Festival of Scrapiness

I've been away from my sewing machine for a while, and probably will be until May, but I am living vicariously through other fabulous quilters. I hope that you can also take a few minutes to visit the Festival of Scrapiness in order to keep the quilting mojo simmering!

Design Wall Monday

I put together this little clutch to hold my coupons. I was keeping them in an envelope, but it never lasted very long banging around in the black hole known as my purse. This is working out great, I sewed selvages to stiff interfacing, lined it, and added a button and a hair band to keep it closed.

Check out what others are doing at Judy's design wall Monday.

Design Wall Monday

Monday is now a favorite day of the week because of all the inspiration that comes from design wall Monday hosted by Judy L. Quilters from across the States and around the world share what they are working on and it is always a great start to the week. I am working on a small table topper for St. Patrick's Day. It is made of 3D bow-tie blocks, using a paisley shamrock fabric and cotton shirt that came from the stash I inherited from my mom. She wore this shirt for a while, but had cut it up to use in her projects, and it is just what I wanted for this quiltlet! The top is all sewn together, and a border added, but I need to buy some green thread to finish the quilting.
