Monday Mixed Bag

My Super Fly arrived!!! Sizzling Hot Sis Boom!!!
Jennifer Paganelli designs such great fabric!! Lauralee Zebra stripes come in 6 awesome colours!!! I'm so excited about these! I want to use them for everything, quilts, skirts, curtains, cushions, I'd wall paper the house with them if I could!!  

These next big bold prints are called Jane. They would make the best border prints and I'm tempted to play around with fussy cutting. 

I've also received my copy of Generation Q magazine. This is the first edition of a magazine that has grown from the Generation Q blog. A quick flip through shows lots of interesting articles and funky, modern quilt patterns, one of which is by my talented friend Melissa Peda. If you pop over to see her at 100 Billion Stars  you can see the blog tour dates for Generation Q magazine and Jane Sassaman's latest book, Patchwork Sassaman Style. 

Just to prove I've been sewing here's an iPad cover I made a little while ago...
Flip the lid...
And here's the back...

My sewing machine is off to be serviced in the morning but I'll keep busy by appliquing my Square Pegs in Round Holes circles.
I'm hoping I have them all done before my machine is ready in 2 weeks. Do you think I can?

Love the iPad cover! The vintage dresses are wonderful! I bet you can have all those circles completed! Ready...set...go! I hope you are turning on some sunny weather for my visit this week?!

Mary said...

The iPad cover is adorable! I love the dresses and the text! Great Jennifer P fabric!!! You are so right the Jane fabric would be fun to fussy cut. Now, get busy with that applique!

OH, isn't it hard to drop of the machine? Even if I haven't been sewing, its hard.
Love those stripey prints, they are just great and would add so much movement to any quilt.
Hey, I know (and love) that Ipod cover! :)
Enjoy appliqueing your squares and pegs - love it Rachael!! the light and dark background borders are so unique and add so much to this.

Your Ipad cover is so cool, I love the typewriter and of course those lovely vintage ladies. The recipient is a lucky birthday girl!
I think that zebra fabric is great in all those different colors.
I am getting that magazine!

I love your quilt! Lovely colors. I did not realize that it was being appliqued.
Your fabric stash must be to die for :0 Beautiful prints.

Of course you can...YOU GO GIRL!
Your ipod cover is pretty cool Rachael xo

Two weeks?! Yikes. Seems like such a long time to go without a sewing fix. I'm sure you'll do just fine filling the days with handwork.

I played with Super Fly all weekend--fussy cutting and getting inspired for even more Sis Boom projects. Jennifer is such an enabler, isn't her? The best kind, of course.

"Square Pegs in Round Holes" looks fabulous! I'm sure you'll get it done soon. Have fun playing with those beautiful new fabrics!

Katy Cameron said...

GMTA, I have most of the fabrics in your iPad cover ;o) Enjoy all your new goodies :o)

Shay said...

Miss P would love the superfly fabric. That girl is dotty for anything that resembles zebra stripes.

Im about to be machineless too...we can go through withdrawal together.

Sasha said...

Gorgeous fabrics!!! I think some fussy cutting with the Jane prints would be perfect!!! I think you can finish the circles before you get your machine back!!! You can do it!!! Plus I want to see them all finished up lol!!! I just think they look so great =D

Don't think we'd miss thoes zebra's at the water hole. The vintage sewing pattern fabric is so my youth. Love the iPad cover. The type writer is the color of the Hermes we shipped in the trunk when we migrated. LOL
