It has been a very long while since I have actually completed a sewing project, never mind a quilting one! I am so happy to say that it finally happened! I recently took off a week from work and painted the house, cooked, cleaned like a mad woman and sewed.
I had spotted this fabulous project on The Purl Bee blog quite a while ago and made a mental note to check it out on my next trip to NYC. In between running around like crazy to shops and tradeshows for work, I squeezed in a visit and picked up the prepared kit.
I was instantly in love with the Robert Kaufman fabrics. I think they are the perfect combination of natural cotton and webbing, denim stripe and a pop of neon. I was in the market for a laptop sleeve anyways and was having such trouble finding one I loved.
The kit sat untouched for quite awhile until the last night of my little staycation while Jamie did his homework beside me and I quilted away.
The pattern was easy to follow, and the only trouble I had involved a walking foot which did not properly fit my machine and broke a few needles. After that disappointment, I found my machine quilted through these layers with no problem.
You can find the pattern and project right here.
