Snowman Table Runners

Star snowman table runner I made and gave to my daughter. I used up a lot of scraps making this runner.
Snowman & pinwheel table runner:
Used all scraps in making this. I fused and blanket-stitched around the eyes and mouth circles. Supposed to be buttons, but thought that fabric would work better and wash better too.

Quilted Notebook Cover

I made a quilted notebook cover for my friend Tara's birthday. Tara loves "tea" so I did a play on words and wrote, "Tea is for Tara" on the cover with an appliqued teapot I made. The back has appliqued flowers in a teacup. Shown here opened to see the front & back view:

Denim Apron

I made this apron out of a denim fabric for my son. He cooks a lot, so I thought this would be a useful and practical gift to make him.

Quilted Birthday Banner

I made this birthday quilt for my grandson for his 2nd birthday, which was in November. The number of birthdays go up to 6 years. I added Velcro to the back of the numbers, so that with each year the number can be changed.

Pumpkin Table Topper Quilt

I made this last year. A project I started in my applique group. I used scraps for the log cabin border. Pin It Now!

Bleach Discharge on Fabric

Jeanne from my applique group taught us how to discharge on fabric using bleach and then over-dye it. I just drew this sunflower freehand with the bleach pen, then painted the dye on the bleached parts. I tried this technique on a navy blue fabric. I took this photo before I overdyed it.

Flowers in a Pot Quilt

I made this quilt several months ago. The leaf blocks that surround the quilt were blocks from a group I used to belong to where we exchanged blocks. The appliqued flowers were inspired from a quilt that I saw in a book, but I changed it all and made it different. Pin It Now!

Felt Table Topper

I made this appliqued wool/rayon blend table topper. I handyed all the felt, except the dark navy blue background. Hand blanket stitched around each motif.

Tote Bag From Quilt Blocks

I made this tote bag from quilt blocks. The blocks were made by myself and a few other women from a group that I used to belong to where we each made several blocks and exchanged them with the group. There are 4 blocks on each side of this tote bag. I made the block with the brightly colored cats and used the same fabric in the bag's top and sides. I still have 18 blocks left and will make another tote bag that will be larger than this one. Pin It Now!

Halloween Quilt

I made this quilt last year in 2008.

Quilt For My Grandson

My grandson loves fire engines, police cars, helicopters, airplanes, tractors, etc. I had small amounts of fabric with vehicles in 3 colorways (red, blue, white), so I decided to make a small car/stroller quilt for his 2nd birthday in November. This is the quilt I made: I pieced the back of the quilt:
