Two more finishes

My daughter and I bought fabric in October when we were in Duluth.  She wanted some everyday placemats so we coordinated some fabric and I got them finished for Christmas.

I made 8 of these, 4 for her and 4 for
her brother.

All 8 stacked up.

I also finished a tablerunner.  I received this kit as a gift from 3 wonderful friends and thought I should get at it soon.  The pattern is called "Pat's Favourite Table Runner"  and it is from The Art of the Quilt.  It went together rather quickly and was fun to make.

Pat's Favourite Table Runner

I have started to quilt my hunter star quilt and I have put together a new Christmas Table Runner.  More later on those.

I can't believe that I won another prize

I got an email yesterday that I had won another prize on the "Blog Hop Party".  This time it comes from Espritpatch's blog.  I won a book "Quilting with Beads".

I have never used beads in my quilting so this will be something new for me to try.

Fabulous Fractures is Quilted

I finished my Fabulous Fractures and used the same fabric for the backing that I used to make the fractured quilt.  I bought all the fabric in this wall hanging in Paris France this past August.

It is hanging on the door of my new sewing room.

This is the original fabric.

Twelve days of Christmas

I bought this panel a few years ago and just put it away and sort of forgot about it.  I pulled it out and decided to get it finished for this Christmas.  It is suppose to be a wall hanging but it is 45 x 57 so I would need a very large wall to hang it on.

I had downloaded the instructions when I bought the panel and I am glad that I did since it may not be available now.  I took the panel out and when I went to cut it to size it was crooked, and there was not way that I could see to make it straight and not lose too much of the panel.  I took it to the Wednesday needle group and a couple of the gals really helped me out.  We ended up stretching the panel by pulling on the corners.  It worked.

I only bought the large panel and when
I went to put it together I discovered that I needed corner stones.

I didn't realize that I was suppose to buy 2 panels.
I found these poinsettias in my stash.
They match really well since there are poinsettia in the corners of the panel.
