Sprout and Bloom

Added a couple of pillows to my sofa. Every new place needs new pillows. These are done in 4 tints/shades of orange with an ash gray background.
I love how the quilting makes veins in the leaves!
I have two more versions made, but not quilted yet.  They're on the list.
These have definitely inspired a couple of quilt designs!
Now for the winners.  Who knew there were so many naked sewing machines out there!

Congrats!  If I could find your email, you should have gotten an email from me.  Sharon T and Kim, if you would drop me an email with your contact info, I'll get these little presents in the mail ASAP!  Congratulations!!
The pattern for this cover will be available on the Sew It All TV website when my episode airs.  I'll let you all know.  It's fast and soooo simple.  Hopefully all those machines out there can stop choking on dust and snuggle under cute covers!

Cheryl Arkison said...

Love the vein with the quilting too...

Slightly random question. Don't sewing machines come with covers? Or was that just mine? It isn't pretty, but it's there and in constant use.

I always miss your contests my a couple days!

I keep thinking I need a sewing machine cover, but just haven't gotten around to making one.

I love your pillows. So fresh and a great pop of color.

Side note... I quilted this little baby quilt in a style much the same as you did here on the pillows. Just thought to share.

The quilting gives the plain leaves a life of their own. These simple designs look fantastic!

Those are gorgeous! How do you cut and piece that shape, could you share how you did it? I can almost but not quite figure out the cutting process, and then imagine the piecing was like piecing any curve -- slowly and with pins. Is that right? Thank you!
