For the whole month of August I have been making Christmas creations using my new Boxes-N-Bows block design. First there were these two table runners using the new Holiday Cheer collection by Jan Shade Beach for Henry Glass Fabrics. I really loved the soft and festive colours in this collection. Then I purchased more of last year's Holiday Frost, by the same designer, and started on tworead more

I know December 25th is a long way off yet. But I have been in a Christmas mood lately! This week I finished the tops for six festive place mats. Made from last year's collection, Holiday Frost by Jan Shade Beach for Henry Glass Fabrics. I used my new Heat N Bond fusible web to do some fun applique. It has been a long time since I did any applique! Each place mat measures approximately 12"read more
Last week, I showed off some new Christmas fabric and mentioned my intentions to start on a Christmas tree skirt. I did indeed work on a tree skirt, (no pictures yet) but had more than enough fabric with those half yard cuts, so I also used my Boxes-N-Bows design to make six cute Christmas place mats. To add to the width of the Boxes-N-Bows blocks to make them wide enough for a place mat,read more
In spite of a power outage, I managed to get these Christmas table runners quilted and bound in two days. The quilting is quite dense and was a little time consuming, but sew worth it! This first runner finished at 14" x 49" after quilting. The second runner finished at 14" x 70". Both are now for sale in my Etsy shop. I am sew impressed with the effect of the organic wavyread more
How are you doing, my friends?!! I finished my Boxes-N-Bows table runners this past weekend. Here is a little sneak peek, but I will not be sharing the finish post until Friday. These projects incorporated the use of my 2nd and 3rd quilt labels. Three down... 97 to go! You can design and order your own labels here. What am I working on now? I dropped in to buy these Christmas themedread more
On Wednesday, I mentioned my recent fabric additions, of the Christmas variety. They are Holiday Cheer by Jan Shade Beach for Henry Glass Fabrics. Looking for some guidance as to what to make with them, many of the comments left recommended a table runner. So I sat down with my graph paper and drew up these fun Boxes-N-Bows blocks. Each block finishes at 10" square. And could also beread more
Today I was excited to see the quilt I made for Henry Glass Fabric's Desire to Inspire Challenge published! I really loved making this quilt - there was a lovely border stripe that I very much wanted to use as a focal point. It made it very challenging as that piece was only about a yard long, limiting the size of my quilt. I did a lot of creative measuring and plotting as I tried to make the most of what I had to use!
It was super helpful to be able to use EQ7 to figure out my design ... read more
I can hardly believe that summer is half way over - already! The kids have been home from school since the beginning of the month and we have been keeping busy with baseball games and practices, swim team practices and meets.... And have also been watching the television series LOST on DVD, borrowed from our local library. Following my Friday finish posts, I am usually well on my way with myread more
Today's Friday finish are these two mini quilt tops!
Aunt Elna and I have been keeping busy. (She is my trusty sewing machine.)
We're not the only ones who have been busy. There are plenty of volunteers who have been hard at work helping to test the new Ombre Sewing Studio mini quilt patterns.
Bit by bit, the feedback has been rolling in. And the patterns have been refined.

Each quilt features 1" finished strips.
