Quilted Sewing Machine Cover



This project really started because I had two triangles of this really cute Dear Stella Piper Dots print  leftover after I made bias tape and I just had to make a project out of them!  



Coincidentally (or fate – who knows?!) I started working on my first quilt around that very time.  I was so taken with my first quilt, but I didn’t want to start my first quilting experience directly on my newly pieced together quilt top.  I had been meaning to make myself a sewing machine cover to replace the ever so stylish plastic one that came with my machine.  I thought – this is it! 




I decided to just start piecing together the left over fabric from my quilt.  Funny how things sometimes just come together organically when you let your creativity go :)  

 
As you can see the dots triangles take center stage on the front of my sewing machine cover!  Since they weren’t exactly the same size, they don’t match up perfectly, but I purposely left it to remind myself that quilting isn’t about being perfect – which really tests my perfectionist tendencies!!


Something so simple and yet it brings me lots of happiness every time I remove it to start my day of sewing and replace it to mark the end of my day.
