monday making

I goes along with the quilt block I shared last week.

I also DEALT with a large stack of fabric.
It came in a box along with a bad odor.

I quickly washed, dried and folded it all.

Do you say YES to free fabric???

I enjoy the adventure new fabric brings!
You never know what quilt or project will emerge!

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.

Monday making- baby quilt

I ran into an old quilt of mine yesterday.

I made it for my first granddaughter 10 years ago!

Today I added a short HOW TO on my 
Youtube channel.
The blocks are small drunkards path blocks
That I made using HOMEMADE templates.

monday making - simple sewing

Sometimes you need to make something EASY!

Some leftover denim in my sewing room
Was staring at me...
And I decided to listen.

The denim became a potholder in NO TIME!!

The Denim would have been a bit boring without this CUTE fabric!

I also added a new block to my little Christmas quilt along.
Video on my channel..  HERE
And pattern on the sidebar.

Monday Making - uneven 9 patch

This week I added my alternate block to my Christmas quilt.
It is a simple uneven 9 patch.
I really like the green plaid from my computer design.
Too bad I don’t have that pretty green plaid in my stash!

I have so much fabric......
It’s tempting to go looking for the fabric in my dreams at the store....
And not use the fabric in my stash!!!

If you’d like to sew along with me..
I will be posting one video each week
And adding a pattern to the sidebar as we go along.
Happy sewing!

monday making - Christmas sampler block 2

This week I added a new block pattern to my
Little Christmas quilt along.
I love red and green together...don't you?

My quilt along is HERE on youtube.

I plan on sharing 8 different quilt blocks for this sampler.
7 sampler blocks and ONE block that alternates with them all.
This is not an exclusively CHRISTMAS quilt....
but red and green seem to fit in to the season.
