New Designs for a New Age....

I'm trying my hand @ designing clothes. So far, I really like the denim skirt I've been working on.

One friend suggested I try making a blazer with a hoodie.

So, I'd have yo make one of these:
And add a hood to it...He says he knows a bunch of girls who'd wear it.

We'll see how this goes.

Nato's Halloween Quilt

I made this quilt top last year, here it is pinned, folded, & waiting to be hand-tied.

I just finished pinning it!! My fingers are SO sore, but it's FINALLY done!!

My FNSI spoils...

This is my New Home sewing machine. It is dated from 1941-1953, and it is awesome.
I use it for most of my sewing.
The following 3 pics are AFTER pics.

These are the new Muslin strips for the quilt frame ends.
The legs after being wiped down and let dry overnight.

That sheet on the right is made out of Muslin, and anything I can find online says that you attach Muslin to the quilt frame to be pinned to later.

All pictures to follow after are BEFORE shots:

Same quilt...with appliques..

I think I'm gonna do both names on the back...the front is too busy & the letters get lost.

Jem's quilt design...

What do you think?

(The green isn't part of the quilt.)
I plan on doing 2 borders around the edge...and I'll also be adding her first name onto the front, and her last name onto the back.
