P√Ętisserie Jelly Roll Race

I made another Jelly Roll Race quilt.  I really liked making this quilt the first time and I thought it would be a good quilt to practice some FMQ with the long arm.

I sewed the top during the summer and I quilted it a couple of weeks ago.

I did loops and wavy lines.  So simple yet so effective, in my opinion.

I love the colours in this fabric line.  

This quilt is also for sale in my Etsy shop but it goes so well in my house, I don't think I would be too sad if nobody bought it and it stayed a little longer...

Happy Thanksgiving Weekend to all of my Canadian friends!!

Big Block Quilt

Remember a couple of weeks ago when I was starting to learn the ropes on the long arm machine?  Well I finally went out with my husband and got some photos of the quilt!

This quilt was a UFO from 4 years ago... I think...

Just a simple big block quilt using 8" squares.

It was a good size to start practicing the pantographs on the long arm.

I am really happy with this finish.  It's a great lap quilt with a flannel back, perfect for snuggling up with on a cool fall day.

This quilt is now for sale in my Etsy shop.

Kobo cases

My parents each got a Kobo e-reader early this summer. My mom asked me to make them each a quilted case for them. That way they won't get all scratched up in their bags when they head to Florida this winter.

I made them yesterday afternoon. It didn't take me long. I borrowed my mom's kobo to take measurements. I quilted them so they would have an extra layer of protection with the batting.

They were quite happy with them.
