Several Finishes this Week from The Cozy Quilter

This has been a week of finishes.  I finished the binding on the three table runners I quilted last Saturday.  My MIL has claimed this one.  It will look nice in her living room.  

The second runner will be given to a friend.

The third one will be donated to the church bazaar.

Next, I quilted and bound the baby quilt I showed last week.  I used some light green solid fabric for the binding.

The backing is some flannel I had in my stash.  I had to make it a bit wider so the orange stripe was added.  I ...

Cross Stitch, a Knitting Lesson and Some Binding from The Cozy Quilter

First things first...I found the hoop for my embroidery project!  I had put it somewhere for "safe-keeping" and then had forgotten where that was...until this week, when I was doing some fabric cutting and I looked up...My hoop was on the shelf at eye level.

Now, I can get my embroidery framed and hanging on the wall.  I wondered if anyone has any ideas for finishing the back of the you cut off all the excess fabric and leave it that way or do you cover up the back?  I put a piece of white ...

Mini Picket Fence Quilted Table Runners and Toppers! from Busy Hands Quilts

Mini Picket Fence is a smaller version of my full-size Picket Fence layer cake quilt pattern which has been super popular since its release several years ago.  The mini version uses charm packs to create fun little picket fence blocks, and the pattern includes 4 sizes - Small Topper, Small Runner, Large Topper, and Large Runner.  That's two rectangular sizes and two square sizes.  You know I want to make my patterns worth buying, so I give you loads of size options every time.

Celebrating the New Year in style with a bow tie table runner from Quilt Social

Time to celebrate! Well, almost. In yesterday’s post, I pieced the bow tie blocks and put together the table runner. The PFAFF quilt expression 720 will be doing all the work again today! Today I’ll quilt and bind the table runner.

To prepare the table runner for quilting, layer the top with batting. For the runner I fused batting to the top and then layered them on top of the backing, right side down. This let me avoid having pins to move as I quilted.

The first thing ...

Decorative stitches sparkle on black bow tie quilt blocks from Quilt Social

Are you ready to piece? This week is all about preparing for a party by making quilted table decor. In yesterday’s post I used decorative stitches to create stitched fabric. The stitched fabric will be used with a neutral fabric to create a quilted table runner. The PFAFF quilt expression 720 will help me sew the blocks together with precision.

Thanksgiving and Stitching, etc. from Cheryl's Teapots2Quilting

I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving.  It was just hubby, our oldest son and me for Thanksgiving.  We still ate well.

our Thanksgiving feast

I've been busy stitching even though I don't have much to show to prove it.

The ladies ministry at church hosts an ornament exchange each December.  The lady in charge of decorating decided that we needed matching table runners as part of the decorations for the tables and I was drafted to make them.  She provided the white fabric with the gold ornaments, another lady provided the batting and I provided the ...

Scrappy Fall Table Runner from Needle and Foot

I have a fun finish to share with you all today. I have been doing a little collaborating with Carole of From My Carolina Home for the past couple of weeks. She is hosting her fabulous Autumn Jubilee which happens each fall season. One of her projects is a set of placemats which I supplied the fabric for. You can check those out here – they are really pretty. Carole does an amazing job creating tablescapes – whenever I see one, I wish I was sharing a meal with her!

Some fun, quick and easy finished projects! from Living4Quilting

Here are some projects that I've been working on last week.  I finished this quilt  and I really like it.  I don't normally like square quilts but I like this one because of the beautiful flower fabric on it.  It really looks like Fall to me. 

Here's three other table runners I finished.  These are for Christmas this year. I'll keep one and give the other two to my sweet daughter-in-laws. 

These are the table runners I made at the guild workshop I went to on Saturday last weekend.  This pattern is referred to as a ...
