I made another zipper pouch (birthday present). Isn't this cute? Perfect little pouch to feature cute fabric... and it's pretty easy too!!

Cat-eye zipper pouch (8'' x 5.5'')

And last, but not least, I want to remind you that I am working on charity quilts,
and I would love your help!! 
Quilts are for a quilt drive to help the kids in the DC General Homeless Shelter. 
And you can help me by donating orphan blocks, partial blocks, or fabric (scraps, strips, leftover, uglies, whatever). 
If you are willing to mail them to me, I could use them to make more quilts for these kids!!! 
If you are up for a loving donation, please send me an email at tweloq[_at_]gmail[dot_com] or leave a comment here with your email address so I could give you my mailing address. I promise that your donation will be used to make some kids happy and feel more loved!! 

I am happy to report that I received two wonderful donations from Diana and Kaelyn! Look at the amount of fabric/thread goodness that now I can use!! (and yes, my sewing helper tested the donation for comfort and coziness and I am happy to report that the donation received maximum marks and now I can go on and start planning my next quilts) :)

The panels/animal fabric donated from Cynthia already found their way in my third top:

(I know, the piece needs ironing ;) )

And I didn't get just that top done this week... I also quilted and bound the top I made a month ago!

Size: 41'' x 40''
Quilted with organic lines
(Organic = I know they should have been straight and they are not, but I don't care!!) ;)

The quilt needs to be washed but it's already super pouffy and snuggly, so I am very happy about the final result!!

How about you? What are YOU up to?
Link it here and share it with me!!


  1. you have been getting a lot done. I like that dresden a lot... very innovative. And the obelisk on the back is so striking with the quilting. LeeAnna

  2. What a great Dresden Squared quilt! Love it!


Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear from you!
Please share your thoughts on my projects with me!
