Quilt Market with Therm O Web


Although I’ve never considered myself much of a sewer, I’ve long had a secret love affair with stitching and fabrics. So when I was asked to create a few projects for the International Quilt Market last month using designer Pat Sloan’s newly released line of fabrics for Moda, Bobbins and Bits……well, I was more than a little excited.


Bobbins and Bits is such a bright and happy fabric collection, filled with vivid summer colors and prints. LOVE it! Could not wait to try out those adorable Jelly Roll strips and put my rudimentary sewing skills into play on this fun iPad cover.


The base of my cover is heavy wool felt, and I made a happy little home-sweet-home scene to go on top. Used a combo of machine and hand-stitching to create the house and garden, and even did a bit of traditional quilt stitching, since this was the Quilt Market for goodness sake!


The house is a bit of a rickety thing. Opposite to a true quilter, I just free-cut all the pieces without guidelines or measuring, letting my inner creative spirit flow. I stuffed the roof with a bit of polyfill for dimension. All the little applique pieces are easily held in place with the help of Therm O Web’s fusible fleece and interfacing.

I have the full tutorial up on the Therm O Web blog, in case you’re interested in learning more. Therm O Web is offering a lovely giveaway of sewing and quilting products for one lucky winner, too.

Today is a big, big day for us, my friends. My son will be walking down the aisle, accepting his diploma this afternoon. Time for me to get the tissue handy!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a wonderful day!
