Classy Caddy

It's unheard of ............... started   AND  finished .................   all in the same week!  This is such a handy item for sew-in gatherings.  Use  an interesting fabric for the purse.

It totes the Rowenta large size travel iron. It opens to reveal a pressing pad.  What fun is that?!

That's my thrill of the day.  I'm going back to working on my marathon of school bags for the UMW misson now.  :D

Lattice Garden blocks 3 & 4

I have assembled the March and April blocks for the Lattice Garden quilt.  I do not excell with applique techniques, so I've had my little trials to get thru these blocks.

I should have pre-tested the iron. It spit out a spot onto the white background.  How did I know that would happen ? How do I get the stain out?  Have I learned to use a press cloth when using white?  Probably!

Sofa Row Quilt - Finished

It has been forever since I've made a post!  I have been here every day.  Really!  I have not had anything worthwhile to share.

So I pressed on and pressed on until I could stand this project no more!  I am so happy to say this quilt is finished.  I have struggled with this quilt in every effort I took for it.  From a distance, I guess it is attractive enough!  No close inspections, please.

Maybe I could enlist someone to add butterflies, birds or flowerbuds to the ends of those 6 branches?  Right now, I need a break.  lol  It measures 67" x 72".  Was I supposed to have so much fabric leftover?
