Yesterday, I was very productive on my snow day away from work! I finished my first two projects for February. This little quilt is made from a charm pack and a bit of yardage from the Authentic collection from Moda.
I quilted it just like the one in the book.
It's from On The Run by Anka's Treasures.
It's all pieced except for the leaves which
are machine appliqued using fusible web.
It's all quilted and bound and labeled.
I also made Yogi a new pet bed. My friend Suzanne gave all us bee-mates fabric and a dog bed pattern for Christmas. It was a fun pattern to make. I adjusted it a bit so that it would be reversible so both sides could be used.
The top and bottom are pieced and then all pieces including the sides are quilted after ironing fusible batting onto the back. It took 2 large bags of fiberfill to stuff it. I really love the bright primary colors with black.
I just finished stuffing it and hand sewing the opening closed and put it down on the floor in the family room. Yogi snuggled right onto it and hasn't gotten off it yet! :-)
We are expecting a huge snow storm tomorrow into Saturday here in the northern VA/DC area. Our school system has already cancelled school for tomorrow. So, another unexpected day off to sew! hmmmm... what to make? :-)
