The Buggy BarnFriday, August 20, 2010
Don't you just love it when you finish something so sweet that it makes your teeth hurt? I've been walking around the house with this sewing roll placing it here and there....just trying it out to find my favorite place for it. (I'm weird....I know!)
Don't you love the way it rolls up? Just right to tuck into a small sewing box. I used the blue rose print from our newest fabric line, "Wild Rose." It seemed just right for this project. (Wild Rose will be in quilt shops in November. Click on "Wild Rose" to see the prints on Moda's website.)
This is the antique one Barb purchased from Kathy Barrick. I've been studying it trying to figure out the construction. After making several, I finally finished one I love. This looks like it was made about 130 years ago to me. I appreciated the work put into this piece by a woman long ago. I bet she was tickled when hers was done too!
The one made by me is part of the class project at the Buggy Barn. We are getting out our suitcases and traveling to Spokane, WA for a bit of fun with Pam and Janet. (I really have to go and buy a suitcase as I don't have one anymore. I gave mine to my son when he moved to Washington, DC.....so I better get to the store!)
Hope your day is filled with projects that make your heart sing!
