Weekend Finishes

I made a sewing machine cover for my friend, Cat.  She bribed me with flattery and said I could do whatever I wanted.  I was a bit nervous since her style is more traditional than mine, but, fingers crossed, she'll like it.  I tried for clean and modern with a bit of visual interest in the pebble quilting and hand quilting.  The light tan fabric is Essex linen cotton blend in Sand.

Next up are a sham and throw pillow that were a custom order from the lady who bought my Mendocino mermaid quilt:

Mermaid Pillows!

I feel like I should be getting more done since I have a long to-do list, but I've had a persistent cough for 2 weeks that has made sleeping hard work.  I try, but usually I toss and turn and cough.  Boo!  My oldest had it for 2.5 weeks so I'm hoping there is a light at the end of this sick tunnel!  No, I have no been sewing when I should be sleeping.  For those of you who don't know, I love my sleep and am rarely in bed after 1030.  I get all my sewing done during the day (I'm a morning person).  However, being so tired is not very motivating!

they are beautiful Kelly! So fun that your customer requested some matching pillows! Yay you!

And trust me, you got PLENTY done! You've been sooo productive lately I think you are just surprised that you didn't whip out another quilt yet. lol

This looks like a very productive weekend, Kelly! Everything you make is so pretty. Love the pebble quilting.

Love the cover and the pillows...especially that flange.

I haven't been getting much done around here... but I have this week off, so I'm hoping to change that! :)

I know how you feel. I haven't been feeling too well either. Not a cold, thankfully, but it doesn't make me want to quilt.
Love what you did. Even sick you get more done than I do.

Feel better :(
You've been so productive this year so far, I think you can let yourself have a little bit of a break without the guilt! :)

P.S. Love those pillow shams!

Is there a pattern or written instructions for the flanged pillow sham? I need to make shams to match my son and DIL's wedding quilt I gave them at their wedding in July. I want mine to look very similar to yours. Thanks N
