This pair of purses is only one of Deanna's finished projects.
The pair of hexagon purses are from Brigitte Giblin - digital patterns found HERE. Deanna modified the tops to work with readily available metal purse frames. The top shape isn't exactly like the pattern.
Wonderful fussy cutting and flawless assembly! The hexagons are hand pieced and the bag portion is hand stitched to the purse frame.
They look great with the toile print chair.
So far she hasn't used the purses. She's enjoying them on her sewing room shelf.
Another great finish Deanna shared is this basket quilt made from 4" basket blocks.
Fun fabric combinations.
Started in a Jo Morton club
We admired her beautiful machine quilting.
The alternate blocks have delicate feathered wreaths. Yes, that's right - feathered wreaths to fit in a 4" alternate block! They are perfectly executed.
The quilt has not been washed. I love it as is! She is planning to wash and dry it to give it even more texture.
I should have taken notes - she used an invisible poly YLI thread for the wreaths. The border stipple is stitched with cotton YLI.
The Honeybee quilt has a longer story I will share in detail in a future post. Do you like it?
With permission of the owner of the antique top, our small group reproduced this queen size quilt. We hand appliqued all 972 leaves, using a beautiful variety of reproduction fabrics.
The quilt will be auctioned at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum live auction in May.
It is a beautiful quilt!!
It was a day filled with inspiring projects.
