Pesach (Passover) Cleaning

With one week to go before Pesach (Passover), there isn't much time for sewing.  I'm finding more dust bunnies than bread crumbs.

A Little Give A Way

It's time for another give a way.  Something old, something new.  Take a peak.
It's Pesach (Passover) time.  A time for cleaning out the house.  That means my sewing room too. I've got to clear out some of the old to make room for the new.
If I get a response, I'll pick a winner next week and get it into the mail ASAP.

When Are Fabric Pieces Too Small?

I have this problem all the time.  I have lots of scraps when making quilts and it's hard to decide on when a piece of fabric is too small to keep.  I'm putting my scraps into Doggie/Cat beds and that's OK with me.  I certainly don't keep pieces smaller than 1 inch.  So now I saw this wonderful guilt on the web.  Someone made this with 1 inch strips which I never keep.  Now I have to rethink what I save.

My Brothers Quilt

My brother has been in the hospital for several months now.  I finally finished a quilt for him.  Thank G-D he is getting better and  I hope he will enjoy this little quilt.  It's a new pattern that I saw on Missouri Star Quilt Co, called Double Slice Layer Cake.

A Duvet Cover

Rina turned her latest quilt into a duvet cover with a little help from Sara.  Sara has made these often and shared some advise with Rina.  The zipper seems to be the most difficult part, but it is worth the effort.  Rina made this for one of her granddaughters.   She now has 2 more to go.

Show & Tell

The ladies brought projects that they have been working on so we can get a closer look.
This is Renee's
Renee is still working on this long time project.  Counted X stitch is a lot of work.
 
Susan finished this.  The quilting on the borders was done by machine and it now is finished.  Susan usually does hand quilting.
 
 
 Her mini quilt is right on the money as the expression goes.
This is another mini quilt that is finished.

Quilts That I Like

If you are like me, you will see pictures of quilts on the internet that you like and may even make someday.  These have no patterns, but I'd like to maybe not make the same quilt, but make something similar.  Do you keep a picture of quilts you like also?
