2015-14 Chicken Coasters

chicken-coastersThis cute set of coasters was made to enter into a category at the fall fair.  I fussy cut the chickens from a few leftover bits of fabric in my scrap bin.  I quilted them with a chicken wire design and then bound them with a coordinating red print.  They were simple and fun to make.  They will be handy as a quick gift for someone someday.  I have a few friends who are crazy about chickens!

 

2015-13 Easter Table Runner

easter-table-runnerThis Easter themed table runner started because of a category at the fall fair that called for an Easter item.  The center of the runner is a pale pink and white check that provides a good canvas for he Easter egg digital quilting design by Kim Diamond.  The bunny print outer border and narrow purple stop border work well with the theme.  The quilting is done in purple thread, which allows the design to take a more visible role in setting the theme.

2015-12 Christmas Star Wall Hanging

xmas-star-1This little wall hanging started with one leftover block from my Christmas Scenes quilt (2014-15).  I don’t like leftovers!  They take up space, clutter my work area and interfere with my creativity.  Through experience, I have found it is much better for me to make another quick project with the leftovers or simply give them away.  For this little block, I decided on a quickie project.  To complete it, I added a red inner border and a fussy cut Christmas themed outer border that picked up all the colours.  The custom quilting  finished it off nicely and the green print binding echoed the star points.  With the added hanging sleeve, it makes a nice little wall hanging that will either be a hostess gift or a donation to my guild’s boutique sale.
