V and Co: what i’ve been doing with my simply color pre-cuts


 so if you haven’t heard simply color pre-cuts are now available at your favorite quilt stores. 🙂

and well now i feel like i can sort of show you a couple of things i’ve been working on with my precuts!

this beautiful dresden plate zippered pouch, is my new little sewing bag. i can take my sewing scissors, hexagons or appliqué pieces. also i can carry my thread. or heck i can just carry it around with nothing in it because it’s so darn cute. i’m thinking i need to make a smaller one to put inside this one…hmmm maybe tomorrow. 🙂

 i used a vintage aqua zipper (i found at good will a whole huge bag full of zippers in all different colors! score!) and the inside lining is simply color lime leaf. i’m a little in love with it. and well that’s not the last of the zippered pouches i’m going to make. 🙂

also i’ve been working on my double wedding ring quilt.

have you ever made one? this is my first one ever.

this one takes a little longer, but i’m excited to keep working on it. i’m hoping that by next march 21, i will have a big enough quilt top for a throw or larger.

why march 21? well that will be my 15th wedding anniversary. WHOOT!


okay back to sewing.

i have quite a few more things to finish here and soon.

we have a review and giveaway of a book next monday, and i want to show you a couple of my thrifting finds, as well as my swell time checking out iowa city’s home ec quilt shop. 🙂

we’ll talk soon! promise.
