What’s Under Your Needle? Part 3 – Notes From Our Sewing Community
In our third edition of What’s Under Your Needle, we have all kinds of notes from our sewing community to share what they are working on. It’s wonderful to see everyone keeping busy and doing what they love.
Our sewing community is so amazing! Over the weekend they began working on masks for our healthcare workers. SO many people are coming together to share information, supplies, patterns – it’s truly heartwarming. If you’re looking for a pattern, our long-time friend of the store, Sarah Boyd, shared this one with us to share with everyone.
Sarah’s Sewing Room – Part 3
That Sarah, she’s still stitching away on her BERNINA 770 QE Tula Pink Edition, working on her mystery quilt. That basket of triangles we saw a few days ago? They are the beginning of Whizz Bang blocks. Are you familiar with the book Whizz Bang! Adventures with Folded Fabric Quilts? It’s a wonderful book that combines fabric folding techniques with quilt blocks to make gorgeous one-of-a-kind projects.
Sarah loves the book and is having a blast. She has made several blocks and pieces over the last few months. She’s having so much fun that she had to cut more fabric! Look at what she’s done so far! Aren’t they gorgeous?
We can’t wait to see how she puts it all together. Yes, yet another CLIFFHANGER! Stay Tuned…
A Labor of Love
Ann Person is keeping busy. She has a few projects under her needle! One of them is something we’ve known about for quite some time.
Ann has been embroidering away, finishing her blocks for the “Animal Adventure” quilt she is making by Anita Goodesign. This has been a labor of love for Ann for several months, and she’s finally finished with the blocks! The next step? she needs to finalize the layout. Ann used a lot of fabric from her stash as well as fat quarters she bought at Keep Me In Stitches.
When she started this project, she realized she needed a larger hoop than what came with her Baby Lock Journey. She wanted to make this quilt so much that she purchased the upgrade for her machine. Once it came in, she had the hoop she needed to get started. We can’t wait to see the finished product!

A Little Something Special
Carmen DePalma is working on a “little something” for her granddaughter on her Baby Lock Destiny 2. She says, “This In-the-Hoop Zipper Bag is for my granddaughter’s sunglasses. The zipper pull is a little vinyl castle. The bag is lined with fleece and the tab is made with double-fold elastic. It also has a key ring so it can easily be clipped to her tote bag.”
We think this is such a fun project! We love the detail of the little bows.
Check back with us in a couple of days when we’ll see how Sarah’s quilt is coming along as well as updates from others in our community working on some really fun projects! We’ve got great things to share with you!
