My quilt room is so nice and bright now with all the added lights that sewing has been a pleasure these past few days.
This week has been dedicated to both quilt guilds to which I belong: Orange Grove Quilters Guild in Garden Grove and Quilters by the Sea in Long Beach. Orange Grove Quilters Guild is having a Tea and Auction on October 19, 2013. And, Quilters by the Sea will be holding their quilt show on October 26 -27, 2013. Both guilds will be holding a boutique and are looking for some quilty items to sell. I made some of these earlier in the year, and I will probably make a few more, or at least finish the kits I have already assembled.
First, I made four sofa arm pincushions (or chair arm pincushions).
Next, I made four notebook covers. This is Robin Gallagher's pattern and you can find the pattern on her website here.
Then I sewed four card cases. I use one I made a while ago, for my driver's license and ATM card, and have attached my keys. It makes for a quick run somewhere that you don't want to take your purse.
Lastly, I sewed four (do you see a pattern here) travel iron cozies. Don't you hate it when you go to pack up at the end of a workshop and your iron is still too hot to put away? Problem solved.
Have a great weekend and
