Any Suggestions !!!!!!

Hello every one ,i bought the charm packs in the sales as you do now i wonder if anyone could suggest a for a christmas quilt  i did think wonky stars !!  i want to show case the fabrics as they are so cute .

these are my blocks for me this month the one on the left is jan lucky stars BOM i will show you the blocks as they come in they are looking good on flickr Here

Think loads are doing these pouches you need to read and read again i must admit i almost didnt do it but i will make it bigger next time as you can see the grey zip is a little wonky i also want to say that i have used my fabrics form Cindy and Sarah .

the walking foot i got because mine has not got a hole for a guide  hope it works ok !!
Started looking for a new machine i want something to sew through thick layers or seams mine struggles over lots of seams when i have done paper piecing  we seem to sew on the spot quite a bit this is the machine i am thinking about Here i have found a Janome Horizon 7700 ex demo at a really good price too but ...........can i afford it !! i have been reading reviews for both until my mind is boggling

12 inch zips from zipit ..........ordered and were here in less than a week fab i intend to use some of them for my bigger triple .
Next weekend i am going to a Sit and Sew with the Yorkshire Modern Quilt Guild just waiting to find out what to bring sounds like fun ,then i have booked to do a day working on half square triangles you end up with a runner at the end looking forward to it will be nice to meet fairly local sewy people and have a good natter will let you know how it is !!!

  1. Sounds like you are well and truly settled in your new home. Hope you make some lovely real life sewing friends. The Cherry Christmas I wouldn't cut up too much for fear of losing some of the patterns. Stars would be great if they had a charm as their centre so you could see all those lovely stockings, birds and laundry.

  2. Here is a cute free pattern for your pretty charms. I love ZipIt too - all those great colors to choose from and great service!

  3. Wonky or not, your pouch is just darling! So glad you gave it a go!
