My Sewful Retirement

A Quilting Journey

Small Finishes Using Pre-Cuts

Happy Monday!

I hope everyone had a great weekend.  This past week was hectic, it is the busy season for my Etsy Shop.

I did manage to find a little time here and there for “me sewing” 🙂

I began piecing my Gardenvale  Dizzy Daisy wall hanging in January of this year and finally finished it earlier this week.  The quilt measures 35 x 35 inches and definitely added some color to this room. I love the funky retro floral prints in this line!

I used 9 ten inch squares from my Gardenvale by Jen Kingwell layer cake. I made my wall hanging before Missouri Star offered a tutorial for the same block. If you’d like to make one for yourself here is the link to the YouTube video.

We recently purchased a new washer and dryer – I had to make runners to cover them! I had two charm packs of Basic Mixologie by Studio M for Moda, I felt would be perfect for this quick project.  I love the colors and the cool modern prints .

Super easy block to make — the runner measures  approximately 18 x 36.  I used 36 charms. Twelve of the charms are cut in half and then sewn to the remaining 24 charms. I alternated the rotation of the blocks to make the arrangement more interesting.

Second runner is a simple coin stack with borders.  Measures 14 x 32. I used 9 charms for the coin stack with 4.5 inch borders.

What do you think?

 

With the remaining charms I made a color wheel dresden.   I really love it!

Quilt measures 22 x 22 inches.

Until next time….
