My Sewful Retirement

A Quilting Journey

Weekend Sewing

Happy Monday!

We didn’t have anything planned this past weekend so I spent my time sewing and watching football.

I had two charm packs of Valley by Sherri & Chelsi for Moda. I love the southwest vibe to this fabric line. I was able to finish a mini quilt I started last summer with one of the charm packs and a set of 4 placemats with the second pack.

Southwest Star Mini Quilt

The placemats have an odd/interesting shape — I found the pattern in the magazine Annie’s Quilting with Pre-Cuts.

Lastly I did finish my winter blues table runner! I used a heavier rayon thread for the snowflake embroidery to make them pop!

Happy Stitching!

  2. Hi Karla! Your first mini sure does have a southwest vibe. I just love that straight line quilting – it reminds me of an arrow. It looks just perfect! And so nice with the placemats, too. I am in awe of your snowflakes – I was just saying the same thing on Connie’s website where you are featured, my friend! ~smile~ Roseanne

  4. Great finishes Karla! I love the unconventional shape of the placemats – I’ll have to see if I can find that pattern.

    • The placemats are super simple to make — Make a nine patch using 5 inch squares. Cut two squares opposite ends on the diagonal! Add backing batting, stitch, leave an opening, turn right side out, topstitch and quilt — done. I had all four made in a hour.
