I Can't Take Credit

My grandmother (we called her Nanny) hand pieced this around the world quilt top.  I'm not sure when she made it, but some of the fabrics in it look pretty old.

I took it to my friends at 3 Stitch Creations and they quilted it for me on their long arm.

I finished it with the binding.

It's beautiful!

Happy Sewing!

It's a New Year!

I know that you know it - I just wanted to tell you again - you're welcome!

So today is the first Sunday in 2013 - and I have done very little sewing in this new year so far.  I've been talking about making a new purse for myself - I started outlining my requirements, measurements, etc., and then lost my 'umph', so to speak.

Today I did bind this pink, green and white lap sized quilt.  I took it to my friends over at 3 Stitch Creations and they did some quilting magic to it!

It's a lap size - 46 x 58 and it has a green with white polka dots backing and binding.

It will be for sale in my etsy shop once I get some good photos.  If you would be interested in purchasing it before I get it listed, contact me through my etsy shop or facebook page or catch me on twitter!

I have a second quilt to bind - it's an around the world pattern (about twin size, I think) that my grandmother hand pieced.  It was in some stuff of my mom's and I figured I should get it finished.  Maybe one of the nieces will want it someday.

I'm hoping for a busy sewing year, if there's anything you want me to custom make for you - just contact me!

Happy Sewing!
