Quilted Vests Oct 3 2013

Hello, a while ago i had bought a pack of Fat Quarters, and chopped them up and sewed together the pieces.  I added some pieces of lace, piping, trim, rick rack, and using the fancy stitches on the machine, WA LA!!
 Actually these were made before the MACHINE, i was using Gramma's old Singer, or Kathy's. Kathy's had fancier stitches.
  I just meandered around with the stitches and  trims.

 I loved the combinations of colors.

I had a bunch of Debbie Mumm Halloweenie prints. Chopped them up and sewed them together.

WILD and CRAZY Lining print. I used a velco closure, bought some wooden Pumpkin buttons but never was brave enough to make buttonholes on this.
I made a real fancy vest  for someone, wanted $100 for it. But my sister asked her, How much do YOU think it is worth? Lady said, $50. I put a ton of work into it too.

Bunny Quilts Oct 3 2013

Hello  I did these Bunny Quilts some time ago. I used the Fusible web to attach the pieces. I did some painting along the edges, and sewing around some.

 This one is a bit bigger, i did appliques in the corners.

ASUS Tablet Case Oct 3 2013

Hello Oct 3 2013
I got a COOL ASUS Tablet at Staples. It was on clearance. Later I got a Transformer 300T Keyboard Dock through  I had it delivered to Sears, picked up there, that way didn't have to pay shipping.
BUT i made the Quilted case before i bought the Keyboard Dock, so it is now too small. I need to make a bigger one. Plus, i bought this plastic case for it, and even with that on, it no longer fits. :(

 I added piping to the bottom and top edges. I rounded the top edge, kinda using a dinner plate as a guide.

 I quilted around the Paisley motifs, and used the walking foot to sew up the straight edges of each row.

 I sized it up with the 10" Tablet.

Inside out to sew the edges together, and show off the quilting. I didn't need to do the piping the whole way along the edges.

It does fit, before the Keyboard dock, and Plastic /rubber case thingy i had bought, after i dropped it on the tile floor at CHP.

COOL!! Needs a  closure of some kind now.
