Hi makers, quilters and sewists!
I am back again to talk about the latest projects I've made related to quilting. Some are useful things I needed and there is a whole new quilt as well for our bed. Ready to know more? :) Keep reading!
My aim this year regarding quilting, apart from keep releasing new patterns, it's been making a couple of quilts just for fun (maybe to use on the bed or around the house) and then create little things I actually needed (eg. glasses case) but giving them a twitst and make them quilty ;)
I created some HSTs with leftover scraps from other projects (I think these are Bella Solids), as well as using some lovely fabric from Tula Pink as lining. For the binding, I used this tape I had already created from a Ruby Star Society fabric I made for a virtual class a while ago. The wadding was again just some leftover I had laying around. Last, the lovely label is from La Petite Maison Couture.
The second project was actually two similar pouches or cases for my sunglasses and normal glasses. I was tired of seeing my regular black ones I got when buying the glasses, so I made these two :)
Again, I used some leftover fabrics. The yellow and white one was an already quilted fabric I got on my trip to Japan. I had a bit left from a waistcoat I had just finished so I used it for this. Lining is Ruby Star.
For the other one, I used again some leftover Tula Pink fabric, which I have already used for a tablet cover (and I still have some more left!). Lining is the same as in the other pouch.
The next project I want to share and that I am specially proud of is this laptop case / sleeve I created using selvedges from fabrics I have been collecting along the years. It was quite tricky reaching the amount needed for my laptop size and had to keep adding more, hehe
In the end, I added two solid stripes at the top and bottom on both sides for the zipper and bottom of the case. The lining is Ruby Star Society again (I know, I love their fabrics!) and most selvedges are also from them, as well as Pure Solids from Art Gallery or Cotton + Steel :)
You can see a video in fast motion on my Instargram on how I made it here.
Last, I want to share my finished Ombre Gems Quilt by the amazing designer Emily Dennis.
I basically used the same colours she used as well for one of her samples, I couldn't resist! It was so lovely... These are all V and Co ombré metallics. I am so happy with how it's turned out! As it is quite big, I decided send it to a longarmer and I am so pleased with the work she has done :)
And that's it for now! You can take a look at what I am working on at the moment on my Instagram. If you fancy starting quilting, I teach 1-2-1 virtual classes and you can always find my quilting patterns here.
Thank you for reading and see you again soon here!
