WIP Wednesday - rainbow baby quilts & sewing machine cover

A sewing machine cover has been on my to do list for quite some time, and now that my son is tall enough for his wandering fingers to reach the sewing machine's fun knobs and buttons, it has become a priority! 

My machine sits out in the living room on a table, so a recent redecoration dictated the color scheme. Orange has replaced red as the main accent color in the room, so orange it is!

I was inspired by the vertical strips on Rashida Coleman-Hale's sewing machine cover in I Love Patchwork. I have added a few more columns of color and of varying widths, and rather than the grommet and tie closure she uses, I am planning to add sides and make it more like a closed box - just as soon as I figure out how to attach the side panels...  

I also have all the strips cut for coordinating rainbow baby quilts for two newborn twin girls. Ready to start piecing...

  1. Lovely fabrics, Jennifer! Those hedgehogs are especially cute!

  2. Nice group of fabrics . . . especially like the colors in the top photo. Good luck with the machine cover. I need to make one too.
