Mrs. X included a list of sewing ideas for me, her blind swap partner. She implied that she'd be happy with anything, but I know what she really wants - a sewing machine cover! How do I know this? Because that's what I really want!!! Oh, and she did include it on her list and in her inspiration mosaic...
Mrs. X has a style that's light, upbeat and eclectic. Fortunately, I had on hand these lovelies that I think we'll suit her very well:
At first I thought I might make a sewing machine cover like this one, but in the end I decided to mix it up. I'll do the same cover style, which allows for a margin of error in the fit, but a different patchwork pattern. What do you think of this?
Completely fabulous, right!?! It's a quilt made by Rita of Red Pepper Quilts. If you don't know and love her already, I dare you to click. Her work is so precise! She also has a light and upbeat style, so I thought of Red Pepper Quilts when I imagined what Mrs. X would like. This Hour Glass quilt has been one of my Flickr favorites for a while now. What a perfect opportunity to give it a go. And, quite happily, on a small scale. I'll be using Rita's Hour Glass Block Tutorial. Wish me luck!
