Q and A about the mixer cover

Oh so glad you all liked those mixer covers as much as I did. Now to answer your questions. Did I follow a pattern or tutorial? Yes and no. Helpful, right? I found a tutorial online, but I really only used her pattern pieces, which I ended up extending by 3/4 an inch on all pieces. Let me say, had I followed the instructions, my life may have been easier. Don't ask me why I just didn't as I really have no reason to my madness. Below is the link to the tutorial. You can also find the link in my pinterest page, which I have added a button for on my side bar.

Mixer Cover Remix 2

One of my dear friends just moved into a new house.  She also has a new mixer.  I thought that she would like a mixer cover, too.  This one doesn't have a pocket, but I really like the embellishments.

A New Mixer Cover

Mom wanted a new mixer cover.  She picked out this pretty Pam Kitty Morning fabric, don't you love it?  She wanted a pocket on it for her manual and spatulas.  I have a sick kid today....stomach flu.  So, I will keep this one short.

Pinwheel Baby Quilt

I have always wanted to make this pinwheel baby quilt by Jodi of Pleasant Home.  Always finally came true, I guess.  I whipped out the quilt top in about 4 hours.  You can find the tutorial here at Moda Bake Shop.

Fabric:  Ten Little Things by Jenn Ski of Moda (her first line)
FYI:  Only precuts are released of this line right now.  Yardage comes in April.

I love the prairie points.  Oh, and the pinwheels.  Very cute.

Now I must admit, that Jodi has you cut your squares into triangles before sewing them for the 4 quarters of your pinwheel.  I had never done a pinwheel this way.  I're thinking, what?  I kind of like it.  Sure beat drawing lines.  Also, I had never pressed my seams open.  I usually marry the know what I mean?  I think these worked out better than any of my previous pinwheels.  Nice and pointy.  You know what I mean?
