During a Quilters for Comfort Table Runner swap, a picture posted of a topper that was mailed out caught my eye. Further information noted that the topper was from Sew Easy Strata Star 3 patter by Ruthann Eckersley. She sells the pattern on-line. It was so much fun, I am looking forward to my next Strata Star.
This is what happened when I found this cute butterfly fabric to use for the charity quilt this month. However, what happened was not what I started out to construct. I put the fabrics in a stack and started cutting out strips with the rotary cutter. Well, cut one was fine, but cute two should have been a different size......so I ended up with bordered squares. Even then I had to raid the stash to get enough borders and blocks to make the size needed.
I think it turned out great, even though it is not at all what I planned on creating. It is one of those that I had a hard time letting loose of. But it should be in Oregon at a Children's Hospital with many prayers attached as it was made.
Here is a bright summer weight quilt. I used no batting in my windows. Just fabric and thread on this one. I used the Circle Magic template and instructions which I purchased from Missouri Quilt Company. You can find a tutorial there too.
I used fabric from my stash many years ago when I cut the circles and sewed them. Many were not even tur Ned yet when I came back to the this project.
These two quilts are for my customer's twin daughters as part of their HS graduation gifts.
They were made using Too Cool T-Shirts instructions.
No stabilizer on the shirts. And it really worked. Yeah!
I have been working hard on a project for a customer but I cannot post it yet. I made this runner Friday evening to see if I could get it to make an "s". Maybe I will try another one in paper rather than fabric this time. But no loss. I love purple and Green.
I will finish this up this week along with several other projects.
These are the fabrics that went into the runner. Amazing how the runner looks versus the pieces of fabric. I think this is part of the reason I enjoy this patter so much. The pattern is Spicy Spiral Table Runner.
