Rainbow Cover

Black friday shopping this year, and I finally got the dslr camera that I've been wanting for a good couple of years now.  I wanted to make a pretty strap cover, so broke into a stack of FQ's my mom got me over a year ago that I've been hoarding. I used this chevron tutorial  and this strap cover tutorial for the actual cover.  It's nice having a pocket for the lens cap, and it is super comfy!

Strip quilt

Decided that I should sew some WIPs instead of starting new projects.  I've been wanting to try some spiral quilting...mostly from the hope that I'd have less wrinkling.  It took a ton of time...and thread!  However, I'm loving how it turned out.  I think if I attempt it again in the future, I might try to learn how to use my walking foot or get some kind of quilting guideline so I can line things up a little wider than the foot that I was using.  The girls love it, and made for a nice use of some of the novelty scraps I felt bad just dumping.  I did a teal color for the binding and LOVE how that ties in all the other colors!
