Making this little table mat was so simple!
I used a left over block from THIS QUILT 👇

All I needed to do was to add a row of half square triangles!
I love that I was able to use a scrappy assortment of reds and greens.

I also made a simple doily pillow this week.

It’s all on my youtube channel.

This is a busy time and year
And MAKING THINGS is the busy part I LOVE!

Monday making - scraps and christmas

 I added scraps to 1 yard of cute fabric this week.
So simple.
So sweet.

It's all flannel and only TWO layers.
Not quite a quilt...but warm and cozy all the same.

How I made it -  HERE  😉

 I also made a few Christmas coasters.

These will be great for stockings and quick gifts for friends.
Add some coffee or cocoa.....or???

monday making -

This week I worked with a lot of half square triangles!

I love this table mat.
It took me a while to see the OOPSIE on the upper left side.
Not super noticeable UNTIL you notice it!

I also made a LOT of these blocks.

Here's a little mock up of what they'd look like in this position.

This pretty block is now a favorite!

Monday making - some finishing up

This week I was able to get my Christmas quilt top complete!
Quality time at the machine with a Quilt Sandwich!

I also did some machine quilting on this charity quilt.
Does your quilt guild have small quilts to finish?
They are a great opportunity to practice free motion quilting!

Monday making - using it ALL UP

This week I worked on using up some things in the sewing room.

I DO have quilting cotton.
I also have old denim pants and a bag of selvages I began saving a while back.

The two went hand in hand for a little POTHOLDER sewing!

Two squares of denim and some of those selvages to perk them up.
It was fun and something that I had to try.

If I make enough I’ll have one for everyone at Christmas!

I also added another block to my Christmas quilt along.
