Rotaries in Bloom Quilt Blocks

I am making quilt blocks for the block-of-the-month row-by-row mystery/swap, called a Quilter's Garden. Deana from DOD Mystery Blog is designing these blocks. September's blocks were called Good Vibrations and they were cute sewing machine blocks. October's blocks are called Rotaries in Bloom, which are Dresden Plates with a rotary cutter in the center and are just darling! You can purchase Deana's patterns as they come out each month at Craftsy or Etsy. If you join the Mystery Swap like I have, then you get the patterns for free, but you have to swap at least one block and post your finished blocks to her blog each month. If you join now, you will need to purchase the September pattern. You can go to Deana's blog to read all about it, if you want to join in.

I finished my Rotaries in Bloom Blocks right away, but wasn't sure what I was going to do for the "rotary blade". Deana suggests using a metal washer and sewing a black button on top. I was going to to do that, but then I decided to fuse silver lame' on as the blade. Since I know this quilt will be a wall quilt and not be washed, I thought that using lame' would be fine. I just need to stitch the blades in place on my blocks. I photographed these with the lame' and button just sitting on top and not stitched down yet. The block I am trading will not have the blade because I do not know who will be receiving my block yet and whether or not they will be washing their quilt, so I will let the recipient add their own blade to this block. I made 5 blocks and will swap one block.



The block above is the block I will be swapping.

Zippered Pouches in Southwest Fabrics

A couple of weeks ago I went through my fabrics and pulled out all the Southwest fabrics that I had. I decided to make zippered pouches/bags in 4 sizes: small, medium, large and extra large, to use up these Southwestern fabrics that I had. I quilted the fabrics and then cut out the size bags that would fit on the fabric pieces. I took several of these to the consignment shop and when they sell I will be able to take in some more of them.

Fabric Coiled Bowl

I made another fabric coiled bowl using Southwest fabrics, although you can't tell what the fabric looked like before I created the bowl. I should have taken a photo of the fabric before making the bowl, but since I usually use scraps of all kinds to create my bowls, I didn't think of it until just now. I am going to put this one in the consignment shop to sell.

I added a little heart button.

Finnigan the Bunny

My daughter got a bunny from a bunny rescue place last week. She named him Finnigan. Finnigan needed a bed and my daughter asked me if I could make one like one she saw online. So I made him a bed that I lined in a flannel and use a home dec fabric for the outside that I quilted. I added some boning around the opening so that it will stay open for him to hop inside of. I took the bed over to her yesterday. Finnigan jumped on top of the bed, then he went inside it briefly. Since it's not cold yet, I think he prefers to sit on top of it right now.

Catch All Caddy for Sewing

I finally finished my 3rd Catch All Caddy, which I am using for my sewing tools and chose a sewing theme fabric. I just love these caddies to hold my tools and so easy to grab and take with me whether I am going into the living room to do some handwork, or to take with me to a class or a sewing or knitting group. I now have a caddy for my art supplies, my knitting and now my sewing. The Catch All Caddy is a byAnnie design pattern, and of course uses the Soft and Stable also a byAnnie product, which is a great product for making your bags stand up and not flop over.
It looks a bit wonky sitting at a slight slant here, but I assure you it's perfectly straight, lol!!
Slip in side pocket. The pocket at the other end is a zippered pocket.
I placed a things inside the pockets, so you can see the inside and not just my sewing stuff.
