My husband asked me to make a table topper for a small table we purchased at a sale. I had a couple of free charm packs I’d received with a previous fabric order and decided they would fit the bill—and who doesn’t love stars! I lost a few of my points on a couple of the stars : ( but I think it’s a happy-looking little table topper regardless. I quilted it with wavy lines. My husband liked it : )
I made this size blanket for my daughter several years ago to use with her first child. It was constantly used for the car seat and stroller. So in Covid I decided to make another with the scraps I had. The top is flannel/minky owls and the back is minky.
I still have Kansas Troubles and the like fabrics. I think this must be project 6. When I saw the tutorial for the Nine Sisters pattern on the Jordan Fabrics YouTube site it moved to the top of my list! This quilt is a queen size so I adjusted the corners from the pattern to have finished stars. Put a small cream border around it all and then the burgundy large border. I used my Elvira ruler and a straight edge to do the stars. The cream squares between the stars have a single star. The creams separating all the stars have a meander with scattered stars. The final border has "piano keys" at one inch and again scattered stars.
Since March we have been stuck at home but for a grocery or pharmacy run. The family is about to go back to work so made some face mask for them. These are 3 layers of fabric, pocket in back for coffee filter insert and finally found some elastic. Thank you to Jenny Dolan for shared pattern. Smiley lip is for my daughter-in-law who is a receptionist. FSU mask ( 14 of them) for granddaughter for fall back to college. John Deere is for hubby, kitty whiskers is mine and the 2nd photo of Deer and bear in woods is for our son who is a project manager. After making masks for neighbors, friends and donations I am going to start some quilts now finally.
I've had this Pooh fabric for at least 10 years. When my daughter was pregnant with her 1st baby... she thought she wanted a Pooh themed nursery...she changed her mind once she found out she was having a girl. I was asked to make a baby quilt during the lock down and with fabric stores closed...I was forced to go into my stash. I've never been crazy about this fabric but it made a decent quilt.
Forced to be at home more due to COVID-19 regulations & indoors I tuned to YouTube tutorials and decide to make the Braid Quilt pattern. Instead of making my braid go the length of the quilt I decided to go across the quilt instead. I used the left over pieces to make the smaller border before finishing with the larger border. It was quilted using a longarm quilter.
After watching the tutorial by Connie Campbell I made this table runner for my sister Lesley. I think it turned out just beautiful and my sister loves it. I simply stitched in the ditch to quilt it. It took just under 8 hours from first cut of the fabric to the final stitch in the binding:)
