Ready for Summer and Done with Winter Quilt

This weather has been so weird here in Alabama.  One day it’s 40 and then next it’s 70.  I am longing for warmer weather to STAY!

Last year, I got a Moda quilt charm pack called Beach House. I fell in love with the bright colors and of course, the word BEACH was in it. Maybe I was just dreaming of owning a beach or a lake house, but anyway….I digress…I wanted to do a fun, bright quilt to hang in my studio so I created this quilt.  I used a new Pantograph fromQuilting4Fun.

A FREE Pattern for a Laptop Sleeve

I’ve had a 17″ MacBook Pro for over 8 years and this week I finally made a decision to get a new one, especially after IPhoto kept crashing, Google Chrome wasn’t supporting my browser anymore and the battery life was less than 30 minutes.  I love Apple products so I wanted to get another one but realized how expensive they are.  My husband found one on ebay with TechGator that was under a year old. We saved over $400 buying it slightly used.

Today’s personal sewing project: I decided to make a sleeve with this pattern.  It’s FREE and I used fabric I already had lying around the house.
