Let the People Choose - September

 Hello Stitching Friends,

Today I´m joining Jo of Serendipitous Stitching for the SAL called `Let the People Choose´.

This month´s theme is Sewing, so I delved into my files to see what I could find.  Practically all the embroidery that I do is eventually sewn into something more or less useful, so here I will endeavour to show items with more sewing than embroidery.

This is a quillow - that is a blanket/quilt which folds into itself to become a pillow.  I made it years ago when my youngest grandson was born.

For another grandson, I made a quilt based on the storybook `The Bremen Musicians´.

I copied the fun illustrations by Petra Steinmeyer.

I was inspired by some cute mice from another storybook and after dressing them up a bit, made my sewing machine cover.

A  couple of tote bags, one was gifted to a friend and the other smaller beach tote was claimed by my daughter.

I´ll leave all the table runners and place mats for another day and finish this post with my favourite patchwork cushion.

Bye for now.



  1. I'm intrigued by the idea of a "quillow", and I love the ones you've done!

  2. What a wonderful variety of projects you've made, Sheryl! I can see why the last pillow is your favorite--such amazing detail in that one, right down to the jewels around the King's neck. Your work is always so special. Hope September is going well so far! ♥
