I finished the letter P at Christmas. It is now JUNE. I ended up with seven different P projects in that time - pajama pants, pillowcases, purses, pleats, Pinwheel, a pair of pink pajamas, and paisley pleats. So I say, it is about time I finished Q! Since I have been wanting to do a quilt, it was really the only option for my Q. But I haven't taken the time in the last five months, and I have projects piling up, so it was time for a different approach.
As soon as I saw this on Pinterest, I knew I wanted to try it. I didn't want to do the complete quilt the way she did, but the method looked easy enough. And it was! String piecing is fun and fast, and I will definitely be doing more in the future.
Trimming my first piece was so cool. A pile of fabric turned into something quilt-like.
And then I got real fancy with my new rotary cutter and more pieces and got this!
But what did it become??
A sewing machine cover!
It has a pocket, inspired by this.
And a slot for the handle, that I learned how to do here.
Simple ties on the side to keep it on.
I used my homemade bias tape for all the edges and along the pocket.
And a view from the back.
Hooray for completing a project, for making my house beautiful, and the letter Q!
