Heart

my heart [in fabric]

Here is my newest work, just completed "my heart [in fabric]", which was inspired by my friend Shimon's painting called Fenice Avanti. I used Kona solids for the middle heart area and a Marimekko print for the border.

TOMS DIY Clutch

TOMS Clutch

If you've purchased a pair of TOMS shoes you likely have one of these little bags or flags lying around. I decided that I wanted to make a small clutch out of the bag.

I also used a print I designed myself to feature on the clutch and also printed it myself. I love the combination!

TOMS Clutch

This was a really easy project and I did not use a pattern for this, just made it up as I went along and used some sew-in flexi-firm for the structure. It took roughly an hour from start to finish including printing the fabric.

Star Quilts

DS Quilts Star

My mom taught me a couple years ago how to make a star quilt. I hadn't done it on my own until now. Using Best Press and careful sewing, it makes a quick and easy pattern!

DS Quilts Star

Above, I used prints from DS Quilts, all fabrics I purchased recently from Arizona at Jo-Ann's. They were discounted to 3$ a yard! Of the 50+ yards I bought this is the first project I made :)

Solids Star

The other night the local Fabricland had a sale on their Heritage Quilting cottons so I decided to pair these colors together with some Kona snow and make another star.

Spanish Textile Quilt

I made another Spanish Textile Quilt, this time in Aqua colours. The pattern is by J Michelle Watts. I love piecing this pattern and it is so easy to quilt!

This was a special gift for my brother in law.

I used a Michael Miller print on the back and scrappy binding. You can see a little Tula Pink Birds and Bees and DS Quilts here.

Easy Zip Pouch

I printed my own fabric sheet using images from Heather Ross' PRINTS book. The images printed incredibly detailed and I am so happy with it. Of course I heat set the inks with my iron before sewing.

Heather Ross Mini Quilt

Here is my finished Heather Ross mini quilt made for a friend on twitter. She loves Heather Ross and I love Tula Pink so we both decided to make something for each other. I used just about every print I had on this project and I hope she likes it!

The block is a pattern from the book Modern Patchwork by Elizabeth Hartman. If you don't already own it, please consider buying it. Everything in the book is so beautiful and I have to say this block was so easy.

 And of course I had to make a custom quilt tag for the occasion... using printable images from the dvd that came with Heather Ross' PRINTS book. SO MUCH FUN! I made my own fabric sheets using freezer paper and ran them through my color ink jet and set with high heat. My Epson printer uses pigmented inks which make it ideal for printing on fabric. (be sure to check with your printer/ink manufacturer)
