Here's a close-up view of my most recent finish. Fabric: Ruby...just love it! Half-square triangles previously seen here. What is it?
Introducing "Just Swell!" I have needed to make a cover for my Janome for quite a while...it's actually been on the "to-do" list for a couple of years. When I saw Camille's cute sewing machine cover at market I knew I had to make one.
I did all the straight line quilting exactly as suggested in the pattern. My machine is taller and wider than Camille's, but the pattern has a simple formula for making the cover fit your machine--the math worked out perfectly. The only thing I might have done differently would be to make the ties about an inch longer than suggested--since my machine was a bit wider I think I needed longer ties (but you can see from the photo above that I was still able to tie a cute bow on each side).
And finally...for the winner of my Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway...wow--there were 708 comments! Thanks so much to everyone who entered and shared their thoughts on favorite fabrics! Congratulations Dawn...I've sent you an e-mail...and as soon as I get your mailing address a box of goodies will be on it's way to you! Have a great rest of the weekend everyone!
