I wrote this post a couple of days ago,
but Blogger crashed very nicely (!)
and has erased everything written since Wednesday.
I guess that is why we should do back up....
All right, moving on,
this is the project I made for my Mom
with all my circles!
a sewing machine cover.
I was inspired by a quilt seen at
I basically followed their directions,
I just changed the sizes of the circles
since my "quilt" is a little smaller.
I hand appliqued the circles
but machine quilted around them,
I also did it before putting the back,
skipping the need for binding.
I attached ribbons at 5 inch from the tops
and bottoms, before sewing the back.
All the circles are Liberty of London fabrics, all different,
the background is a off-white sateen cotton.
I hope my Mom like it
and if she does not, she can always use
it as a table runner!
