Fall Placemats


Hello my friends. Today I have some fun little projects for you. A friend of mine loves my quilting, yet she doesn't quilt. She is very crafty and I know she could do it, we just live too far apart for me to help her. 

Well the other day she asked me for some fall place mats. I came up with these. I only made two and two more are on the way. We are doing a barter system for these. She sell Pampered chef and I am getting an Air fryer for the place-mats. I also sent her a turkey pillow cover...SHHHH, that's a surprise! 

I was thinking of making the next two place mats brown and green or brown and orange. Not sure yet. This is my own hodge podged pattern. I got the leaf from HERE. I used my perfect geese paper templates for the flying geese. These templates make flying geese perfect every time! No wonky geese. The fabric is all from my stash, I did not have to buy anything.

Perfect tips on the geese! 

I just love how these turned out. They look perfect on my table, LOL! I know my friend is going to love them. She should get the delivery today. 

I used a left over backing that I had used for another quilt. 

I just love how these turned out and hope to get a few for my table before the winter winds blow in. 

Here is a peek of the Turkey pillow cover that I made and sent as an extra. I can not find the finished photo. 

This is a pattern by Kristina Brinkerhoff Of Center Street quilts. She did a QAL in September. 

That is what is happening over here. Hope you are finding time to do the things you enjoy. Until I see you again, Wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide

Scrappy cross road.

 Hello my quilty friends. I have a finish for you today. This quilt also used up a bit of my scraps. I found the pattern over on Lori Holts -youtube channel. Lori has some great tips on organizing and how to cut up scraps. My scrap bin was over flowing, now if I push it down I can get the lid on.😂

This is a nice size quilt and it is a square. Nice big block. I made it 4 X4 blocks and with my scraps  I could of made it bigger. I just wanted to get it done to move on to other projects. 

I just love the bright colors with the black. 

I had it quilted in a modern pattern and the thread was tomato red. 

I also love that I can point to a fabric and tell you what quilt that it went into. A quilters Eye spy quilt. 

I used a simple taupe/gray fabric for the back and for the binding I used a black with small white polka dots. 

One last look. Thanks so much for stopping by. Until I see you again, Wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide

Hello my quilty friends. Hope you are all doing well. I have a new favorite quilt for you today.  This was in my UFO pile and I finished it. Sent it off to my friend to custom quilt it. I was lucky that she wanted to do a road trip, so she delivered it in person. 
There is two layers of batting and each butterfly pops. This pattern is by Edyta Sitar. I used batiks (layer cake) fabric for each applique butterfly and background. 

This is hanging up on a wall that  gets plenty of day light and I get to see it daily. 

A few close ups of the quilting. 

I am so happy with how this turned out and the quilting is lovely! 

Thank so much for stopping by and until I see you again. Wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide

Red, white and blue floral.

Hello my quilty friends. Hope you are all doing well and finding time to sew. As of now I have a visitor in town. My son is here and We are enjoying our time together. Boating, Fishing, playing board games. It is nice to have everyone together.  I did find a few minutes to get the last border on this quilt. I saw the Bee Patriotic quilt along with Lori Holt and thought the squares were super cute and I had the book Vintage Christmas. 

 This is one of my favorite blocks for the 12 that I made. I just love the fabrics. The fabric line I used was called Mackinaw Island by Minick and Simpson. Such a beautiful line, very hard to find. I bought a fat quarter about 3-4 months ago on line.

I was just tickled that I have the Vintage Chirstmas book and I could use it for something other than a Christmas quilt. Thinking outside of the box. I started to think, What about a Halloween quilt with orange and black fabrics?

A few close ups of my favorite blocks.

One last look at this fun Patriotic quilt. 

Wishing all my quilty friends in the USA a very happy and safe 4th of July. If you would like to see more of these fun quilts be sure to check out #Beepatrioticsewalong on Instagram. I love how creative some people got with their blocks. 
Until I see you again wishing you Quilty  Hugs~Heide

star pillows.

Hello my quilty friends, I have two pillows for you today.  A little bit of decor for the 4th of July. These chairs are in my breezeway and I always like to have a little something to add some color and these are perfect for July. The pattern is from Lori Holt- Bee in my Bonnet. I am doing her Bee Patriotic quilt along. The quilt is coming along and I am so excited about it. This pillow was a little extra on her blog. 
Here is a closer look at the dark blue one, all made with scraps. This cutie is headed down the road to my friends front porch. Now I did not use any of Lori's sew simple shapes. She has a few other cute little projects on I am a paper crafter and happen to have circle and star dies. 
Here is a closer look at the teal, red and blue pillow, I 💗 this one.  Again all made with scraps. 
This is what I will display in breezeway.  For the back I did a simple envelope closer so I can just slip it on and off. 
One more look before I go at the two pillows together. 
 Hope you have a safe and happy 4th of July. I know i will be having to put my poor Guinness in the basement, due to the fireworks. The poor old guy it terrified of them. 
Thanks for stopping by and until I see you again wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide

Two fabric Bargello.

Hello my quilty friends. I have a new finished quilt for you today. It is a 2 fabric Bargello. I used about 1.5 yards of  Kaufman Effervescence.  The second fabric is 1.5 yards of an ombre fabric. Sorry I do not remember what I used or where I got it.  I used a 3rd fabric  in the border and 4th on the back. 
Here is a look at the Effevescence fabric. You can also see the quilting which was done by my friend at Creative Stitching Services,  she does beautiful work. 
Here is a closer look at the quilting. I did use a pattern and I will not post the pattern name, you can google two fabric bargello. I just did not like it, too many pages and I did not think it made sense.  I ended up doing my own thing to  make the pattern.
I carried a bit of the check pattern out into the border. 
A peek of the backing. This was to be a wall hanging and I am crying.....I do not have a wall space for it. 
One last look before I go. Thanks for stopping by. Until I see you again, Wishing you Quitly Hugs~Heide
