Anita's Arrowhead

Well, this is as many blocks as are going to be in this quilt. I am mulling over how to finish the quilt. My first idea is to just bind the quilt with black. My second idea is to put a 1" black border around the quilt and then choose one of the fabrics for a four inch border. What do you think?

Bright Stripes

I first saw this quilt pattern on All People Quilt. It was made with darker colors and blacks. Then while I was in Des Moines last year, I saw this one done in whites and brights and purchased the kit. JoAnn Rodgers did an excellent job of quilting. This may be someone's Christmas gift.

The quilt is quick to make. I used jelly rolls by Robert Kaufman both for the colors and the white.

CD Holder

The directions for the notebook cover and the CD holder can be found in One-Yard Wonders by Rebecca Yaker and Patricia Hoskins. Their directions are fairly easy to understand. I added a side to the CD holder (thank you Sue in Texas) so that it would fit into the notebook rings. There is room for 5 CDs on the front and 5 more on the backside of the holder. I like both of the patterns so much that I will have another cover and CD holder finished this weekend. I am using them partially finished for a Software Sampler class and then they will be completed. Both are patterns that will be made into gifts for friends.

Software Sampler Notebook

This is the project for my Software Sampler lesson this month. SS is a lesson using the Bernina Designer Plus software for digitizing.

This is a notebook cover for the CDs and lesson sheets for the month. This was a fun project and I have been waiting for a couple of months to complete it. I should have used a tone on tone for the background to show the designs better. I like this project and have fabric to make one for me.
