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

Quilt happy,

Oh! wow! All of your little projects are just so cute!! love them. Now, I don't know what gives regarding making comments from the cellie because the comment made and submitted apparently did not "post", lol. Anyhoo, those are great projects for my craft table; guess I need to hop over to Robin's and check out her patterns!!
Have a lovely Sunday!
