Cover up

In my new apartment my sewing space has down sized from a 10x12 room to 4x 4 space. And my sewing table is right in front of a window. I decided I needed a machine cover. (never mind that my machine came with a hard plastic cover) So I started to look around for patterns or ideas. and decided to just wing it and come up with something on my own. I went to my scrap box and found some star blocks I made for another project and then didn't use and some other bright fun fabrics and this is what I came up with .

I decided to make it different on each side so I could have a change if I wanted. I made 9 patches for this side and then the other side looks like this.

I like both sides and when I'm getting in my car and driving away or coming home I can see it out the window and it looks good.

Hope you have a great day.

Oh, my plastic machine covers sit in the back of the closet - they all have pretty ones made for them. I love the reverse option. Very nice.
