This is some of the things I made this past year. They are reversible. I did the quilting on my Phaff and, and as you can see, I still have a long way to go...... The octogon shape is so darn easy and fun. You can make it just about any size you want so I tried a couple of different sizes.
A couple of place mats, runner, etc.
Oh I love the mittens, hats, & scarves, winter print. Must be one you had in your stash, I've not seen it anywhere.
Those are neat Gloria. I love doing the hexagon ones too. Most of mine have been given away - wish I had taken pictures....
How neat that the Fiesta Ware matches all your colors.
This is a Christmas one made with Laurel Burch fabric. I love Laurel Burch stuff!! So bright and cheerful. Yes, Mittsy, my Fiesta Ware goes with most everything. I love the colors. I decided to use a silly Christmas cat for this pic. It is almost as much fun taking pics as it is making this stuff.... Almost. lol
Neat mats. How are you doing the outside binding? I can see the outer edge and then a bit more central on a parallel, but are you using a fabric strip or another technique? I know that you can do borders by sewing face to face and then inverting the piece on a qyuilt, but have only done bindings even for the baby quilts and the one runner I did.
It looks like they were pieced, then turned then stitched to do the quilting of the layers together, no binding.
Yes, mittsy, you are right. It would be easy to quilt them and then put the binding on, but this way works also. You could add another color with binding. Hmmmm..... I may just have to give that a try. lol
I love these. What I would like to know is where do I find this pattern? I would love to make some of them for my kitchen.
I'll check on the pattern for you. My e-mail is across town from my house.... I use my husbands computer for online stuff. We're separated so we live about five miles from each other. We get along soooo much better this way....
Thanks for checking on the pattern. I would love to know where it's from or how to get one. Just love these. Cute as can be.
SewSassee, I found the pattern you are interested in. It's called 'Quick and Easy Table Topper & Runner' #103 designed by Genni Lehmann of Lehmann Quilting www.LehmannQuilting.com phone 651-322-7701
e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org I bought the pattern at the quilt store I was working in here in Arizona. They are no longer in business..... ;( That was about a year and a half ago that I bought it. It was a very popular pattern so hopefully she is still making them. I think I'll look it also. Good luck!
SewSassee, I just checked out her web site and it is there. Oh, my, there are a lot of things there...... I didn't look around much, just to see if I could find that pattern. Didn't want to get into trouble!!!
Gloria, do you have something you would like that I could trade you for some 5 inch blocks of your kitty fabrics? I'm working on an I-spy , collecting fabric for it now. I have cat fabric, and I have some cat & dog prints as well. Let me know, OK?
I would love to trade 5" squares of cat fabric with you!!!! I'm planing on making an I Spy quilt with them also... Great minds think alike! LOL
Do you want anything besides cats? Cats & dogs? Anything else? I would love to trade with you! If your fabric is GOOD fabric, you might not be interested in mine. Lots of mine was just $4 or $5 stuff from JoAnn's or Wal-mart. I just don't want you to be disappointed if you have higher quality quiling fabric.
Hey, I have stuff from Jo-ann's and Wal-mart also...... Because I've 'worked' at three different quilts shops over the years I have a LOT of fabric from them. Have also bought lots of fabric from Hancocks. If it has a cat on it I'll love it and buy it no matter where I find it..... So don't worry. In other words I'm not a fabric snob. LOL I also have a few with cats and dogs so more would be just fine.
Oh good, I'll try and cut some tonight. Do you want 5 x 5, or do you have another size in mind for yours? When possible do you want a WOF of 5"? let me know! Can't wait to get this rolling!
Pat, 5x5 will be fine, and 5xWOF also. Can never have to much kitty fabric. Well,........ maybe....... I will start cutting tomorrow. Big smile here!
