Finish It Up 2013

I thought I would share today some of my recent finishes.  I have been taking some time to work on lots of different projects.  I've been in a kind of "do what moves you" kind of mood with my sewing lately.  I have really enjoyed making some free projects from around the web. Please join me at the end of this post in my first ever link up party!

First up is a quilt top using Tim Holtz's Eclectic Elements fabric by Coats & Clark.  The pattern is "Time Flies" quilt.  You can find the post and instructions here. It was super easy and super quick to complete. 

I also made a pouch and a purse from this fabric.  The pouch is a "Susie Zippered Pouch" pattern by Pattydoo.  This video tutorial is available on You Tube.  The purse is a larger version of the pouch with a shoulder strap attached. 

I made another pouch with my Ruby scraps.

Then I decided to take a block I made a while back and sew up another pouch.  I am a little addicted to pouches lately.

I then made a "Half Tote" using fat quarters of Honeysweet.  I just love the colors in this line.  I found the pattern for this bag here.

I also made some Dresden plates using Carnaby Street by Pat Bravo.

Last but not least of my news is that a friend from work gave me a vintage Singer 185k sewing machine.  It runs like a dream.  I hope to put it to good use. Isn't she a beauty? I love her so much!

I am also gearing up for Fall Quilt Festival here in Houston.  I am so excited to be off work that whole weekend.  Let me know if you will be there.  I would love to meet you.  I really wish I was going to market too, but I don't have a business at this time.  Maybe next year.
