Another Version of Simon's Applique Magic

We are all working hard, I am even sitting at the sewing machine - a thing I rarely do these days, but must say I do miss it and enjoy it when I do. I do love to sit and sew. Thought I would share the Simon's Applique Magic quilt made with the 7 1/2in blocks using the Jenny Join and the 1/4in bias tape. By the way this gorgeous quilt is also double sided!

This quilt is another example of what is on Simon's Applique Magic design CD - a design CD that caters to every hoop size!

This vibrant little pillow is made with four 6in designs, pieced with the Jenny Join to make a 12in block, which is made up into a fabulous pillow.

Go Simon, you are just so clever, we just love these designs. More in the next blog!!

Yahoo Simon's Applique Magic - is just that MAGIC

Simon's Applique Magic designs have finally been shipped to RNK Jenny Haskins Division! This is fabulous news, but the best news is that these designs cater for ALL HOOP SIZES 5in, 6in, 7 1/2in, 10in and 12in. The blocks can be made up as one 12in block (as a single design or four pieced 6in designs),, 10in block (made from four pieced 5in designs),  or a single    7 1/2in block. The pieced blocks are easily pieced with the now world famous Jenny Join, which is even made easier as Simon has his built-in-stitch cutting lines!

This is how I am feeling right now!!

Hope everyone had a great holiday season and are getting back into the swing of things.

Me I am totally behind the eight ball at present, but have a few surprises in store for myself and others too!

Simon has made me promise that I will write in my blog twice a week - no promises, but I will try.

My Yoga is going well, I am back at it and I am now working with a personal trainer, want to tone up my upper arms so they are stronger - we will see. I am totally tanned, not quite at the terrific state, but working on it.

Wait for my next blog and see what Simon has been doing - he has worked through the holiday season and has some amazing things to share and if you are not already doing it please 'like' our Face book for Jenny Haskins Designs: www.facebook/jennyhaskinsdesigns1 this will keep you up to date daily on what Simon is doing, he is amazing.

Just to keep you interested, here is out next Ministry of Sewing module 1:6 you will love this, a new twist on Simon's Piece de Resistance CD, quilt and technique. What do you think? All done in the hoop and totally double sided!!
