Long time, no see

It’s been awhile since I have posted. It has been hectic and crazy here. My oldest daughter graduated from Auburn and we moved her home. My husband was able to get home from Singapore for the ceremony.

We had a little party for her and then moved her home… a 3 1/2 hour trip. Then to the airport to get my mom back home and back to unpack. I am not going to even show you a picture of the garage or her room.

I finally completely finished all the pillows and a table runner for the apartment in Singapore. These pictures were taken in a hurry cause they had to go into a suitcase!

The table runner makes me happy …it’s reversible. One side is a zig zag …tutorial found at crazymom quilts.

The other side is a disappearing nine patch. PS I quilt has a good tutorial on her blog for this one….and lots of cute quilts. I used some Alexander Henry fabric that I found at JoAnne’s and some Denyse Schmidt that I found there too.

The pillows are all reversible and have a zipper closure. I used some of my favorite fabrics for the pinwheels and flying geese…reunion by sweetwater for moda. Love it. I raided the stash for the backings. I love the chair fabric but can’t remember where I got it or the designer.

There is a great tutorial at SewMamaSew but created by creative little daisy on putting a zipper in a pillow with a flap to cover it. I like that option because you can use a coordinating fabric and make it reversible. Two for one!

The next time I see these they will be getting unpacked in our apartment in Singapore. The four of us are traveling there for two months. First we are stopping in Germany for a few days. We don’t have internet access in our hotel so I’ll see you once we get to Singapore. Excited and nervous. Keep us in your prayers.
