Midweek Makers 308

Welcome to Midweek Makers - let's do some sharing!


I'm away from the studio this week, working hard on the relative's house, which means I have no new quilts to show. I hope to be back at it soon, as I'm eager to finish my cat quilt, then move on to assembling the RSC2021 quilt. I think I can pull off those two goals before the end of the year!

As we're getting closer to Christmas, there were two Christmas-y quilts from Midweek Makers 306 that I'd like to showcase. Both of these were still in progress at that time, and now they're finished. Take a look at Donnaleeq's improv Red Birds before quilting,


and her Red Birds after quilting, with a pretty red binding to tie it all together.



The other Christmas quilt, with this before shot from Bell Creek Quilts of an adorable Santa panel,


then with an additional border and of course, the fabulous quilting Bell Creek Quilts enhanced it with.



These two are sending me into the Christmas mood! How about you? Any Christmas quilts to share today?

Christmas Cheer!

Now that Thanksgiving is over, the lead up to Christmas is in full swing. For me, I don't get excited about a holiday until it's 3-6 weeks away and maybe you're like that too.


With that in mind, and just for Santa, I'm sharing some of my Christmas runners and wall hangings that I've made within those weeks before the big holiday. I'm sure Santa will be happy to see them again - he certainly can't miss them as they adorn every available space in the house!

At the top of my nice list is Gnome for the Holidays, a super cute applique runner with a Santa gnome, his gingerbread-esque home, a few wonky snow coated trees, and snowflakes to set the scene.



Here's a closer look - he's just so cute!



Next on my nice list is the Peppermint Candy runner. I love this one for it's simplicity - red and white stripes with pinwheels in between. 


Those snowmen sure look like they're enjoying the scene!


Of course Christmas wouldn't be complete without trees and several tree patterns have made my nice list. I especially love this one, aptly named Christmas Trees.


Filled with small Christmas print appliques, then outlined with snow, three of them stacked make a great wall hanging, or I could have placed them side-by-side for a festive table runner. Maybe next year!

Another favorite tree runner, Holiday Forest, is a more modern design, with several trees reaching for the sky on a snow-filled background.


I liked these so much, I even made a set of placemats

Now as you know, Santa couldn't do his job without the help of his nine reindeer, especially Rudolph - they are quite the team! I'm sure that when Santa sees my Reindeer Wreath wall hanging, he'll remember how special they all are and give them more carrots!

Hmm, with all the quilts to see in my house, I hope I don't delay Santa too much from his duties!

Merry Christmas!

Midweek Makers 307

Welcome to Midweek Makers and Happy Thanksgiving!


I'm sure everyone is busy prepping for the holiday, as we welcome guests back to the table. Sure feels good, doesn't it? But if you're still on the fence about gathering, I totally understand. Whichever way you go, enjoy the festivities!

In giveaway news, let's congratulate Gail on winning the Cool Cotton and Whimsical Wool quilt book! From the questions asked, cotton applique outnumbered wool 2-1 for applique. Maybe this book will inspire more wool projects!

As for sharing, there's not much from me today. The cat quilt is still in progress, having had a few interruptions, and now a delay as we make our way out again to work on the relative's house. Guess there's no better way to spend a holiday!

And from the party last week, I was very impressed with all the scrappy goodness that showed. Take a look as these:

from Grace and Peace, this sew-along quilt called Phoenix,


Scrapbox Quilts working on her X and O project,


while Quiltpiecer shows us her blocks.



And the one that really caught my eye was a camping journal quilt from Melva Loves Scraps - wow! One could spend hours looking at this!


Nice work quilters! Who's got a share today? Totally understandable if the holiday has taken away your quilting time!
