Fall Quilted Tablerunner

With a Flash


Without a Flash

I made this table runner for a “Quilting Buddie”.  I hope she likes it. It is an original design. Something I kind of just came up with. I used a green variegated thread for the leaf design in the border. I used a brown to quilt in the diagonal lines.


Cardinal Wall Hanging

I made this wall hanging for a swap on My Quilting Buddies. The theme was bird/birdhouse. I found the bird panel on ebay and fell in love with it. I just love cardinals and sunflowers. I so wanted to keep it for myself. I used some multi colored thread to quilt the leaves, around the bird, colander, and the bird house.

I also finished this UFO table runner.

Charmed Table Runner and Coaster

I made this table runner and set of drink coasters for dear friends from church. Justin is our youth minister and song leader. His fiance Sylvia teaches the little kids too. They are a sweet young couple whom I wish many years of happiness. Her bridal shower was yesterday. I started to make a quilt but just didn’t have time to work on it. It is much easier to make smaller projects. Maybe i will still be able to make that quilt before they get married on December 22nd.


This is the fabric on the back.


Here she is opening the gift.


Sewing Away…

I have been fortunate enough to be able to find time to sew over the last week. I have made quite a few items. Here is a burp cloth to match the bibs I made for Brandy.


This is a skirt I made for Emily. I was supposed to have it done before school started. But late is better than not at all.


I made this table runner a while ago and never got around to sandwiching it. I quilted it and now it is waiting for its binding.


DSC07991This is the back. I used red thread on the back too. I think it looks pretty nice against the black and white fabric.


I also made a baby quilt for my blog friend Melzie. I’m  not going to show a picture until I know she has it. I am mailing it out this week.

Happy Scrappy Table Runner

This morning I finished sewing three blocks together from a swap. I made extra for myself with the intention of making a quilt. I decided this morning that I have too many UFO’s to add another one to the pile. I sewed the blocks together and made a table runner out of them. I used a Juki TL-98Q to quilt the table runner. It was so awesome. So much easier to quilt with than my regular machine. I borrowed Crazy Mom’s  idea of circular quilting for this table runner. It looks so neat on quilts. This was a lot of fun. I made and finished this project in a few hours. Yeah me. I was in major need of some sewing time. I was going through with drawls. LOL. If you sew you understand.



Here is the fabric I used for the back. I have about 3 yards of this fabric. It must have been on sale.


200th Post

It is hard to believe that I have reached 200 posts in less than 9 months. Where has the time gone? So I have decided to give away three items. For the 1st prize I made a Batik table runner. It measures 9 1/2 x 22 inches.

Here is the back.

Here is what 2nd place will get. A Moda Flannel Charm pack.

3rd place will get this fabric postcard I made.

I will announce the winners on Monday morning. So leave me a comment between now and Monday morning. Good luck.

Patience Corners Table Runner


I made this table runner as a Christmas gift for a friend. The pattern is from Quilter’s Cache. It is called Patience Corners. It uses 4 1/2 inches squares and 2 1/2 inch strips. This block is great for stash busting. It was so easy to make. The block size is 12 1/2 unfinished. I quilted it in the ditch with my machine. I think a scrappy quilt would look awesome using this block. I have tons of 2 1/2 inch strips from swaps and left overs. I am definitely making a quilt with this pattern.
