Busy Stitching from Cheryl's Teapots2Quilting

I've been busy since I got back from Texas, 2 weeks ago.  I took a class, with my large quilt guild, on Friday, June 9th.  It was a Watermelon table topper.

You can make 12 different table toppers with this book.  The July topper even has an alternate version, for Canadians, using a maple leaf instead of a flag.  We made June's topper, the Watermelon.

First, I want you to know that I did NOT take a vintage machine to this class.  I didn't even take a ...

Hexagon Colour Wheel Mug Rugs Patterns from Cut Stitch and Piece

I'm introducing three new mug rug patterns to brighten your home for spring. The bright primary colours against white, black,  and grey is a crisp combination. You could use these as pot holders as well as mug rugs. They would look lovely in a modern kitchen. They would also be a great gift for an artist or art student. This is a good project for quilters just learning to foundation piece.

Table Runners from Cheryl's Teapots2Quilting

I've been busy stitching this week.  Other than buying matching zippers for the Project Bags, I haven't worked on those anymore. 

At my March guild meeting, someone put a completed table runner top on the freebie table.  I grabbed it quickly.

It was time to finally baste and quilt this.  I pulled some red polka dot fabric for the backing, and some red Kona for the binding, and proceeded to straight line quilt this.

Luck o' the Irish Table Runner: Celtic Twist block tutorial from Cut Stitch and Piece

Welcome some Luck o' the Irish into your home this St. Paddy's day with this elegant Celtic Twist table runner. My mother was Irish, so I have a strong affinity for anything Celtic. I particularly love Celtic knots. So, just in time for St. Patrick's Day, I completed my Celtic Twist table runner for my coffee table. I'm a big fan of neutrals and used the Woodland Wonder fabric line by Sarah Summers.

Engrossed in Elephants! from Cheryl's Teapots2Quilting

My challenge quilt is consuming me!  It is pretty much the only thing I've been working on lately.  I seem to eat, sleep and dream elephants.  Almost every technique I'm using on this quilt is new to me.  I'm making things up as I go. 

my design
I took my drawing in to be enlarged (that was a debacle).  It was supposed to be ready in 2 days, but, 4 days later, they hadn't even started on it.  It took them a couple of hours to finally do what I asked, and enlarge the elephant to ...

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.

7 Easy Steps to Create an Off The Wall Table Runner from Adele Mogavero

Making an Off the wall table runner is simple and fun

Just 7 simple steps to make an awesome fun table runner

  1. Gather The Fabrics
  2. Half the fun begins with gathering the fabrics.

    For this custom Off The Wall Runner, I am gathering fabrics in the pink/purple family. But it will also be sprinkled with yellows, greens, and blues.

    A piece like this can have a lot of colors…ones that you wouldn’t necessarily put together in a quilt,

    The secret is using fabrics that are bursting with colors. (batiks and busy florals are perfect)
    Than pull some of the colors from those bursting fabrics – even if they clash ...

Little Surprises from Mountain Quiltworks

Here's a little table runner that I finished up prior to my knee replacement surgery way back in March. I didn't get around to posting it, so here it is today! As I was making this runner, I didn't really like the fabrics in the batik charm pack. But now that it's together and quilted, I'm thoroughly enjoying it. Each time I walk by, I smile at the quilting, and the border, and the little

Another gift done...the Bee's Knees from The Cozy Quilter

Last Summer, during the Row by Row experience shop hop, I picked up a pattern for a row at Quilty Pleasures in Orleans, Ontario.  Although I did not make a row quilt, I decided that this row would make a great table runner for my MIL for Christmas.  Her father was a bee keeper so this pattern was perfect for a gift for her.  I dug through my yellow stash and picked out fabrics for the hexagons. 

The bees are fused onto the background pieced hexagons. I quilted around each hexagon by machine. 

Since bees like flowers, I decided to ...

Design Wall Monday - small finishes from My Sewing Room

I was on a roll this weekend, trying to finish up some small projects that have been cluttering up my sewing space.  I finished 3 small items, including machine quilting. Yay me!!  Check out what others are doing at Design Wall Monday 
This grey/white/yellow pillow is made from leftovers from a chevron baby quilt I made last spring. I had extra HSTs left after finishing the quilt and kept thinking they would make a great pillow.  And they did make a nice pillow, along with a strip of the flower print added to make ...

Cozy Winter Table Toppers + Giveaway! from Busy Hands Quilts

Two winter table toppers made with jelly roll strips.  One quilt moves from light in the center to dark in the outer logs, and the other quilt moves from dark in the center to light in the outer logs.  I did this to make full use of all of the jelly roll strips.  

The fabric is Christmas Pure and Simply by Nancy Halvorsen for Benartex.  Don'tcha cringe when the fabric is cut so crookedly in a jelly roll?  

I pieced the binding so it matched the fabric it was next to, and this isn't as difficult as I ...

Winter Wonderland with Island Batik from MooseStash Quilting

It's that time of year, and the new batiks are hitting the shelves.

These new ones, just fill my heart with joy!
I have to admit, that my favorite colorway in this line, is the center one. There is just something about that "denim" look that speaks to me. 
Could it be that endless rows on jeans in my closet???

Yes, that denim color proved to be the perfect background 
for this jolly ole guy!
He comes from the "Art to Heart" Christmas Favorites book.

While quilting his beard those reindeer seemed to just melt away.

Seasonal table runners & Halloween from My Sewing Room

I made over a dozen yards of binding today to use on some seasonal table runners. These are both done with the 60 degree technique.  Another 60 degree Thanksgiving runner is only half quilted so far, but there is enough brown binding for that one too when I get it quilted.
Working on the hand stitching will be a good activity tonight while handing out candy to the trick or treaters. We usually see 80-100 kids between about 5:00 pm (right about now) and 8:30.  There is a street about 2 blocks from us that get about 1500 ...
