Here it is – the pattern for the placemats! It’s so simple and easy. Really – 100% a project for beginners…
You can download the PDF here.
Be sure to check back on Monday – it’s Sew, Mama, Sew’s Giveaway Day and I’ll be taking part. Hope you all have a great weekend!
I finished up the placemats that I made for the LAMQG holiday swap. Chris got them last night and she loved them! She had asked for something for her kitchen with blues, neutrals and a vaguely beachy vibe.
They are so simple and quick to sew up. I used linen for the background fabric, Konas Teal and Coal and the light blue is a Moda Crossweave.
The simple dense straight line quilting makes them lie nice and flat.
I’ll post a little pattern for these later this week. They would make a great Christmas gift for a friend!
I’m working on my holiday swap for the LAMQG meeting on Monday evening. We all picked names so we’re making something for a specific person. It really makes for a great swap when you know the recipient…
Just a peek for now! More on that soon.
And check out the blocks that I’ve gotten back for Bee Imaginative.
Pretty great, right? I can’t wait to put this quilt together once I get all of the blocks… it’s going to be a good one!
Hope you all enjoyed your long weekends! Here, the sewing machine has been busy but nothing to show right now. Though I do have some finished craftiness…
I knit socks! Cozy pretty socks that fit really well. This was my first time knitting socks and it won’t be my last.
By the way – I’m finally on twitter, follow me if you wanna!
Thank you all for your nice comments about my quilt and the pattern being published! I have lots of plans for many patterns being available in the future but lots of leg work ahead of me before then.
Anyhow – getting down to business! The random number generator picked lucky number 41! Kate C. keep an eye out for an email from me!
Happy Monday to you all!
Have you all seen Quilt Scene?? So much great stuff in here!
I was lucky enough to have a quilt pattern published in it!
And the Modern Quilt Guild also got a nice mention!
I made this quilt a while ago… so nice to finally be able to blog about it! I used a lot of Moda Crossweaves in it. They are so beautiful! A couple more photos…
Want a copy of the magazine? Just leave me a comment. I’ll pick a winner on Monday!
And it’s back to the sewing machine for me… Hope you all have great weekends ahead of you!
Some bee blocks for Liz.
And Beans overseeing things.
Hope you all had a great weekend! I spent mine in the sewing room, how about you?
Yes! A space quilt! A while back, the designer for Etsy’s amazing space themed conference room got in touch. Would I like to make a space quilt to be hung in the room? Needless to say, this was a daunting task. But I love a challenge so I took it on.
How to make a quilt that is a glimpse of “space” (as in outer space – this was not a theoretical space…it had to be outer space) yet also keep my aesthetic? It was no easy task!
Think I managed ok? Stars or spaceships?? It’s up to you! I was thinking stars (you know – like streaking by ’cause you’re at warp speed, right??) but my husband though spaceships so I figured that’s part of the idea – interpret it as you’d like.
And white binding! Not something I’ve otherwise done but I thought it worked well to frame the dark blues and blacks… I used a lot of Quilters Linen in this. Thought that it was nice for add texture but not a patterned fabric.
There’s more photos of the finished conference room here!
Katie, a friend from The LAMQG is having a baby girl! I made her this cute simple quilt.
Nice and pink but some green mixed in!
I did some fun and easy curly quilting. I really like this simple and whimsical quilting for a baby quilt. Keeps it nice and soft.
And a simple back – I do love those Wildwood trees!
