Fall Quilted Tablerunner


With a Flash

 

Without a Flash

I made this table runner for a “Quilting Buddie”.  I hope she likes it. It is an original design. Something I kind of just came up with. I used a green variegated thread for the leaf design in the border. I used a brown to quilt in the diagonal lines.

 

3D Flower Tote Bag

I signed up for a swap to make a tote bag with flowers on it. The panel had to have some kind of appliquéd flowers. The pattern called for hand bag handles however I didn’t find any that were just right. So I just made my own handles. The inspiration for the 3D flowers came from a quilt I saw at a quilt show (the only one I have ever been too) back in 2007. In the outer border of the quilt was a vine all the way around the quilt with 3D flowers. It was beautiful and has stuck with me waiting for the right project. I sat down with some 4 inch squares and started folding. Now I just have to make one for myself. The bag is good sized. About 17 inches wide and 14 inches tall.

The other side of the bag is the same. There are 10 flowers total. I used ribbon for the stems.

Flower Wall Hanging

I made this wall hanging for a swap. The theme was flowers. I pondered what to do. I knew I wanted  to do something different. This is what I came up with. I appliquéd the vase on using steam light and then satin stitched the edge. I wanted a plain color for the vase. Now I wish I would of done some fancy stitching on the vase. It seems so blah. I stitched the flowers on and then glued buttons or beads for the center of the flowers. The binding was the inspiration for the project. I had a small amount of this flower fabric. It is modern with big flowers. I pulled the colors of the flowers from the print. The finished wall hanging measures about 24 inches squares. I free motion quilted in the background space with a leaf pattern.

My Quilting Buddies Mystery Quilt Final Clue

Here is the final step for the mystery quilt that I designed and hosted on My Quilting Buddies. It was a lot of fun. If you make one please email me with a picture. I would love to see it.

The flash washed out the color in this picture. I will take a better picture later and share it. In this picture you can’t tell that there are pinks in the quilt.

Black and White Tote Bag

I made this tote bag for a swap on My Quilting Buddies. I loved it so much I had a hard time mailing it. I hope Deb in Montana loves it as much as me. If not please send it back. LOL. It was a very generously sized bag. Great for taking to pick up some groceries or going to the library to get some books. It is about the same size as the diaper bag I currently use. There is one pocket on the front and 6 pockets inside.
