Cindy’s Creations

The list continues to grow but I’m having loads of fun. While at the LQS I purchased the book Sleepy Acres by Amy Bradley Designs. I haven’t started this quilt and I won’t for a while, I must finish Jon’s before I start another quilt for Nikolas.

I also purchased a circular sewing attachment. Dee Ann gave me a quick demo and I can’t wait to quilt something using this attachment.

The attachment didn’t cost quite as much as a walking foot and I’m hoping it will add some quilting interest to my quilts, since I seem to be freemotion quilting challeneged.

I also joined a challenge on a machine applique’ group I belong to and a swap all on the same day. lol I’m looking forward to both.

The group owner kept reading about all the quilts being made and give to others so she challenged us to make something for ourself. The rules were simple, background must be birthstone color, no bigger than a fat qtr, must have birth month flower on it and be finished by June 30, ’08. I purchased Batiks. Do you know how hard it is to cut Batiks? My birthstone is blue sapphire and the flower is an Aster. When I saw the flower I started to worry. lol After finding a coloring page of an Aster, I took it to Staples and had it blown up and while I was tracing the flower on fusible I figured out how to make the flower without it taking me years.

1. 100% quality cotton – prewash is recommended
2. No larger than 20″ x 20″ — 51 cm x 51 cm

After signing up for this swap, I grabbed my little quilts book and started drooling. I can’t wait to get the details of my person so I can get started. This quilt must be finished and in the mail by May 31st.

    Hey Cindy I am the the other machine Applique list owner. I was web browsing and found your blog. Looks great. I just bought the same circular atachement for my Kenmore but haven’t used it yet. Have you used yours yet?
