You can't start too early to make Christmas things. I just finished the flange Binding on these set of 8 Christmas Placemats. Thank you Jenny Dolan for your how to do flange bindings. You saved me the long hours to hand sew these . These will be in our Fall craft sale at our Church. Though I am tempted to keep these. From a panel A V.I.P. Print. by Cranston Print Works Co. Been in my stash a long time.
Mom's projects. This is another project where I needed to finish by doing the quilting. Then we were stuck, the project was old enough I really didn't think we would find the funny blue/purple we needed to bind it. But, the there it was in the last store of the day!
Another grad gift. He wanted simple, dark colors. I quilted it with diagonal lines, and then went back and doubled or tripled some of the lines somewhat randomly. I tried clear thread on the top for the first time, and found it easier to work with than I thought it would be.
Several of the organizations our Project Linus chapter gives blankets to asked for smaller quilts and blankets so I thought this would be a good way to use some squares and make fast projects. I sewed the squares into 9 patches and just went from there. Hope a child likes them!
My mom wanted a square box bag for her coffee bar. I have made a few of these bags already, they're really fun to make, so I picked out some fabric and I think it just turned out beautiful! The pattern is free from Yoan Sewing Studio and the fabrics I used are a charm pack called Fiorella by Robert Kaufman.
