Floral Train Case

I’ve got my new Handi Quilter long arm machine set up and running now with lots of practice going on while I get a feel for it.  The one thing I’m learning quickly is that I need to take breaks from standing, so an alternate sewing project was called for by the end of the week!

I saw one of Sara Lawson’s Crimson & Clover train cases done in a lovely floral fabric and while I couldn’t find the exact print I was attracted to in her photo, I did find one I liked well enough to go ahead with the project.  I’ve made the small and medium versions in the past so decided to do a large one this time.

As with any sewing project that involves some tedious work in certain areas, the larger version was easier to maneuver at the sewing machine, but it does require some extra stabilizer in the top and bottom to help keep its shape.  I used a 4.5 handbag zipper – these have become my favourite for bag making – and changed out the pulls to make it more decorative.

Stay tuned for a post about my first quilt done on the long arm.  It’s being laundered today 🙂
