As part of the beginners classes that I taught in November, we made a small project alongside a larger quilt project as a practice piece to give some experience of quilting a quilt sandwich.
Although my students quilted either in straight or curvy lines over their projects, I quilted mine with freemotion pebbles and made it up into a cover for my Kindle. It is such a simple project, and ideal for beginners and good practice to get a feel for quilting through 3 layers. Instead of sewing my binding down by hand, I decided to use a heart embroidery stitch on my Juki, which rarely sees any more action than a straight stitch !!!
I used the modern vintage moda fabric leftovers from the larger beginners project. Although the only button I had at home was this metal floral one, but may change that to a pink or red one when I find another suitable one at my studio. These pouches are so versatile and can be made in all sorts of shapes and sizes to accommodate all kinds of gadgets and gizmos... I have my tens machine in another one that I made years ago, makeup in a third, and am currently making a smaller one for a bank security card machine which I keep losing in my handbag, in nice bright colours which can easily be seen in the depths of my bag. (Well that is the plan at least !!)
This is the larger beginners project that we were working on, and although I have not added borders to mine, as I have the intention to make this a larger quilt at some stage. My ladies added a 5 inch border all around their quilt tops, and they all did a fantastic job.... I hope that they will send me photographs very soon of their finished quilts.
