First up, Some iPad covers - After a false start with my first attempt, I managed to get the sizing right second time around and these actually do fit i-Pads in them! I played around with Velcro and zip fastening options. Feedback from James, whilst generally positive, did suggest double layers of batting next time (he's getting into the groove of this sewing lark!)
Then, a zippy pouch for Mothers day. I made this with the phone tucked into my shoulder catching up with the lady in a cupboard in Shetland, whilst she stitched and then unpicked some piecing - it's amazing neither of us sewed through our fingers! (Message for Mum: multi-tasking doesn't make it any less of a gift!)
Two cushions - I pieced the front of the first one yonks ago, it's taken me ages to getting around to finishing it off!
Some extra little zippy purses
A baby quilt - I tried to make this unisex, but rather than go rainbow, I opted for an alternative colour scheme. I think I was thinking log cabin, but kept changing my mind and ended up with these quarter log cabin blocks...
which I finally laid out in alternate directions, and added a double border and scrappy binding to create a quilt measuring about 30" x 40". It's for sale in the shop at the moment, and is backed in purple fleece and quilted in a free-style wavy line pattern that is my new favourite "easy to do" quilting design!
(sorry for the appalling picture, forgot to get a proper shot so had to make do with a snap outside the shop!)
And finally, a lovely friend of mine, Zoe, whom I haven't seen for a few months, had a little boy a couple of weeks ago. His name is Monty and I made this changing mat for him (well, more for his mum actually, although he may appreciate the fleecy lining!).
I followed this pattern but added improv-piecing to the exterior . The pictures don't show the fabric covered button I need to add before sending it on it's way to it's new owner :). Welcome to the world, Monty!
