I picked up Sam Hunter’s Quilt Talk book about a month ago and am so excited to start making projects from the book. I can’t even remember which project prompted me to buy the book because there are so many great projects inside!
While flipping through the book I found a sewing machine cover project which I’m going to make as soon as I have some time. I’m going to modify it a bit and add pockets and it will double as a mat for my machine as well as a cover.
I have a thread catcher made out of Gracie Girl (by Bee in My Bonnet) and I knew I wanted the cover/mat to match so I started buying pre-cuts and misc yardage for my ‘someday’ mat project. Once I saw this pattern, I knew I was going to make it.
Gretchen recently alerted me to a few of listings on #thegreatfabricdestash on Instagram and I snapped them up. The pink and grey numbers and the blue clocks are the newest additions to my stash, to accompany the other two fabrics I already had.
Now if I only had a day or two to devote to this project…I’d really like to get started (and finished). But it’s likely not going to happen until January, or possibly February. 😦
Linking up to Molli today!
