In Love with Stitch in Color


stitch in color bow purse

Back in February, my friend Stephanie and I visited our favorite LQS, The Cotton Cupboard because they were having a different sale every day that month!  As soon as I walked in the door, my eyes immediately were drawn to some new fabrics Stitch in Color by local artist Malka Dubrowsky (Moda fabrics).  I practically drooled all over them and proceeded to hem and haw over which ones to get and well, let’s just say that I walked out with way more than I usually do because I found the PERFECT fabric to make a Luscious bow tote with! 

Link up your entry starting June 10!


I adore how this turned out and I am entering it in Ellison Lane Quilts Summer Sewing Contest!  This purse was a lot of fun to make and the pattern easy to follow too.

Here is a picture of the inside, just as fun as the outside, wouldn’t you say?  Many months ago I was blessed to win an assortment of Aurifil threads and for this one, I used a FUN multicolored one, you can see the thread close up if you click on the photo.

and last but not least, my FAVORITE besides the purse of course, is my Stitch in Color Zippy Wallet!  I made mine a little larger than Anna did so the credit cards could fit better.

 

Fresh Quilting: Fearless Color, Design, and InspirationI rounded out my collection by purchasing this book, which is signed by Malka.  TONS of great bold, fresh quilting projects in there!

How funny... my closest LQS is also called Cotton Cupboard :) Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm not very consistent at blogging - I mostly write like I was updating news around here to my grown daughters.
I actually visited yesterday and read about the changes in your life...must have clicked your Purse Palooza bag on Flickr - I like it :) I should try hard to leave a comment or 2 when I blog hop!
