See You In September Blog Hop - Day 9

Image
Welcome to Day 9 of See you In September blog hop. First I wanted to thank the master mind behind these wonderful blog hops, Madm Samm and our amazing cheerleader Shari for all the encouragement throughout the Summer :).

Boy! The Summer just flew away. I had only done one major quilt in the summer but managed to cook up 3 projects to show you today.

First up is "Rainbow Skirt" using RBD small gingham. My daughter loves rainbow and she choose these color order. I used 2.5" strips to make this skirt and all together 3 Jelly Rolls.


Here is the skirt I made:

I have been wanting to sew with knit fabrics for quite some time. I wouldn't say I have mastered it yet. But its at a good point. You can really see the details but I added 2 front pockets and one back pockets too. This is a first for me. Never sewn a pant before.


I am planning to sew a pant with cotton fabric soon. I think I got the hang of it ;).

Last but not least is the cute baby blanket I made for a Customer at…

I'm back - A tutorial for Riley Blake Designs

I hope its true. I am back to sewing after a very long time. This summer has been really busy with kids and my little shop :). Even though I didn't get to sew much, cutting fabrics for the shop was fun.

Is it too early for Christmas, I just couldn't resist this adorable fabric collection by Riley Blake Designs. And  here is a link to my tutorial to make a cute Evergree Quilted Pillow Sham with Ruffles :). Yes, I used my Ruffler foot for the first time and it was lot of fun. More ruffles in the future ;).

As you might have guessed this has been claimed by my daughter and she wants me to make one more. I got to quilt on my home machine after a very long time. I broke 2 needles in 1 hour :(. But the quilting itself was lot of fun.

This is a tad bigger for my pillow form.

I hope this was a good eye candy.
Happy Quilting!
