Shopkins Quilt

Do you know what Shopkins are?! They are 1" high collectible plastic figures based on supermarket items, with faces and names. There are a lot of them for children to collect and play supermarket with. 
     Regina made this adorable Shopkins quilt for a little girl's birthday.

Square Peg Mini Quilt

I made another mini for our quilt gallery! The pattern is "Square Peg Miniature Quilt" from the book, "A Piece of Cake" by Peta Peace of She Quilts A Lot blog.
The quilts in this book are made from layer cakes. But this mini quilt is made from a 2 1/2" Candy Charm pack and finishes 15" square. (There's a larger version that uses a layer cake.)

Christmas Table Runner 🏃 Finish

Jennifer, of The Inquiring Quilter blog, posted this free table runner 🏃 pattern as her stop on the "12 Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop". You can find the table runner pattern on her blog, along with a full size quilt pattern now, The Inquiring Quilter.
I custom quilted mine with swirls, point-to-point quilting, meandering and figure 8 quilting. But with all that sparkle and pattern going on the stitches aren't very visible:

50 Needle Cases for OCC!

Our family loves making shoebox gifts for Operation Christmas Child! This involves packing a shoebox full of gifts for a child in need. We have prepared 50 shoeboxes for girls, ages 10-14 this year. I made these cute needle cases to add to the boxes, pattern by Natalie Barnes of Beyond the Reef, Teeny Simple Needle Cases for Friendship Group.

Here's the assembly line-up. I discovered that strip piecing the shorter way, with four strips rather than with 6, makes the needle holder fold easier.

A New Handbag 👜

Yay! I made a new handbag! One of the perks of working at my LQS, Quilt Cove, is that I can take classes for free. Last Saturday I joined a handbag class and made this. I had it partially done at the end of class. I went home and sewed until midnight to finish it: 
The pattern is The Essential Tote by Around the Bobbin:
