total circles

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!

Happy sewing!

Fabulous! I've been meaning to make a cover for my machine, not that it stands idle for long enough to put one on! I also have heaps of left-over Liberty from a quilt I'm currently doing - perfect! Thanks for the inspiration! I love your quilt :)
