Christmas Vacation Projects

A busy Christmas vacation, the Momcat kept me on my toes with different projects up in my office/studio. 


In addition to getting the final supplies to get several projects wrapped up and my supplies a bit better organized, we also got two projects started AND finished!

First, we turned an old bulletin board into a fabric colored French board. 


We used fabric we got from the Discount Table at the LQS, magenta gross grain ribbon, an old roll of polyester batting, and brass thumb tacks. I'm super happy with the way that it turned out, and can't wait to use it! We hung it up on the wall that is directly behind the chair at my sewing machine in the little sewing nook in my office.

The second project we worked on is a baby quilt for a friend. I found the cutest little charm pack at the LSQ from the Moda line "Love U."

Following the instructions from CrazyMomQuilt's Tutorial for a coin quilt, we put it together!


It went together super fast, and we're both very happy with how it turned out. We found the blue and orange solids in my stash, so we decided to use two different fabrics since I didn't have enough of the blue. The only thing I have left to finish on the top is to sew a border of the orange fabric on both the top and the bottom.

Here's a close up of the fabric line. Aren't those owls and snails the cutest!!
