Sweet Spools Mini Quilt

In keeping with my new KYSS (Keep Your Sewing Simple) policy,

My latest project is a sweet little sewing room mini quilt!

It was a lot of fun strip piecing the sewing machine and spools!

 

And it was a great opportunity to practice free motion quilting on my Janome....

And here is a shot of the top before quilting...


This is my second month participating in the A Lovely Year of Finishes.
It is hosted by these talented ladies.... 
Shanna of Fiber of All Sorts and Melissa from Sew BitterSweet Designs.

My goal for August was to design, quilt and publish the pattern for a sweet sewing room mini quilt.

If you would like to make one of these for yourself or a special friend, the pattern is now available in my Craftsy Pattern shop!


Hope you are having a wonderful time in your sewing room!
