty box gift.
