I also finished a sewing machine cover for my partner in the FLiRTS swap on Flickr. I made it reversible so she can change up the look if she wants.
|She hasn't received it yet so I'm not showing the embroidery.|
Typically we are really busy at work in the spring so I don't know how much extra time I will have but I do have 2 goals this month.
1) My Madrona Road challenge for the Modern Quilt Guild. The Des Moines Modern Quilt Guild didn't get our fabrics until later due to a weather delay so they are due on March 21st. I used a lucky star pattern by Elizabeth at Don't Call Me Betsy and made a 6" star. Hopefully this will turn into a quilting kit that will fit my 6" cutting board, trimmer, etc so I can take them to quilting days for the guild.
2) It's my Mom's birthday this month. I would like to make her a tote bag that she can take to the gym with her. I'm thinking this one with different fabric of course. I may do a quilt as you go and make it scrappy. She is coming to visit in May so I really don't have it have it done until then, unless I want to send it to her.

I did get a cute little pouch as a pay it forward from LethargisLass' I absolutely love it and it brightened my day.
That's all for today folks but there will be some exciting news posted on the Des Moines Modern Quilt Guild site in a few days!
