auction #43 ~ eyeglass case

auction #42 ~ pink liberty epp cushion cover

I made this cushion for Today's Quilter magazine and it made the cover!  I wanted to do a modern twist on the traditional hexagon so I came up with this orientation of hexies and half-hexies with darks & lights.  All the fabrics are lawns, and most are Liberty, with a few Japanese thrown in.  I am including the magazine it was featured in!  Please note this auction is for the cover only, the filler is not included.

Size:  14" x 13"

auction #40 ~ bow ties mini quilt

Here's another Project Simplify mini from 2011.  Fabric is Moda ... forget the collection.  I think this turned out so well!  The large one is still used almost daily by my family as it lives on the big sofa in the tv room.  THis little one is still one of my favourites.  But it needs a new home. :)

auction #39 ~ sweet yellow & red mini

This is the first of 3 mini quilts today.  This one was just a fun little project I made with leftover scraps from a larger quilt that I did long before I started blogging.  It used to hang in my old house, but it doesn't go in my new house.  It's mostly Moda 3 Sisters Gingham Rose and a Little Paris Flea Market with a few others tossed in.  I'm going to remake it in differenct colours ... some day ... ;)

auction #38 ~ lavender hoop embroidery

I was asked by Lecien COSMO to stitch up a little design to help promote their new painted hoops that double as a frame.  I almost hung this one in my powder room.  But it's a little too small.   Maybe you have a little spot for it in your home.

auction #37 ~ "hide the silver" drawstring bag

During the same shopping trip that included the veggie ribbon, I was seduced by this delightful silverware ribbon.  I was on the same embroidery kick, and was inspired by my Downton-Abbey-binge-watching and the hilarious Dowager Countess of Grantham, Violet Crawley.  Oh does that character ever crack me up!

Size:  4.75" x 9"

auction #36 ~ "eat your veggies" drawstring bag

 

Here's a little embroidered bag that I made ... I think 3 years ago?  I bought the cute ribbon on impulse and then when I got home, I decided to replicate the veggies with embroidery, as one does. ;)  It makes me chuckle.  I've just never found the right recipient for it. 

Size:  5.5" x 7"

auction #36 ~ typewriter illustration tote

It is almost physically painful for me to sell this lovely tote.  This was my first project using sewing illustration that I learned from my sweet friend Minki's book.  I love everything about it.  But I need to be perfectly honest with myself, and ruthless with my sewing room organizing.  I know I will never use it.  I can't.  It's too pretty!  But it just feels so wrong to keep it in a box or a cupboard doing nothing.  It really should be used and enjoyed by someone.  I hope that someone is you. xo

auction #35 ~ japanese hexagon flap bag

I thought I would use it.  I used all my absolute favourite silver and taupe japanese prints.  I meant to use it.  But I don't.  Sigh.  Maybe you will use it? :)  (I inserted a piece of kraft-tex in the bottom to keep it from sagging.)

auction #34 ~ mrs. march quilt market tote

Lecien commissioned me to design and make this tote for Quilt Market Spring 2016 to promote the latest Mrs. March collection.  I love making things to show off an entire collection.  This was a really fun project for me.  I had two patchwork designs in mind and I couldn't decide which one I liked better, so I used both ... one on the front and one on the back (it's up to you to decide which is which).  Plus I got to use small pieces. ;)  The handles are faux leather.

Size:  11.5" tall x 13" wide x 3" deep

auction #33 ~ flower sugar zippered pouch set

Well.  In my opinion this is THE perfect gift.  It's pretty, it's in Christmas colours but it's not "Christmas-y", it's useful, it's practical, it's THREE gifts in ONE ... can't get any better than that. :)  I made this as a prototype for my Amy's Pretty Pockets pattern.

Sizes:  Large = 10.25" x 7", medium = 8.5" x 5.5", small = 6.25" x 4"

auction #32 ~ epp iPad mini zippered case II

Here's the second version of the iPad case I designed for Love Patchwork & Quilting that they liked.  I used Lecien's Minny Muu.  So cute.  I love all those little prints.  And the grey solid give it a more modern edge.  The patchwork is all hand-pieced and hand quilted.

auction #24 ~ triangle drawstring bag

This is another prototype for Love Patchwork & Quilting.  I made this version first because I love the bows print.  But then I realized that there wasn't enough contrast between the two fabrics for a magazine photo (below is the actual magazine pix).  But of course it's MY personal favourite of the three ...  (Please note that this one does NOT have pompoms.)

This auction is for the first bag shown only (not the two in the photo above).
