quilt monday

 It feels a lot longer than 2 months ago it was Christmas. I hadn't planned on making any quilted gifts this year but in mid December, a friend of mine was scheduled for surgery and sadly, it meant she would have to be in hospital over Christmas. I absolutely had to make her a quilt.

I had some leftover layer cake squares from the shop and decided to do one of my favourite fast quilts, Layers of Charm.

I made the quilt longer so it would fit on a hospital bed better. Which worked out with my friend being 6ft tall.

I used one of the prints for the backing and added in some of the extra blocks for fun.

I used one of my favourite Christmas pantos, Holly Ribbon.

It works so well with these prints and doesn't scream Christmas.

I also used the same fabric as the backing for the binding.


I made another Christmas quilt with this line I'll show you next week.

Happy Monday

quilt monday

 Hello, hello. 

It's be a while!

 Also, how is it the middle of February already?

Let's get to the quilts. I wanted to make a new table runner for Christmas. I got it all cut out and it sat on my table until the middle of January lol. 

And when I went to put it together, it's important to read the directions thoroughly. 

The plan was for this sawtooth star runner. 

See those smaller stars. I was suppose to make 4 6inch stars. Instead I made 6 4inch ones. 
And somehow I ended up with an extra big star.

It's hard to tell in the pictures, but the background is a soft grey Kona. It's almost a white and one of my favourites. 

With the leftover blocks, I made this.
And yes, I should have ironed it before I took pictures and posted it on the internet.

I absolutely love the Christmas print. 
LOVE it.

And now I have a brand new runner ready to enjoy for THIS Christmas.

Happy Monday!
