Fall Projects

I still owe you a report on my trip to Alaska and the quilt shops, and you will get that before the end of the year.  However, I have been busy working on some fall projects and should have lots to show and tell in the next month or so.

Fall Fabric Covered Box

Here’s a cute fabric covered box that I made from a class I took at Liberty Rose.  Sharon thought of this idea and taught it as a class.  This is one of my favorite projects because it only takes a 2 or so hours to complete from start to finish.  When done, it looks like something store-bought!

Project Storage Idea – Sara Lee Bakery Case

I found this Sara Lee Bakery Display at the local antique store.  It’s the perfect place to store all my works in progress.  As you can see, I have quite a few projects going on right now.  Most of these are 75% complete and will be done in the next few weeks.  Stay tuned!

Keep it thimble!

  1. Your link to the Liberty Rose site is spelled incorrectly. You typed “blogsport” instead of “Blogspot”.

    I went to the Liberty Rose site and could not find the pattern for the boxes. Could you sent me a link?

    1. Thanks for letting me know about the typo. I have fixed it. I also clarified where I had the pattern – it was taught as a class and she doesn’t have a pattern for sale. However, here is the link to the tutorials for making fabric covered boxes:

      For the pincushion inside, just make the top part of the Shaker Pincushion from my pattern which can download from this post: https://keepitthimble.com/2010/01/25/free-patternshaker-pincushion/. Trace around the bottom of the box to get the size circle you need for your cushion.

      The leaves were two pieces of wool appliquéd together. We punched holes in the top and used a button to secure the leaves to the top.
