I love Tablerunners

This tablerunner is a pattern called "Little Charmers III".  There are 3 patterns in the pamphlet.  I used Moda Charm Squares "Objects of Desire" and the fabrics from the same line for the background and backing.  It is very bright and summery.  I tried to do some free motion quilting but I am not very good at it.  I really think that I have to practice some more.  I usually use some of my fancy patterns on my Babylock Quilters Choice sewing machine instead of free motion quilting but this time I thought I would try something different.

This new bag is called a dandy bag from Dandelion Quilts.  Her site is  It is made a lot like the other tote bags that I make except that it has a nice band to separate the top band from the bottom of the bag.  I also put a few stitches in the bottom of the bag to hold the lining down so that it does not pull out of the bag.  It is a little tricky but it can be done with care.

Amanda's Purse

I made another purse the other day.  It is a This & That pattern called Amanda's Purse.  I made it from Moda Frolic charm squares with matching fabric for the handles and the lining.  If I made it again I would make it longer but not as wide.  I also added inside pockets.  A purse had to have pockets, don't you agree.
