Autumn Diamond Runner

February 9th 2014

This simple runner consists of Half Square Triangles aligned into diamond shapes. You can probably get it done in an evening. Mine went off without a hitch, clocking in at just over 4 hours!

I really love the “Sunset” palette it has. It was fun to play with the fabrics and coordinate them in just the right way.

I did a tight stipple for the quilting wanting to cover as much space as possible.  I used in a light orange thread and it was magical how it “changed” color over each of the different diamonds.

Quilting Christmas…

December 16th 2013

Well, it feels like an eternity since I’ve blogged, I know I am neglecting you but sheesh! So much to get done and all in the same week! I have been busy as a bee in the Craft Corner

and other corners around town, like at church, the mall, my kitchen

it’s definitely been a busy quilting year, but I am not done. I recently just finished these. Using the Firework pattern by Camille Roskelley this table runner is for my big sister, started it this summer!

This table topper is for my little sister (yes we are all grown now!) The Christmas Fabric is Santa’s Workshop by Riley Blake, Niner pattern by Camille Roskelley. Basically it’s a nine patch arranged in Granny Square style. So easy and fun. Definitely will make another one of those!

This one is all wrapped up but I can’t show it to you yet…..

And I’m still working on the Vintage Holiday quilt but I’m already quilting it!  This is the biggest one I’ve done as of yet and I am learning about large quilts!  Making the “JUMBO” sandwich and basting and getting the backing together AND SMOOTH was no easy task! The quilting is coming along slowly, I need more “support” so it doesn’t have drag as I move it around. So fun!

Here are the blocks before they were snowballs!

And with that, I’m going to leave you until next time, when I show you the whole thing!
