I saw Kitty Pink fabric from the collection Bluebirds on Roses by Elea Lutz for Penny Rose Fabrics from Riley Blake Designs and just loved it! So I bought a yard of it plus a charm pack of the collection.
I used it to make this adorable needle case. The pattern is called “Pins and Needles Book” by Kimberly Kruzich of retro mama. I made the medium version with two slip pockets inside.
I did a little free motion quilting around the roses and straight stitched diagonal lines on the borders. After I did the bit of FMQ, I realized that I had not switched the feed dogs down and I hadn’t even noticed. Hmmm? I’m going to try it on some larger pieces and see what happens. I use a simple Brother domestic machine. Does anyone leave the feed dogs up intentionally when FMQ?
Since I finished the fabulous Barn BOM quilt top, I’m working on some small projects for a change of pace before I complete the quilt. Next small project is a variation included in the needle book pattern, one with zipper pockets, which I think would make a perfect travel jewelry case.
Thank you for visiting and hoping all is well in your corner of the world.
