Can you believe this? September will be over a week from tomorrow!! I must be having too much fun or something - the time is just flying by!
Last year I bought the Quilt Sampler magazine as I always do and in the Spring/Summer 2017 edition, on page 78, I saw a table runner named "Topsy Turvy" that I really liked. It was from Quilt Haven on Main in Hutchinson, Minnesota. It only took me a little over a year to finally get around to making it. It is a paper piecing pattern - not my favorite thing, but not too bad. First I made one out of civil war reproductions.
Then I decided to make one with Christmas fabrics and I just finished that top.
I also decided to make this "Welcome Wagon Quilted Door Hanger" that is in the Simple Graces book by Kim Diehl on page 88. I love her designs and I decided to make a couple of these to keep one and give one away. This is the front section that I have done for 2 of them. I still have to put them together and make tassels for them.
Does your local quilt shop carry this magazine - Country Pleasures? It is free at our LQS and it has quilting events (and other crafts) as well as a free block each month.
This is from the May 2018 copy and I decided to use it in a Christmas lap quilt that I am making.
The green blocks are the Disappearing Pinwheel Trinket Box and the red blocks are the Disappearing Pinwheel Roundabout from the June 2018 issues. The blocks go together quickly and are 14" square, so I didn't need to make a lot of them. The lap quilt measures 55" x 55". It isn't quilted yet.
Here's a close-up of the fabrics.
l'm sorry I've been so slack at blogging recently. I've just been so busy with quilting for craft shows as well as family. This next week there is a large quilt show in Portland - Northwest Quilting Expo - that I plan to attend, so I will have pictures to post.
Have a great week!
