Quilting for Violet

Finally I have gotten in a little sewing this summer!  I have been assisting and guiding a Lovely Little on her project for 4-H.  Since I was hanging out in the sewing room, I managed to whip this sewing machine dust cover up.  Randi has a great tutorial this month for her sew-a-long.  This went together easily.

I used most of the fabric left from Joy's cover for the inside lining.

Here is Joy in her quilt.

Violet in her quilt.
I have to say that I originally thought that Violet wouldn't need a dust cover.  She would just hide away in her cabinet while not sewing.  Well, I guess I am either too lazy, or this Singer 201 is just too useful.  She is always out and I am enjoying having two machines ready at a moments notice!  (Now if I could just figure out how to use them both at the same time.)

On another note, please notice the shiny, new button at the top of my blog.  Over the couple of years that I have been blogging, I have gotten acquainted with some great people.  One such person is Amy over at During Quiet Time.  She is having this great contest, with fabulous prizes.  Come join the fun, but don't you dare beat me!  ;0)

Okay, so I will totally forgive you if you do!




  1. I saw that tutorial and love the pattern! Miss seeing you all!

  2. So pretty!!! I'm glad Violet is attired as lovely as Joy.

  3. I am doing this machine cover too! I am just super behind doing it! I LOVE your pretty colors you used and that binding is PERFECT!!! I may have to use my fabric like that on the binding also :)


I love to hear your thoughts, and I try to respond. Thanks for sharing your time and encouragement!
