Sew Sisters Blogathon!

Pin ItSewSistersQuiltShop

For those of you visiting blogs from the Maritimes today, I'm Jeanette and have been blogging here for about 6 years.  It started off as a place to share my paper crafts, but then I returned to my first love of fabric around 4 years ago.  Now, I'm busy doing custom sewing orders and craft fairs and I love it!  The best one is coming up this weekend in Halifax at the St. Mary's Boat Club, you can check it out at ECMC.

Yesterday, I finished up some more craft fair sewing- these cute drawstring bags.

This year, I've made only a few quilts.  They now live in Cape Breton, and belong to a photographer, which means I get to see them in action on her family photo shoots!

This one, I made with my Mom as a Christmas gift to my nephew.
This really cute toadstool quilt was for a friend who had a spring baby.  She had a girl, but at the time I made it neutral for either a girl or a boy!

Almost forgot to show these cute patchwork zippered pouches I made yesterday too-

Have fun visiting all the Canadian Bloggers- I "met" a lot of new people when I was host last year and I love seeing everyone's beautiful quilting/sewing.  Thanks for visiting!

Now for the babies....

Pin ItLast time, I posted a cuddle blanket for grown ups-now it's all about the babies!  Only 9 days to finish prepping for the fair-now I'm getting nervous!

I ordered fabric from Warp and Weft last week and made these 3 gorgeous blankets.  Well, 2 of the hedgehog since it's just so cute.  I've had my eye on the bunny fabric for a long time, and since I was out of linen fabric I thought I would place an order for linen, and some fun woodland prints!
This fabric was found at a local quilt shop called Atlantic Fabrics.  I'm really in love with that raccoon fabric- really cute.
And this is the last of my beloved toadstool fabric.  I've made a quilt, crayon wallets, drawstring bags and now this blanket.  I'm said to say, it is all used up and I no longer have any in my stash...

Cuddle blanket for grown-ups!

Pin ItI'm so happy we live in a place that offers seasons!!  Then we get to cuddle up with warm blankets on the couch-just finished this lovely one as part of a large order.  This is the 3rd one finished-one more to complete.

The flowered fabric in this blanket is from Jeni Baker's Nordika line.  I love the mint background one, I wish I had ordered more!!

Notebooks/passport holders

Pin ItSo, the fair last weekend went really well-I sold lots of scarves and chenille blankets.  Even a quilt!!  That is a first for me at a craft show, so I was very pleased about that.  Now, the prep begins again for the next one.  I will be making a variety of projects, and am now impatiently waiting for my next order of Linen fabric to arrive so I can make some more of these list takers-they are quite popular.  Hope everyone has a great weekend!
