Well, it WAS my birthday in July, when DH bought the gorgeous batik fabric I wanted to make my "Professional Tote". I finished it just before we took a whirlwind road trip to California last weekend. It holds all manner of personal items, there's a place for a water bottle on each side, and roomy enough to hold my current knitting project. I love it!!

Cindy did a beautiful job on this quilt...such perfect little squares! She wanted something special as this quilt will be for her mother's upcoming birthday. I used Sew Fine in the bobbin for the entire quilt. Again, when faced with such diversity of color in the outer border and within the large squares, I used mono-poly to give texture without overtaking the quilt with thread color. I plan to deliver it tomorrow...here's hoping she approves!

This quirky quilt was great fun to work on. The ladies definitely have attitude!! I used Sew Fine in bobbin throughout, and Sew Fine on top in the background behind the ladies. For the rest of this bright and bold quilt, I used mono-poly on top so as to provide texture without competing with all those colors.
