Looking for a Pattern

I've offered to make a friend an iPhone case for her birthday (which I missed!) - and now I'm looking for a pattern!

I've got some lovely embroidery designs to choose from to put on the case - but I'm looking for an easy pattern for the case itself - quilted or sewn. Does anyone perhaps have a suggestion for me?

Season's Greetings

I hope that everyone is having or has had a happy holiday of choice. We celebrate Christmas, and this year it has been very low key.

If Santa has been a visitor in your house, what lovely quilty things has he brought you? I'll take pictures of some of what I received for future posts. But right now, he's in our basement (Santa, aka DH) working on making me a large sewing area. I'm currently working in a very small room, and it's difficult to feel motivated when you have to wind your way around things to get to your sewing machine.

I have a question for all of you experienced quilters/sewers out there. I'm sure it's been obvious that I am still very much a beginner. I have a recurring problem while sewing that is driving me nuts. Sometimes, when I'm piecing, the fabric flows under the presser foot beautifully. On other occasions, the bottom fabric stays on one path, while the top fabric decides to go off to the side a bit. Am I causing this?
