Holiday Paisley

"Holiday Paisley"

Pattern:  Jewel Box Candle Mat
By:  Phillips Fiber Art
Size:  15.5" x 15.5"

Main fabric & binding:  Holiday Flourish (6 Paisley) design #13644 Elizabeth Brownd for Robert Kaufman
Gold:  from my scrap bin

This is a free pattern from the Phillips Fiber Art website which I chose to appliqué onto a 15.5" x 15.5" background instead of finishing it with felt as instructed.

Happy Quilting!


Modern Refections in Lotus

Modern Reflection in Lotus

Pattern:  Modern Reflection
By:  Designs to Share with You
Size:  15.5" x 48"

Main fabric & binding:  Lotus #C9567 Timeless Treasures
Background & backing (dragonflies) 214 Solitaire by Maywood Studio

A peek at part of the back:

I meandered in all of the background and stitched in the ditch in the main print.

This was a quick and easy pattern that also includes placemats - I can see myself making them in the future & this runner again too!

Happy Quilting!

I did simple echo quilting following the star.

Serge & Sew Colour of the Month - November

Colour of the Month - November

Pattern:  Star Cluster
By:  Judy Martin 2011
Size:  12" x 12" (finished)

This month Serge & Sew's Colour of the Month fabric is the poppy fabric & they're asking that you use it to make a 12" x 12" block to be made into a donation quilt.  I chose the Star Cluster block by Judy Martin & chose to use the main fabric in two of the stars instead of making each one different.

Happy Quilting!


Triangle Frenzy Swirl in Happy Harvest

"Happy Harvest"

Pattern:  Triangle Frenzy Swirl
By:  Bunnie Cleland
Size:  20.25" x 59"

Main fabric:  Happy Harvest by Kelly Mueller of The Wooden Bear for Red Rooster Fabrics
Backing:  Robert Kaufman Fusions Mist
Thread:  King Tut 983

Using a border print makes this runner look complex without too much work.

I love the text!

I fussy cut some of the sunflowers from the scraps to make the borders for my label.

Happy Quilting!
