vintage camp trailer sewing machine cover

This is a project I started a while back, and today I buckled down to finish it!

I am so happy with the finish on this!  I love it!  I drafted the pattern from a picture of my very own vintage camp trailer (a 1967 Serro Scotty 'Gaucho')

Moda happy mail - Mixologie

I am THRILLED with this new bundle of fabric from Moda for my next Moda Bake Shop project!  You won't see the project finish until December.... However, I have a feeling I will finish it way before then!  LOVE these colors!  You can find all my MBS projects here.

Fabric is ''Mixologie'' by  Studio M (yardage due out in January, precuts will probably be out soon).  This is the first fabric I've worked with by Studio M, and I am so glad I got this collection!  It has the PERFECT shade of aqua (the Bella solid is called ''Spray'').  I am so excited for this quilt to come together.  I already have all my strip sets sewn and am working on pressing and subcutting (and more picture taking) today :)

Red Bliss polka dots

Well, I did decide to use the red Bliss polka dots.....  notice the very slight change in the pattern directions I have made?

another option - Metro Rings

I found this chunk of a red print from either Bliss or Ruby (I think Bliss?) that goes with the April Showers prints.  So, the blue from the last post, or this print?  Decisions decisions!!!  At least I know this print wouldn't match up with any of the April Showers prints - and I could still use the blue print as a binding......

Metro rings decisions

Trying to decide on the cornerstone color for the metro rings quilt.  I ordered the solid (I think this is Betty Teal?) that is supposed to coordinate.  It goes OK, but not perfect.  I ordered the ''mint'' that was suggested, and I am SO not in love with that color for these, so I didn't even bother to take a pic of it - I just stuck it away with my 30's prints.

Also trying to decide if I want to use one print/color or two.  I am leaning toward one print because I like the square instead of triangles....

Hmm, so far, I think that the blue polka dot might be my favorite.  The only problem being - there is some arcs that have that print in the end (see upper right in the pic below)

Decisions, decisions!

120 arcs

Lovely pile of scrappy arcs.  Can you guess what I'm making?
