Sewing Summit!!!!!

It's here!!!  I am so excited!!!!  The next three days will be spent learning, laughing, and loving every minute.  I am just so excited to finally get to meet so many of my "virtual" friends. I wish I could stay up late with them all at the hotel but I will be going back to my kiddo's each night that are staying with there Grandma and Grandpa.  (And yes, the kids are super excited about that!!)


So, I figured since the Sewing Summit starts today it might be a fun day to show what I made for it.  Now, this is nothing in comparison as to what some of these ladies did before hand, but considering my last few weeks, I am feeling pretty good about getting these little things done.

First,  I have just about finished up the 3 quilts that I will be giving to Kate for the 100 Quilts for Kids Campaign. I just have to attach the bindings which I will be doing either at the conference or in the evenings :)


Second, I made this little name badge.  I decided to go for simple and clean and so I did some freezer paper printing and then just added a quick border.  I am super happy with how it turned out and more importantly how quickly I was able to put it together.



Third, I had this little bag made just for the Sewing Summit.  Now I say "I had this bag made" because I didn't make it.  A few weeks ago I was telling my mother that I wanted to make a bag for the Summit.  I really wanted to use my Aviary 2 fat quarters that I had stashed away for something special.  So that was the plan, however I was a bit concerned because A) Time Constrains and B) I don't do 3-D Sewing very well.  So, being the wonderful mother she is, she offered to turn my fat quarters into this amazing purse!!!  Isn't she the greatest!!  Seriously, I love you mom!!!!




So I got my name badge and my purse and I am ready to go!!!  First stop is the Shop Hop!!!  This is going to be so much fun!!!
Pin It!
