Farmer's Wife in your Life: Fabric Bucket/Bag

Hi everyone!!

Today I am sharing my accomplishment of making another project inspired by the Farmer's Wife sampler blocks.

 Originally I intend to make a fabric bucket to carry my crochet and embroidery work in progress ...

but once everything finished it turn out to look more like a bag rather than a bucket...
the size of the bag was 14" x 12" x 6" 

 I used 4  6" finished blocks to construct my project.  I used home decor medium-weight sewing fabric.

After having a lot of fun playing with the Farmer's Wife sampler quilt block I am happy with my accomplishment of making something useful for every day!! 

Happy Sewing!!

Hook and Needle Case

Hi everyone!!

My sewing project for this week was this Hook and Needle case.  I am using 2 pieces of  the 6" Farmer'sWife in your Life block sampler which was part of the guideline for the contest  hosted by Sunni at Love Affair with my Brother... blog

I choose Kaleidscope, and some Ruby fabric which I've bought from Sew Lux Fabric and Gifts for this project. The green dotted fabric was a giveaway prize that I've won at Sew it Love it. The finished size of this casing is 7" x 8" . I used velcro as the closure at the side.

and this is how the inside looks like. It can holds about 15 pieces of crochet hooks, sewing needles( I used felt fabric for this), thread and a scissor.


I submit this as part of my entry for the contest...

 Today  I am sharing one of my sewing activity during the weekends... 
Garden Steps blocks... and this is my favorite block.

Basically I have finished sewing all the 12 blocks during the weekends....and I love it all !!

Rose Garden Quilt : New FO

Hi everyone!!

I started my new project in March by cutting some fabric from my scraps bin.  I am using my own block pattern which I created myself. I look at the fabric colors and design before I start creating the blocks.  Since I don't own any software so I sketch the block pattern  using the graph paper.

I name my pattern  as Rose Garden quilt...since I'm using the rose printing cotton fabric as the center. Actually it will not be exactly at the center for all blocks. The rose square will be randomly arrange at different position. This is the first block that I have sewn.  I am excited to see the result of what I've created....hope it turn out beautiful. Size of the center block is 4.5"x4.5"

And these are another two more blocks that I've just finished yesterday...
The finished block size  at 12.5" x 12.5"

Happy Creating and Sewing!!
