The presents have been opened, the carols have been sung, and the cookies have been eaten (like, in their entirety, before our holiday guests even arrived!). But my dining room is still a dining room and won’t see any sewing for a few more days. So I present to you today some highlights from Beauties Pageants past ...
Tubak, of Den syende himmel, followed a tutorial on the Bernina site to make this adorable kitty pouch. The zigzag eyes are her own addition to the pattern, and they’re brilliant. It’s impossible to look at pictures of her project without smiling!
As a mama to two boys, I flipped over Janine’s Chicago skyline baby quilt. Check out her blog, Quilts from the Little House, for lots more pictures and a blow-by-blow description of her creative process.
And Allison, at New Every Morning Patchwork and Quilting, revealed her Modern Chains. This pattern appears in a recent issue of Quilt Now, and it features everything I love in a modern quilt—an oversize, off-center design with negative space. Beautiful!
If you’ve been able to tear yourself away from holiday revelry enough to finish something, we want to know about it. Link up below!
Although I love the low-key days we’ve had at From Bolt to Beauty world headquarters this past week, it’s rare for me to go more than a few days without sewing. I miss the hum of my machine and the feel of fabric beneath my fingers. Here’s hoping the new year includes a lot of sewing and quilting. : )
