Mardi Gras Purse

Today, I finished a purse that I have been paid to make! It will go out in the mail tomorrow! When I made mine (the only other one like it), I never knew that people everywhere would be asking where I got it!

I'm very proud of the way that this one came out and it didnt take me 6 hours this time! Well, it did, but that's because I kept running into walls with the sewing machine!

I think I'm going to work on something else now! Maybe Sleep! ~~Jenny

I haven't blogged before, but it seems that it's the new thing these days, so why not! I finally took a little time to take a few pics of the quilts that I've made this far.. or at least the ones that are completely finished. There are two that I don't have pics of... one has already been given away and the other is still being quilted!
My Nine Patch
This was the second thing that I made after I got my machine. It's alot-a bit- off, but that's okay, because I have got better since then! I am proud of this 9 patch and it is on a table in my living room!

Grandma Frankie's Braids

"Grandma Frankie's Braids" was made from scraps that I received after my Cousin's Gandma passed away. She was a lifetime quilter and always made a quilt for each new child that was born (plus countless others). I figured that since this baby wouldn't get a "Grandma Frankie Blanket" so what better way to use the scraps... I made her a quilt with her Great Grandmother's scraps?? It is made so that it will grow with her and is big enough so that she can use it for a llong time to come! It was machine pieced and then hand quilted by my Mom!

"Let's Go Shopping"

This quilt is for my shopping buddy! She's also my best girl-friend! The title fits it well as the fabric has images of ladies shopping, purses, shoes and even flip flops... it has one quote in the middle of it... "Gone Shopping" ... enough said! I think that this quilt will fit the recipient perfectly. It's machine pieced and quilted. It's perfect for the couch and when taking a nap! I even have enough of this fabric left over to make one for myself!

.... off to sew or go to sleep... dont know which yet!!! ~~Jenny
