There were a few new patterns that caught my fancy when I saw them in the photos from Spring Quilt Market. I ordered and two arrived this week. First,
This pattern is called Picnic Rollup. It has ties incorporated into the edges so you can roll it up and tie to secure. It also has pockets in the corners to put rocks to hold the quilt down. However, I think I will be adapting the pattern to be a bed quilt. The pattern is from Thimble Blossoms.
I got my start sewing with garment construction (junior high school home economics) but rarely make clothing for myself anymore. But after I saw photos of Sew Serendipity's booth, I knew that was about to change!
This pattern is called the Emaline Skirt. I have several brown tops and sweaters that used to go with pants and skirts that I have "ungrown." (What do you call it when you get too small for for your clothes?) So I'll be looking for some fabric to make into this skirt and wear later in the summer.
