Dash - a finish for donation

 I just finished this quilt.  It is from a 3 yard quilt design called  " Dash ".  My version finished at 42 x 53.  It has cotton batting and a soft gray fleece on the back.   I used the blocks for areas to sample feather designs.  I quilted it on my Janome sit down machine.  I will donate this one to the Heritage of Huntington nursing home.



and here is the view from the back

Snowman table mats

 I just finished these pretty little mats.  They measure about 16 inches across.  Binding 60 degree mitres for the hexagon shape is a nuisance on small items.  

I used the gocutter dies for the half circles, eyes, carrot nose and snowflake.  I winged it for the background shape to work on.  Actually I sized a hexagon template in EQ, printed it out, folded the printout in half and folded my fabric strip in half.  Then  I used a ruler to cut the side angles following the paper template.  Thank goodness for tools of the trade!



They're not gifted yet.  I'm waiting for someone to mention that they like them.  LOL  

In the meantime, I'm joining these fun linky parties.  Be sure to visit them to see what other creative quilters are sharing this week.

Christmas table runners & mats

 I've been spending time making some tablerunners for the Christmas season.  I have 3 finished, 2 adorable octagon topperss waiting to be quilted and a few more ideas printed and waiting to be done.  They are very time consuming considering their smaller size.


I bought this pattern at a quilt show in July.  I plan to make a few more of this style, with other elements replacing the trees.  The pattern is by Doghouse Designs.



This pattern is from Vicki's Crafts aka  knitbug2 .  I used soft batting for the beards to give it some texture.




I re-created this runner from an online photo.  It is a bit bold. I would like it better if the background fabric was more subtle.  


Now I've changed course and working on quilted hot pads and story books.  

I'm joining these linky parties this week.  Be sure to visit them to see what other creative quilters are sharing.
