A Busy Bee

I've been busy working on samples for the store. Let me tell you - a clean sewing room makes all the difference in the world for productivity! Plus, I've kept it neat for going on 2 weeks now! That may be a record for me!

This little purse is "Amanda's Purse" made out of charm squares and 2 fat quarters. It was really quick and easy...that is, once I unsewed the upside-down zipper!

This is "Cindy Lou Who" made out of Moda Christmas Past charm squares using a Miss Rosie pattern.

I quilted this quilt last week - the pattern is "Take 5" and we die-cut the block pieces for kits. It has been really selling well - tell folks that it's pre-cut and they can't resist! Audrey sure did like the fabric.....there may be another quilt just like it in her future...

And finally, a project out of my own stash! We are offering a BOM in the shop called "BluFusion", but I wanted to try it in a different color. Can you believe that all the blocks are the same pattern? Color placement really can make a difference in how a block looks. Sure do wish I could spend about a month making things from my own stash. I guess I'll just keep whittling away at it.

That purse is adorable! And I love all of your samples, but I have to say those oranges and russets are my favorite.

Susan, you're killing me! Everything in this post is so pretty, but the Cindy Lou Who in the Christmas Past fabrics is to die for, I've got to make one now.

Wos. You have been a busy girl. Everything looks great. Who makes the Amanda's purse pattern? I just might have to try that. I have been looking for a small purse pattern.
