Island Batik July Challenge - The Holly Family from Sew Preeti Quilts

The Island Batik Challenge for July urged us to get an early start on Christmas and other end of the year holiday projects!



In my first Island Batik Ambassador Box, I had received a strip set of Holly Holiday fabric, designed by Kathy Engle. With deep red/dark green colors and reindeer/pine shaped trees it screams Christmas. Naturally I set it aside for the July challenge.

I chose to make a tree skirt.


We have a small Christmas tree and some years we even put it up, when we are not traveling. If I make ...

Weekend Stitching from Cheryl's Teapots2Quilting

 I finally got some stitching done this weekend.  The Missouri TOGA (Treadle On Gathering & Academy) is having a mug & mug rug exchange.  I found several different mugs, then made some mug rugs to match.  One will be for the exchange, and the others will be for sale (funds to benefit the TOGA) in case someone comes that doesn't have a mug & mug rug, but still wants to participate in the exchange.

Snowflake from Quilt Doodle Doodles...


 It's been hotter than Hades here lately, we're not used to this kind of heat in June. This is more like mid July- August weather. I have been spending a lot of time inside, only to venture out to water the plants and flowerpots. I'm babying my little veggie starts and so far I've only lost one whimpy tomato plant. While trying to keep cool in the house I worked on a chilly little snowman mug rug. It's quick, it's cute.... perfect if you want to get a jump on some Christmas stocking stuffers ...

Easter Gnome from Quilt Doodle Doodles...

Easter weekend is just around the corner. March has just flown by. It's hard to believe that a year ago we went into Covid lockdown and hubby started working from home. We have developed a nice work routine over the last year. I lost my office to hubby but I have enjoyed working from the kitchen table and watching the birds and walkers as they go by. I have also enjoyed having lunch with hubby everyday. He went into work yesterday and the house was too quite. So lockdown has been a blessing in disguise. Oh, enough of me ...

Begonia Bunny from Quilt Doodle Doodles


 Spring is in the air, my seedlings have started to grow and I can't wait to get into the garden. Since it's too early to go digging in the garden, I can dream of spring in my sewing room. So I drew up this sweet little bunny named Begonia. She loves flowers and is wearing a sweet wreath of freshly picked flowers. She's also wearing a pretty pink bow for Easter. I also love her little heart nose and her chubby little cheeks. 

This is a fun little mini quilt that can be used as a mug ...

Project QUILTING 12.6: Ab Intra from Goer

Six for six! This little quilt completes season 12 of Project QUILTING. And true to form, I waited until the last 24 hours of the one-week challenge to get started. And as you know, the later I start, the smaller the quilt gets. ;-)

This week's challenge is Ab Intra, or "from within." At first glance, I think the theme is a little intimidating. But really, there are so many options. So far, there have been a variety of deep, personal, or lighthearted submissions.

It was hard for me to roll over the one year mark of being home during ...

A Lucky Gnome from Quilt Doodle Doodles


 I just realized that St. Patty's day is tomorrow and I have no decorations except for a tinsel shamrock that I have on my front door. So I spent the afternoon in my sewing room creating a sweet gnome that's a little bit Irish. It's a fun fusible applique design and I really enjoyed making it. I bet if you dig thru your fabric you can find some green.... leprechaun green fabric. I made my leprechaun with a white beard, but a red/orange beard would be very cute too! I used fabrics from my Marcus Fabrics ...

12 Days of Christmas, Day 4 from Quilt Doodle Doodles...

 


Day 4

This year I feel more Grinchy than Cindy Lou Who-ish.... often muttering " I must find some way to stop Christmas from coming.... is Christmas coming?" I'm just crabby about limited to no gatherings so it's not feeling like Christmas. No Christmas parties.... no snow on the ground, it melted a couple weeks ago. Boo hoo hoo hoo..... Hubby and I took the dogs walking last night and enjoyed the Christmas lights. That was fun and felt normal. I've been doing a lot of online shopping and have to admit it's nice, but I do ...

Shorter days and holiday activities can make it feel like there isn’t time to make handmade gifts (it’s already December!). While tackling a brand new quilt may ...

Dreaming of Spring from Quilt Doodle Doodles...

 My dad had a family of gnomes that graced the front of his house many years ago. I actually made them in ceramics class and I know that he loved them. We all loved them. Unfortunately they disappeared one night, dad was so sad that someone would take them. I remember driving around our little town looking for them. I'm sure some high school kids thought it would be funny to take them as a prank. When ever I see gnomes, I think of the set that I made for mom and dad. I love garden gnomes. I have ...
