As promised, here is the tutorial for the wonky table runner I shared in last week’s blog post :). It was really fun to make, and easy too, plus it used a ton of scraps….a win-win-win combination in my book! Continue reading
Hello there, remember me? I’m the person responsible for putting out fun, new blog posts about once a week….uhm, yeah, sorry about that, have gotten a little waylaid lately.
I don’t know about you, but our summer is just flying by! Someone summed Continue reading
Our summer has been super fun, but also super busy with 2 birthdays, plus visits from friends and family, which has not allowed me much time to be creative! Therefore the lack of a blog post last week ;).
This week I have Continue reading
Hello and happy weekend!
I love weekends, don’t you? We always start our day with a cup of tea and a bagel with cream cheese and it’s the best way to start the weekend! I just love the relaxed feel and the possibility that the weekend brings!
I am sad to report Continue reading
Time for part 3 of our little sew-along…but no worries if you have not finished with part 2! Part 3 is very easy and straightforward and I thought I would make it available just in case anyone needed it already 😉
Last time you received your embroidery patterns and this week I’m just going to explain your next step. By the way, if you are just joining in, you can find the instructions for part 1 here, and part 2 here.
So if you have completed all your “homework” ( hahahaha!) you should now have 9 blocks…4 embroidered ones and 5 pieced ones.
Trim all your blocks to 5 inches square and decide which way you want to orient your embroidered blocks….if you are going to hang your quilt on the wall you probably want to have all your embroidery facing the same way. If you are going to use it on a table, you might want to face your embroidery outwards.
Now sew your blocks together. ( I used my walking foot for this step because my embroidery has batting behind it and this ensures that my fabric feeds through evenly).
I sewed mine together in rows ( top, middle, bottom) first, and then sewed the rows together and because I have batting behind my embroidered blocks I pressed my seams open (for less bulk later on when I’m quilting ).
I decided that my quilt will be used as a table topper so have all my appliques facing out.
There, all done for this week. That was easy, wasn’t it? Next week I will share how to finish this project up 😉
Until next time!
Just a super quick little blog post today… Continue reading

Recently I needed a quick quilted project for a friend. I had seen a quilt made with these types of blocks, but they were not in the size ( not the blocks, nor the quilt) that I was looking for. So I thought to myself: “Why not make blocks in a size that works for my needs?” and I came up with this really fast and easy project. Continue reading
