We needed a table runner for our 9 foot table. I used the side kick ruler by Julie Herman to cut the diamonds and triangles for this project. I enjoyed playing around with the layout and tried to include some negative space for the quilting to show. It turned out just a bit too wide so it interferes with drinking glasses during dinner. I would hate to see a glass of wine spilled in it! I finished it just after Thanksgiving so it will be put away until next year. Now I need to hurry and get something together for Christmas!
I made this wool felt advent calendar for my grandson, who just turned 2. My Mom had made a similar one for my children years ago and it was a fun annual tradition. I found a pattern similar to the one my Mom did on line. I combined some of the ornament patterns from the new pattern with some of my own and some from my Mom's tree. Hopefully this will bring wonderful memories to the next generation.
This panel has been in my stash for about 10 years. It was a donated item to our craft group at church. I thought the panel was for doily like item for candle rings. Someone also had fuzzy cut some of the bear designs out a few of the wreath. When I finally read the instructions I realized they were wreaths. I just used one of the wreath's then to make another backside for those wreaths that were cut into. The ribbon part was a hard item to stuff though for sure. Part of church craft sale going on as we write here.
Janet has always been there for my daughter and son in law for babysitting my grandkids kids. She is selfless with her time and will be there whenever needed. I made this quilt for her as a thank you for being a special great grandma. At 83 she still gets down on the floor to play. She is an amazing lady. I used Kaffee Clasics fat quarters and a white Minky for the backing. I also used a varigated orange thread for the quilting. the pattern is Double Square Star from Missouri Star.
My hubby purchased this lovely fabric collection, Gypsy Girl by Lily Ashbury, and I created this darling quilt. I love pinwheels! I didn't use a pattern for this project. I just make it up as I went along. Jenny shows a great idea on how to make fast and easy pinwheels. I machine quilted this quilt top on my Bernina 830 sewing machine that sits on a quilt frame.
