Veritasium: The Surprising Genius of Sewing Machines. (YouTube, 18:42min) “Sewing machines are mechanical marvels – here’s how they work.”
This is a very quick sewing project I might try to make in time for the holidays. Great way to show off some lovely Christmas fabrics!
We recently got a new coatrack for our vestibule, and since it is the first thing you see when you enter the house I thought it could use a colorful table runner. I finally used some of my prized stack of Barcelona by Zen Chic aka Brigitte Heitland that I’ve been saving for years. Not the fat quarters I talked about last year when I met the designer herself at a fair, but a charm pack.
Th project was inspired by the easy charm pack baby quilt.
“A barn quilt is a quilt block which is painted on a barn.” Read all about them by following the links in this post:
MetaFilter: “You don’t have to be a quilter – or own a barn!”.
I think I need to seek some of these out on my next trip to the US.
