My Sewful Retirement

A Quilting Journey

Pieceful Weekend

Happy Monday!

I had this past weekend entirely free – no catching up on orders – no rush requests. Believe me it doesn’t happen often.

The cold and windy forecast made it easy to stay inside and sew. 🙂

On the first of February I pulled out my quilty home decor items used to celebrate the month of love. I was surprised to find out I didn’t have a quilted table runner designated for February! Needless to say I had to make something quickly.

Last year I made this 18 inch XO pillow using a tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Company.

I used yardage instead of a charm pack as shown in the video tutorial. The name of the quilt block is “Road To Tennessee” which is a very easy and beginner friendly. When you combine 4 quilt blocks it forms the “X” and the secondary pattern is the “O” — the hourglass design is the center of the “O”.

I decided to use the same design for my table topper but wanted the X and O to stand out individually.

I used pink and gray  fabrics from my stash. One of the pink prints is tie dyed and and looks kinda funny in the pictures.  The topper is 34 x 34 inch square.

 

My other February quilty projects from last year.

Jan 2016 UFO-Paper Hearts

The heart quilt was a kit from the Fat Quarter Shop using French General fabrics.

 

I created this mini quilt with the half square triangle scraps from the heart quilt.
