The day arrived for the first fitting of the wedding dress. Of course I had to make the test dress pink, since her very first wedding dress was a pink satin that I made when she was five years old. Since Jessica didn’t want embroidery on her wedding dress, I decided to place some on the test dress.

Bonnie Kimbrough sent this photo of her super-cute Easter table topper, made from Amanda Murphy’s free tutorial. Bonnie’s new to free-motion quilting; This is a nice project for practicing free-motion stitching skills, as the stitches don’t need to follow any particular line or design. Great job, Bonnie!

Mandela is a word of Sanskrit that means circle. I used this as the theme for my granddaughter’s backpack because I wanted her to have something that she could grow with.

I was lucky enough to witness two beautiful weddings for two lovely brides this summer. One was my niece and the other a very special friend’s daughter. A bridal purse seemed like the right thing to make for each of these wonderful young women.

I loved the “sew” buttons they had at BU. I needed a new lunch tote to match my new coffee mug, so I used V6 to do the lettering and the cutwork tool to set up the circles for cutting and stitching.

I designed these pillowcases for a young man I met at the hospital I work at. He was so much like my nephew that I couldn’t help but feel for him.
