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.
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 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 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.
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.
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.
