Mixer Cover

Ta-da!  I completed the double disappearing nine patch mixer cover.  My mom was so pleased and surprised to receive a cover with such an intricate pattern.  Aren't the colors great?  I think the crimson sashing was a good choice.  I'm really happy with the overall look. 

Both cover patterns that I worked with had initial fabric measurements that allowed for shrinkage when quilting.  It made me sad to cut off bits of my piecing work, after I put in so much time and effort.  But the pattern is busy enough I don't think anyone will notice.

Of the two tutorials I referenced, I preferred the Heart of Mary tutorial.  I used most of her measurements and I really liked binding the outside, so that cover is reversible. (Although, who would reverse this thing of beauty?)

I rather like our Flying Tigers mixer, so I'm disinclined to make one of these for myself.  However, if I ever feel the need to jazz up the kitchen, this would be the way to do it!  This mixer cover looks good in our kitchen; I hope it looks as great at my parent's house. 

Sharing this on Show Off Saturday - because it's done!  Huzzah!  And since the I showed pieces on last week's Linky Tuesday, I figured I should show the finished work this week.

  4. Oh my goodness, that is a lot of tiny piecing! That cover will dress up any kitchen quite nicely.

    By the way, did you know that you are a no-reply blogger since you switched to google+ ? I'm a little slow, it just now occured to me that perhaps this was an unintentional change. Thanks for the comments you've left on my blog!

    1. I had never heard of no-reply blogger - and you're the second person today to mention it. I had no idea what it meant! You're correct - it was not intentional. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. I think I've fixed it.
