To-Do #1Quilt and Bind Tumbler Flag Quilt

I’ve had the Missouri Star Flag Tumbler Quilt on my “someday” list for awhile. You can find the video tutorial by MSQC here.

My flag tumbler measures 36 x 24 inches, I used red, cream, and blue scraps of Grunge seeing stars and seeing dots fabric lines. The original pattern included a border, I chose not to add the border so that it will fit on the glass portion of our coffee table. The heart flag embroidery design was purchased from Planet Applique.

To-Do #2 – Quilt and Bind Twisted Star Table Runner

I really love the look of half rectangle triangles! There are so many modern quilt layouts using hrt blocks. I used the Creative Grids Perfect Rectangle ruler to make the half rectangle blocks for the star, the table runner measures 12 x 36 inches. I used RWB fabrics from my stash.

The wonky log cabin placemats measure 12 x 18 inches.

To-Do #3 – Quilt and Bind Spinning Star Pillow

I love this pillow ♥ I paper pieced it using a free pattern from All People Quilt. You can find the instructions and pattern here. Pillow measures 20.5 x 20.5 inches, again I used scraps. The pattern did not call for binding — I really like how the red binding frames the pillow.
