Long time posting. What I've been up to. We just got back from a 10 day trip to the Virginia area. We stayed with some old friends & visited the most amazing places. Washington DC, Gettysburg in PA, Harpers Ferry in WV, Antietam National Battlefield in MD, & other fun places. I've never been back east before so this was a real treat.
I'm still sewing & quilting like crazy but have been spending way too much time on Pinterest!
I saw a cute stuffie online made out of an old sweater & decided to make one of my own made out of an old t shirt.
I've recently finished up a ton of my yoyo projects & pattern writing. On Etsy. Just type in Berryvine Designs there & you'll find me. I'm now in English paper piecing madness so those patterns will be coming out shortly :)
These are 1/2" hexis - yikes! Basting stiches showing.
All that is left to do is hand stitch the lining opening where I turned the bag right side out. Good pattern with good directions. It's called "Camille's Bag" by Penny Sturges. I love the way it turned out. I added an additional clip inside for my keys 😃
I saw this cute fabric made up in this purse pattern in a local quilt shop. I love the fabric with all the flowers & newspaper print! I bought a kit but I am substituting the contrast fabrics which were plain yellow & green with some others.
The sections are all fused with batting & ready for quilting before assembly.
Now that I have caught up & published all my yoyo patterns I'm working on a new group of patterns with a different them. Several in the works. Some I am still piecing, some I am quilting, some are still in my head. I love the creative process :)
I recently saw this shirt on Cafepress & wanted to share as I think it is so cute. There I am - the mad quilter with my rotary cutter.
This quilt top reminds me of a game of checkers with all the little squares in the borders. It is a fun quilt with pieced checked borders & yoyos in the center. The wall hanging size quilt measures 36 x 36. It is made up of peachy pink, blue & white florals.
