I'm cleaning house. This tangled bundle of scraps is about 99% Bonnie & Camille prints. Yes a whole drawer full! I'm giving them away this week. To enter, just tell me what you would like to do with these scraps. I will be drawing a winner on Sunday October 5th.
I love Camille Roskelley's fabrics and her Thimble Blossoms patterns, but often they are piecing nightmares for me. I have a drawer full, in fact two drawers full of her various fabric lines. I really have to see if I can get something done in them. The Red Letter Day pattern looked like a winner. Two out of nine blocks done. They are huge blocks, 22 1/2 inches square. I do love them!
I have been playing with the thought of hexagons for some time now. The English paper piecing thing is just not my idea of fun. I decided to try appliquéing these down with invisible thread. It worked really well. I plan to add a border, but have not decided whether it will be a table runner or a wall hanging.
This Longaberger basket only had a spring/summer seasons looking liner. To purchase a liner from the Longaberger company would cost me a pretty pricey amount. I've made basket liners before, but this one with the two moveable handles were a more complicated job.
I ended up studying the original basket and incorporating my usual basket liner pattern and finished this fall theme basket liner today. I guess I will need to think about a Christmas liner next. I use this basket on my buffet to gather up all the miscellaneous items that somehow make their way there. So I want it to blend in with the seasonal runners I use on the buffet.
Quite a while ago I put this quilt together. I had some left overs of Jeni Baker's Color Me Retro and decided to use them up. Just the finished top stayed on a hanger in my studio for several months. When I purchased my new Bernina 750Q, I decided to quilt it myself. That extra large throat on the machine made it a real easy project. I belong to a quilt guild in our area that asks you to make one completed quilt each year in your birthday month to give to their charity program. These quilts go to a number of very worthy charities. As September is my birthday month this one is my contribution.
I have decided to finish up several Wrenly Christmas runners that I have had cut out and ready to go for probably two years now. I work with several ladies and my grandson's teachers that I give runners for Christmas. It isn't a traditional Christmas fabric, but I love the print and the little bird in the pattern.
I just received these Sweet as Honey fabrics by Bonnie Christine. They are Art Galley fabric, which are so soft and feel so wonderful. I am not sure what I plan to do with them. Placemats for a gift sounds really nice. The thread is by Aurifil in a 28wt. It looks so good when used for the quilting. Aren't these two color just yummy with these fabrics?
