Make It Sew

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!

About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter

    That is a cute project! I love that number print, the grey one came in a blogger’s bundle that I used on my quilt here: I love recognizing fabric in other people’s stash or quilts that I have in my stash or have used in quilts before. Thanks for sharing!!

  2. Those fabrics are so cute! This will be a great project! I, too, am looking forward to finding time to do a little more sewing! Here’s to happy holidays and a great time sewing in 2015!

  3. I’m in the same boat. I spent all of yesterday cutting out, ironing, and scanning all the letters, then resizing them in Photoshop. No idea when I’ll get around to putting my quilt together though.

    Looks like a perfect combination, Julie. Those pretty fabrics will make a gorgeous version of Sam’s pattern. Your machine is going to look so spiffy!

    Hope you have a wonderful holiday season!

I want to hear from you...
