I can't believe its been more than a month since I last posted.  I have been pretty busy with life things outside of the sewing machine.  April is our month of birthdays and May is full of graduations.  Needless to say I have been gifty sewing lately.  Photos below are from Instragram.

This is an iPad case I made for my mom for her birthday.  I included a pocket on the back for cables and stylus pens.  

I also tried out my first 3D sewing in the form of purses.  This first purse I made came out too tiny but it definitely got my feet wet to this type of sewing.

My next purse came out much better and I think I have a couple more to sew for others.

And finally I need your help on something.  I made these blocks and have been floundering with getting a layout.  There is an uneven number of warm/cool colors and it makes for an uneven layout quilty-wise.  I have been leaning towards C for no real reason.   And I would love your input!


  1. I have the 241 bag pattern, too! I would like to make a bag using it by the end of this month. We'll see how that goes!

    I am drawn to quilts C and D. They seem the most "balanced" of the four.

  2. I am loving that iPad pouch - now just to get myself an iPad so that I can make one ;) Also loving that block! A is speaking to me most, because I like the way the red cross section in the 2nd layer 'pops'.
