Five of a Kind - 2018

I am part of a group of 12 women that celebrate a Christmas gift exchange each year.  Instead of making 12 gifts, we each make fivK, hence the name Five of a kind.  This year I’ve made travel cases.  I started with a pattern by P3 Designs and made a few minor changes.  I changed the size slightly and added the hexies, triangle thread catchers and little pin cushions that can Velcro to the front when the case is open. 


Of course I had to make a sample for myself.  Here’s mine all loaded up.  Everyone won’t get all the goodies like mine, they will have to add their own supplies, but I did include the small cutting mat and a small ruler. 


The little triangle thread catcher folds flat so it can be tucked inside along with the little pin cushion. 


I  love mine and I hope the five that receive one like it too.  The exchange is on Friday the December 7th.  I’ll share the five gift I receive after that

Sweet Lily–Becomes a Wedding Quilt

I just put the finishing touches on this quilt.  It’s been waiting for the binding to get added and I finally finished sewing it on this morning. 

This was a kit I purchased quite a while back from Quiltique in Henderson, NV.  At the time I didn’t have a plan for it but as it turns out I think it is a perfect wedding gift.  I was told they like neutrals with just a little bit of color added so I think this works. 


Here’s a close-up so that you can maybe see the color. 


Soft but pretty I think. It has wool batting so the quilting really shows up nicely.   Here’s the label that Bear’s Quilt Shop added for me and as always they did a wonderful job quilting it for me. 


As you can see the wedding is next weekend.  It is being held at a Vineyard out in Temecula, CA.  We are really looking forward to going. 

Until next time,
