Oh, Madame Samm, you really know how to make cool buttons for these blog hops.
That lady looks like how I felt when I saw Studio E's Rush Hour fabric...
I was instantly crazy in love with it and wanted to rush off to sew something!
I knew as soon as I saw that sweet bundle of Rush Hour fabric that I was going to use a pattern by
Daniela Stout called "Touchstone." It was perfect to show off these gorgeous fabrics and the design
totally made me think it looked like city blocks and a place to get caught in rush hour traffic.
It's Rush Hour!
This quilt is about 89" x 101" and was quilted by Quilted Works.
The back of the quilt is a black cotton sateen that is SO luxurious!
If you don't know what it is, you are just a baby and have only used computers to type things.
This little beauty was helpful in writing all those essays and doing homework when I was in school.
Sorry, hahaha, hysterically laughing here...I wasn't a big fan of school or homework, so maybe this was
mostly used for writing letters to my grandmother or the Monkees (I was a huge fan in the olden days.)
Look, it still has a ribbon in it!
I love the patterns By Annie and found one that was meant for an iPad or reader and enlarged it a bit.
That typewriter is way too big for this handy case, but my laptop fits perfectly inside and
Annie's Soft and Stable gives it some added protection in my suitcase when I travel.
It looks so good in the Rush Hour fabric!
The zippered pocket on the back stores my mouse and cords.
The Rush Hour Blog Hop wasn't just limited to Studio E's Rush Hour fabric, so I also made a little
girl quilt using red, black, and white. My Accuquilt came in handy to cut some small tumblers using
Riley Blake black and white gingham. I also used the gingham on the binding with some red piping.
I did some hand embroidery on it using "Balloon Girl" from Down Grapevine Lane
and sent extra balloons flying up, up and away.
My friend, Barbara, did the quilting...it turned out just beautiful!
Of course, there's a giveaway!
By Annie recently had the best kind of sale...buy one, get one free of her Soft and Stable, so I get one
