Weekend Finishes – Gift One Done

Happy Monday!

We had a quiet weekend, hubby played golf and I spent time in my sewing room.

Hubby’s daughter is an artist – a very talented painter.  One of her popular items is personalizing/painting glass including stemware. Below is a couple of wine glasses she gifted me a few years ago – my son played for the New York Giants and wine is my favorite beverage 🙂

I chose Jenny Doan’s Tumbler quilt pattern, the shape reminds me of of many of the glasses my step daughter decorates.

The tumbler quilt was easy to assemble. I used a Moda layer cake – Mixologie by Studio M. I love the modern prints and colors, especially the coral and yellow.

I used my walking foot for quilting, simply echoing the seam lines. I backed the quilt with a gray Minky – it is super soft!

The quilt measures 55 x 78 inches – perfect for snuggling!

Until next time Happy Sewing!

Weekend Finishes

Hello and happy Sunday!

I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season and enjoying the time leading up to the big day — December 25!

This past week was really busy for me finishing up customer orders promised with before Christmas delivery dates.

I finished a gift  for one of my neighbors this week. They helped my hubby and I survive hurricane Irma this  past summer. The tube quilting technique that Jenny Doan from Missouri Star Quilt company demonstrated intrigued me and I decided to give it a try. The steps are easy enough but working with a bias edge can be tricky so extra care is needed. If you are unfamiliar with tube quilting you can watch the you tube video here.

The table runner I finished using the tube quilting techniques measures 19 x 60 inches.  I used fabric from my Christmas stash.  The colors  used complement her Christmas decor perfectly. I love the fabrics and the design layout — I didn’t want to ruin it with my not perfect free motion quilting so I opted for safe “stitch in the ditch”. Seeing her face after opening the gift was priceless — definitely made my day 🙂
