modern quilt guild pincushion swap


The Austin Modern Quilt Guild is going to swap pincushions with several other chapters across the United States and Canada, so I decided to contribute two of my Zelma cuff pincushions!  Since I didn’t have any of the restrictions that I had at Moda Bakeshop, I played around with materials.  The turquoise is made from fabric I had printed. The strap is made of suede with silver Jones Tones foil over top & I am so happy about how it came out!!  But it’s always tough trying to get your sewing machine used to a different material than it’s used to handling & I lost steam battling with Rory.  So, the second cuff doesn’t have a felt lining because I couldn’t make myself sew one on it. 😦


I think they turned out very pretty & I’m going to be sad to see them go…

This is going to be my first entry called Papercut

the quiltcon 6

In a fit of irrational thinking, I have decided to enter not just one, but SIX quilts in QuiltCon. The deadline is November 30th, so I have my work cut out for me!! Three of them should be familiar to y’all if you’ve perused my blog before. The other three are either currently stewing in mah brains, saved & ready for action inside Adobe Illustrator, or lying in pieces on my cutting table. So, let’s all say a brief prayer for my sanity, pop open a bottle of Aleve, & get ready for the most quilty November ever!!! Ai Ai Ai! <– That was my battle cry. Lol
