Tie One On Blog Hop – Day 3

Now for Tie One on Blog Hop Day 3 – the incredible Sue O’Very!

Sue has been involved in the designing and sewing industry for more years than she looks capable of. Read that as she must have started in the industry when she was 9  🙂  I found her bio here very interesting. She has a LOT going on! Seriously, her street cred list is LONG!

Her blog post today lists a bunch of her other patterns that she made using Tie One On PLUS a really great step by step tutorial and video for a Toiletries Roll Up that looks pretty versatile! Sue has a been a big supporter of Tie One On from the first time I ever reached out for help sewing projects with the line. I love this, because she makes all sorts of things that I would not even think of making!

She made the very cool Bag below for our Spring Quilt Market booth. It is very well made and her skill of using cork is superb.  The pattern is called Pouch in the Hoop and it is only found at your local sewing machine dealers. If they don’t carry it, tell them should and they can get it from Brewer or Checker!

Here are the Blue Nickel Visual Contributions for today’s post.

This little project is just a piece that I have been playing with – absolutely no plan for usefulness or placement.  To me, the “Be a Man” quote in the middle of the pink Pick Nick tjap surrounded by the embroidery is very funny in its “gender assignment” clashing (that’s a thing, right?)

I used these blocks from my Hashabout Quilt as samples in the class I taught this summer in Sisters. Should I work them up into a Valentines runner or something else?

Reminders about the Hop…

Make sure you stop by each of the stops on the Blog Hop tour!

Remember each of them will be choosing one winner of a fantastic bundle of Tie One On Fat Quarters! And one commentor from each of my blog posts ABOUT these mighty fine peeps will win some little treat as well.
