Fabric already working

Yesterday, after I finished the Purse.  I got my handy dandy GoBaby cutter out and got busy.  I got my pieces cut for a new baby quilt.  Perhaps, today I can get them coordinated and ready to put the top together.  I will use Hean n Bond Lite to hold the little flowers down, then quilt them all down when I quilt the piece.  How much fun is this, everyone needs a GoBaby!!!!

Purse made with Texture Magic

I purchased this fabric last year from Savage Quilter in Oklahoma City.  It came as a panel, I thought it was pretty, maybe make a wall hanging, wasn't sure.  One day I was at the Quilt Sampler shop in Tulsa, and saw a purse that had been made with a product called TEXTUE MAGIC,  IDEA, I thought oh my gosh, that fabric I bought in OK City would be perfect for that.  So I purchase a small piece of it, I think it's 22.00 a yard (really not bad because you use a small piece of it) anyway, I came home and stitch the Hydrangia flower, and it shrivled up nicely, cut I thought oh gosh how would you sew this to something else, so I went back up there, the ladies are so nice to help you with things.  Anyway, realized I needed to stitche to the outer edges and it would work out just fine.  So came home and sewed the other flower, the red one.  Came out great.  I have been wanting to turn it into something, so Purse came to mind.  Wallah, here is the results.  I LOVE IT, of course, I had to add some bling.....so a few crystals.  I am so excited, I can actually use the purse.  It was so much fun, I think I may try some TEXTURE MAGIC on a quilt sometime, with big flowers.  How wild would that be
What you do is you stitch the TEXTURE MAGIC on your fabric, I meandered it, then you use a steam iron to shirnk it up, works like magic.  I'm sure your local shop would have it.

new project, great fabrics, I just couldn't resist

Yes, I know I have a sickness, but lovn' it

Baby Let's Polka (dot)

Just finished this quilt, pattern by Missour Quilt Co. Youtube.  It's a tube quilt, loved making it.  Going for a wedding gift.  I just had to name it "Baby Let's Polka (dot).....so many dots, so little time.  I love my new Pfaff 4.0 Quilting Expression machine, everyone should buy one.  Makes machine quilting a breeze.
