 It is another snow/sew day today and I have a little of this and that to show you.  Above is my bursting heart that I first talked about here.  It outgrew the pillow form so I made it into a table topper.  Today, I finished the binding.
Yesterday I posted about how to make a pressing bar.  I had a reader write and ask what it was for.  I’m so sorry I didn’t explain it further.  I’ve posted the picture above to show you how I use the bar to press open the seams on my binding.  Hope this clears things up.
Above is a pillowcase that Misti made.  She picked up the kit at the shop.  I love these fabrics.  Thanks for sending the picture Misti.
And this is Moe who insists on sitting on my cutting table and watching me work.  She’s such good company. 

  • Bumble Beans has a nice tutorial for making curved geese.  Check it out.
Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

Your bursting heart turned out great - love it! Moe looks like a very good quilt tester and supervisor. I'm glad to know you have such good "help."
