As some of you know, in the past 4 years or so, some significant things have happened in my life. One of those significant life changes is that I have moved closer to family. My sister who has retired (around about the same time I moved), has decided to learn to sew with particular focus to quilting projects. Yeah! is what I say to that!! We have another quilter on the planet and that's just perfect! We quilters do nothing more than enhance the world with our positive productivity. An added bonus is that my sister Alison and I get much more time together with stitch ripping and upside down mistakes that come with beginning to learn and tons of laughter!! I smile just thinking about it.
Today, I decided to feature some of the projects my sister has recently embarked on. She is off to the races as they say and really challenging herself to try some new projects on her own without my help.
I am showing some pictures of her work below:
The above picture is my mother holding a log cabin quilt that Alison gave her for Mothers Day, all pieced basted, machine quilted and bound by Alison all by herself!
Above is a picture of the table runners Alison custom made for her sewing centre without using a pattern!. She wanted something to add colour to her sewing room and to protect her sewing surface.
The above are tote bags Alison has made from the pattern Honeycomb Handbags shown below:
Alison showed these bags to a quilt shop in her area recently and has been asked to teach a class, she is so organized and creative that she will do a fantastic job!
Above is another picture of a ruler bag Alison has made with fabric and vinyl (no pattern). Most of these items she has made in the last few weeks. WOW is all I can say!
I hope all you beginners out there are inspired! You can do this too!
A mere 3 years ago Alison sewed on her sewing machine for the first time.
She has come a long way with her quilting and sewing skills! Way to go Alison!!
Alison has also agreed to do some guest feature blog writing for me as well in the near future.
Stay tuned !
Happy Monday! Enjoy this gorgeous weather!😊
