NO Pattern, Theme, & S C R A P P Y

Posted on

Hello Everyone!

Hope all is well, and Blessed as I’m. The quilt I’m about to share is one I truly like because it is in a class by itself. It has no theme, style, pattern, and the color is sort of faded. As soon as I can get more scraps/fabric for the backing it will be completed. I started this quilt before the previous one.

Now that I’ve a little more idea of quilting, by the time this quilt is finished this side will probably become the back. Kindly feel free to comment letting me know what you think. Thank you in advance.

Here it is! Truly Novice & Scrappy.

Until my next post, Be Blessed Everyone.

FREESTYLE

I’m creating my blocks with a freestyle method. Store bought patterns at this time look difficult, but will try them soon.

TABLE TOP

Posted on

This was made working with whatever scraps I had. The intention was to use scraps with purple prints, and shades forming quilt/patchwork look. It didn’t work as planned, but the receiver loves it. She used it for her Books Display Event.

Here is the TABLE TOP/ Table Cloth:

NOVICE Quilt B L O C K

Posted on

As a Novice/Beginner of quillting I’m  preparing, and making Quilt Blocks for a Scrappy Quilt. It is going to be a while completing this quilt, due to not having enough scraps of fabrics. I’m a Believer of God, and He is going to make this possible according to His WILL.

NEW SEATING

Posted on

Chair Covers can be expensive depending on fabric type, style, and brand. I decided to take the chance to create something for my own. I went out looking for fabric that could be use all year round, and sponge for the seat. The making began without a pattern by measuring the length, and the width of the chair back, and the same for the seat. I began the process by folding the fabric, marking the measurements on the fabric, and cutting the shape out.

Here is my Surprise:

What are your thoughts? Thank you in advance.

From POCKET to POCKETBOOK

Posted on

I love Jeans, and therefore can’t stop Recycling them. I cut out one pocket from an old pair of Jeans and turned it into a small Pocketbook. The Cotton Print  Trimming was all added by hand along with the closure, and handle. I attached two belt loops by machine sewing in the back to be worn around the waist also. Let me know your thoughts. Thank you in advance.

SMALL Project

Posted on

A somewhat different, but fun way of creating a Placemat by cutting syrips  of fabrics and weaving them together. This was a test, but I like the finished result. I’m planning to do this again with a much better results.

Here it is!

COTTON and KNIT

Posted on

This was another fun project for me. I thought to make a scarf  other than Wool and Silk, or Cashmere. Out of my Quilting Stash I was able to blend two different Winter Prints, cutting into Rectangular Shapes, sewing them mixed like quilting for one side of the scarf. On the opposite  side of the scarf I decided to use a matching Kint Fabric. I had enough of the Kint left for matching hats. I added an extra finishing touch to the hats by trimming with scraps and yarn.

Here it is!

A better view of the scarf. 100% Cotton Prints.
