Christmas Wreath Mini Quilt

A little finish this weekend that has me ready for December:


My last couple of quilts, I have tried a new binding method that I've seen a lot lately on the internet. After you sew your binding to the top of the quilt, you fold the binding to the back and top-sticth, but while still looking at the top. It requires a lot of pinning and can be frustrating, but I think the result looks very nice.


I love the tight quilting in the negative space only.

Black, White, and HOT PINK!

Just want to show off these pictures I just got from my niece who just finished this quilt. Isn't it fun? The minky on the back looks heavenly, too. This was actually showcased in a county fair last week. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, my niece is eight!




Nice job, Josie. It's beautiful!

Copycat Fall Table Runner

A Fall runner of mine recently sold that I was just starting to think I needed to keep for myself. I decided to replicate it as closely as I could with different, but similar fabric. I used scraps from from other runners I made last year.

Striped Halloween Table Runner

Just wanted to show off today's finish for the shop. I found a fat quarter of this adorable graveyard print at the local quilt shop for half price and couldn't pass it up. I used another fat quarter I had of an orange print from the Terrain fabric line and striped it with some white Kona cotton. That's it. Super simple.



My free-motion quilting design was inspired by the amazing Elizabeth Hartman. You can read more about her quilting style here.
