First the quilt...
This is for my room. I fell in love with this fabric online and was so glad they had it at the quilt shop in town. It's Moda's 3 Sisters Etchings collection. The pattern I'm using is Eleanor Burns's make a Quilt in a Day log cabin pattern.
It's really simple once you get started. At first I was a little confused because I'm not use to following quilt instructions and had to make sure I was putting things in the right order.
Here is the layout for adding the 2nd Dark Fabric. She just adds the already sewn pieces to the strip as she goes. I am a pinner so...
Next step is easy, just sew 1/4 in. seam down the strip.
Last I use my ruler to cut the blocks apart.
I'm really enjoying this quilt. I could be a line worker somewhere. It suits me :).
Okay Ang, how are my colors? If you like them I picked them out, if not Greg did!
Pillow for the technilogicly advanced... and not so advanced :D.
My mother-in-law will be having knee surgery soon and I wanted to give her something for her time of recuperation. She is not technilogically savy, but my brother-in-law gave her an iPad several months back, so I thought she might play games on it or do some reading the modern way. I came across this great pattern on Pinterest and loved it. It was increadably easy to make. Below are the pics of the one I did.
