Quilt Shop on Main

In this day and age (particularly the age) I don’t have a huge desire to hand quilt—perhaps it is the old finger syndrome.

I found it easy to quilt fabrics using the traditional grid, but I was not comfortable with the free hand quilting or stippling using my sewing machine. We are so lucky to have a relatively new quilt shop and Jasper and when they offered a three hour couse in machine quilting I jumped at the opportunity. We had a nice experience with several different options, styles, and batting textures. Now all I need to do is find the time to do more practicing here at home.

Cabo Bucket Tote & Heavenly Textured Handbag

It is always such a pleasure to complete a sewing project. Today I have double satisfaction as I completed two purses that were in progress. In the photograph, the bag on the left is the Cabo Bucket Tote made with a cheerful winter scene of cardinals and other winter birds. On the right is the Heavenly Textured Handbag (I adapted the pattern a little bit as I did not have any Texture Magic™ on hand).

Which do I like best? The Cabo Bucket Tote wins hands down and not just because I love the patten on the fabric. The Cabo has more pocket, it has a nice little magnet mechanism to give the purse a nice shape, and it uses D-rings to attach the handles which are a nice touch.

Cabo Bucket Tote

Had a nice time at the quilting class at The Common Thread in Dahlonega recently. Cindi Clark was a fine instructor and we (the five students) had an informative, yet enjoyable time.

The fabrics were a pleasant variety. For a long time, I’ve desired a special wintery purse, and I think I found just the fabric. I had to leave class before I completed my project, but all I need to do are three steps… Attach the lining and stitch a decorative seam across the top and sew on the button. I expect I’ll find time to complete the Tote this evening and will post a pic promptly. Here is a view of the fabric I choose.

FGS 2011, Springfield: Digital Scrapbooking

Before you know it, it will be time to attend the Federation of Genealogical Societies 2011 Conference, Pathways to the Heartland, in Springfield, Illinois (September 7-10).

I’m excited about the opportunity I will have to present a one-hour presentation called “Digital Scrapbooking.” During the presentations I will be providing techniques for organizing your family history using scanners, digital images, digital audio files, digital video clips, word processing, and genealogy database files, will be discussed. There is a lot to talk about in just sixty short minutes, but my goal is to motive those in attendance and have them going home anxious to get their documents and photographs ready for digital scrapbooking. This session (S-407) will be presented on Saturday (September 10th) morning from 8:00-9:00 am.

Hope to see you there!

Wallet

This past week I had an opportunity to take a class on constructing a cloth wallet (from a quilter’s stash) with Jeanne  at Sew Memorable.  We used a pattern created by Karen Comstock of Quiltricks in Cary, N.C.

The first three image show the work in progress while the last images show different views of my finished product.

The Ultimate Tote Bag

The large “Ultimate Tote Bag” (pattern design of Linda Jeffreys found at Sew Memorable, Dawsonville, Georgia) is very roomy and delightful for carrying items such as a notebook, camera, small laptop, etc. to a research repository. It is versatile enough to even carry your towel, et al to the beach. The pattern calls for two outside pockets on one side of the bag, but you can decide if you want one or two pockets on one or two sides. The design also calls for pockets on the interior of the bag to help organize the tote even more.

Casserole Kimono

In a December post ofGenea-Quilters ‘Ole Myrt provided a photo of the Casserole Kimono she made for Carrie. I was inspired and thought this would be fun to make for myself and also as a possible house gift visiting friends. Thanks, Myrt, for the post!
