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.
