Easy Curves Runner

This is a quilt-as-you-go project in which you make your own bias strips to cover the edges of the curves - no curved piecing required!

This rectangle pillow is from the pattern "Gina" by Bella Moon.

Ladybug Tea Cozy

Several months ago I was in London Drugs and saw the Ladybug Tea Drip Catcher which I bought.  Later that week I came across the ladybug fabric and knew I needed to make a tea cozy to go with it.

Nine Patch Variation

Size:  30 1/2" x 30 1/2"

This Nine Patch Variation is from the book "Start Quilting with Alex Anderson".

Tree Place Mats

I loved the tree fabric and made these placemats.  I changed the placement of the main fabric so when they're on the table there will be an illusion of movement from the place to place.  I also just found some dishes at Wal-Mart which will coordinate beautifully.

Reindeer Card Caddy

Size:  12 1/2" x 18"

The Christmas Card Caddy is by Patrick Lose and was in Fons & Porter's Quilting Celebrations Fall/Winter 2011.  The striped lower front is a pocket, perfect for cards or candy canes.

The Ho Ho Ho Screen is from the book "Jingle All the Way" by Art to Heart.  The Fireplace Tri Stand is by Ackfeld Manufacturing.

Lil' Twister

Twisting Pinwheels by CS Designs

This was a fun project.  You sew together charm squares, recut the blocks using the Lil' Twister ruler and sew them back together for instant pinwheels.
