Hexies and EPP - continued

This is one of the latest baby quilts I made

























































Somehow I thought the flowers would stand out more, but I am happy with the result.

Sashiko purse

Ok, it is not a huge piece of work, but a nice size to try some sashiko stitching.

















The thing I like best about it are the blue bobbits on the purse frame...
I have recently been getting into making purses, but for me, there are more rewarding purses to make than this. Anyway, it is finished and I wanted to share it with you.


Pouches

I am still sewing little things and bags... here are the pouches I finished last week:

Upcycled

I was given a jacket a while ago and I really liked the fabric, but the fit was awful... so here it is in another shape. I decided I am going to use the case as a toilet bag as it is rather small.
You can find the pattern here....






Zitronenfalter pattern

I received a really nice inquiry lately about the pattern of my Zitronenfalter quilt, so I decided to share it with you. It is so simple, you will be surprised you did not catch it by yourself. Here is a picture of the finished quilt:





















It is a single block quilt, here comes the block pattern:

















And here you can see that the single block is just twisted by 90 degrees:























It is really hard to discover the pattern by just looking at the quilt. I have no idea if this has been shared by anyone else before, I have discovered it using EQ7.

I used the symmetry functionality in EQ7 (Electric Quilt). I am not sponsored by EQ, I am really convinced that this program saves me so much time and gives me so much inspiration, it is worth the money and investing some time in learning it. OK, initially I was a little overwhelmed with all those functionalities. But if you are not complete computer illiterate, you can discover the program by just clicking around. Well, ok, most of it at least. The things you cannot find out yourself, you can find on the internet, there are a lot of good help tutorials around.

Talk to you soon

In preparation

.. for the next meeting of Bee Germany in May, I needed a little case or bag to carry my rotary cutter, needles, pincushion etc. In my search for a pattern, I came across this tutorial by thezenofmaking which I changed a little and this is the result:



















It has a front pouch and two inner compartments, is very easy to make (excellent tutorial!) and really stable. Give it a try, even as a beginner.
