Besides my sewing machine and my fabric, this is my favorite thing in my sewing room.

I am sure you will also want one of those for your sewing room if you don’t already have one. I love both of mine.

I fell in love with this charming beehive and violet 36" x 36" table topper/ wall hanging. Being a pattern by Jan Patek I felt the edges needed to be turned under, therefore this is the perfect quilt for mock hand applique! All the look of hand sewing, but done using a blind hem or zig zag stitch on your sewing machine. Learn how to prepare your fabric pieces using stick and peel paper ( this product allows you to leave the paper inside the quilt ). Learn to use a bias tape maker to create your flower stems. Then using your sewing machine and invisible thread or wonderfil machine sew all your pieces onto a simple pieced background. This will be a beautiful addition to your home decor!
