  • Stained Glass Block Mini Quilt

    1/4/2017

    By Joanna Marsh

    “If you have a case of the winter blues, this mini quilt will be a great way to brighten up your day! Select your favorite colors (bright colors or gem tones will work wonderfully with this project) along with a fabric in black or dark grey to separate the “glass panels”. You can opt to just make the block without quilting it to be hung in a window that gets lots of light to mimic stained glass. The quarter inch piecing foot will make this project an absolute breeze to complete, so grab your fabrics and get sewing!” – Joanna Marsh of Kustom Kwilts and Designs 

    Create Joanna’s beautiful stained glass mini quilt by following along her directions. It is a beautiful piece to add to your house, office or anywhere else!

    Laced Color Block Dress by Merrick

    Using the Janome Skyline S5 sewing machine, Maker Merrick White of Merrick's Art made this pretty color blocked lace dress for Valentine's Day after seeing a similar Betsey Johnson dress at Nordstrom

    This dress is perfect, unique and feminine for a Valentine's Day date and it also makes for a gorgeous Easter dress in a few months. You could make it in shades of pink and blush, like Merrick did, or in greens, blues, purples or yellows for a more festive spring look.

  • Embroidering with Aurifil and Janome

    1/3/2017

    Monogrammed Oven Mitts by Sew4Home

    For Sew4Home's first project of the New Year, they chose the Flourish Alphabet Monogram that is built into the Janome Memory Craft 500E. The beautiful embroidery was done with three colors of Aurifil 50wt cotton thread. This is a great gift for yourself or a friend who either just got married, moved into a new home or even renovated their kitchen. 

    Sew4Home mentions that the embroidered letter is optional, but the embroidery against the solid color fabric is a wonderful way to customize the look. These great mitts are sufficient for most hot dishes and general baking. Each mitt finishes at approximately 12 1/2" long and 7 1/2" wide.
