Corn Flower Zipper Bag

Corn Flower Zipper Bag

A wonderful neighbor has been ‘getting her exercise’ by mowing our lawn along with hers.  She has mowed around the wild flowers, leaving beautiful sprays of nature’s color as the seasons change.  I took a picture of the cornflower crop and sent it to https://spoonflower.com, a company that creates fabric and paper products from photos.  As a gift for her, this zipper bag was made from twill fabric and lined with quilting fabric and batting, with free-motion quilting. The bag is 8 x 10 inches with a 48″ strap — just the right size for quick errands. She loved it!

Duvet Cover and Bed Skirt

Duvet Cover and Bed Skirt

My beautiful customer gave me permission to share this photo of her bedroom. She is legally blind and she can see the bold, vibrant colors used in decorating her bedroom by her sister. I was commissioned to create the duvet cover and bed skirt for this queen size bed. The work included making 14.5 yards of piping which is used around the color block and completely around the duvet cover. The color block will eventually be decorated with applique art by the customer. I used velcro as the closure at the bottom of the cover. It does not interfere with the decorative effect of the piping.Time to make these two items was about 14 hours. (The duvet was not yet in the cover at the time of this picture.)
