Recreational Chevrons and Organization skills

My good friend Heather asked me to make her a chevron quilt, including her favorite things.  Bicycles and retro campers.
This quilt was so fun to make.  It's no secret that I ♥ chevrons.  She picked out the main novelty prints, and I added in the blue and grey fabrics.

She also wanted a 'foot cozy' with delightfully soft fleece fabric to keep her tootsies warm.
This was my first time doing a 'foot cozy' and I definitely learned how to make it better next time.
We dropped this off to her yesterday and it was a success.
I'm so happy she loved it and SOOO happy she chose me to make this for her! 
I'm beyond honored.

Thanks Heather!!

In other news, I was told my sewing area looked 'like crap'!  Haha!
It is true - it did!
So, Saturday I got some organizational items to clean it up.
Ohhh, how I love owls and Target.  They always have cute owl stuff.
I got this cute owl binder to house all my patterns, that had been laying in a big unfortunate messy pile.

Got some page protectors and Voila!  Now if I'm looking for a pattern, I can find it.
Wow - organization at it's finest. ;)  Amazing.

Of course I had to get the matching magazine holder.
Need a quilting magazine?  I have a shameful amount of them.

My rack of crap.
I found this cute 'Quilting Queen' sign and of course I had to have it.
It sits nicely on my rack of crap. 

Have a lovely week!

Squatty Stash Bags

I found this fabric over the weekend and fell in love!
I've gotta go get more!

This are the 'squatty' version of my stash bags.  A little smaller, but still hold a punch.

Need to say something?  Say it with this!
Sigh - I love novelty prints! :)

Comparison of my regular stash bags, versus the squatty version.

These are in the shop!

Smitten with Notting Hill

I cannot tell you how much I am in love with this quilt.  I am keeping it and hanging it in my future sewing room...or somewhere. I haven't decided. :)

I used this pattern.

I quilted the borders with the flower power pattern from Angela Walters FMQ book,
then straight line quilted the middle.

The piecing of this quilt was super fast and I have leftovers to make another!

The Notting Hill fabric line by Joel Dewberry is delicious.  I ♥ it.  I'm pretty sure it's my
favorite for this year so far. Haha.  It's a little pricey, but SO beautiful and the quality of the
cotton is amazing.  Try it - you'll see.
