First Finish For 2014

Finally!  I have my first finish for 2014!  I made a quilted cover for my bread machine.  In the winter the bread machine sits on the counter as we use it about once a week.  Nothing better than homemade soup with fresh bread.  I wanted something bright and cheery, so I used my charm pack of "Eat Your Fruits n' Veggies" by Pat Sloan for Moda.    (There are batiks which weren't in the charm pack.)

I just laid the five inch squares on the bread machine to get an idea of how many I would need.  I had pinned this sewing machine cover on Pinterest as I still want to make a cover for my sewing machine.  I used this tutorial as a guide.  Only I didn't turn sew it together in the same manner. I quilted it and added binding.

My charm squares all sewn together.  I added batting and backing and quilted it with a wavy X. 

 The finished cover.

Another view. I love how bright this fabric is.  Perfect for a pop of color in winter.  The machine is now going to stored away for the summer, but it will have this nice cover for protection from the dust.

Woo Hoo for a finish! I really love all the bright and cheery charms you picked for your new cover. It really brightens up your counter nicely :)

Happy Easter Karen!
