2017-23 Quilt-As-You-Go Potholders

It seems that every year I make up a quick pair of Quilt As You Go Potholders specifically for a entry for this class at the Wellesley Fair.  They usually take me about an hour to make and then they are a good hostess gift to have on hand.   These pot holders were made from a little set of coordinated scraps I had in one of my many little baggies of leftover scraps.
So I was happy with the result – one more fair entry and one less baggie!

2017-2 Illusions Interleave

This interleave style wall hanging was my first venture into this quilting technique.  I used only three fabrics.  The magic came from the one variegated batik that gave great texture and dimension.  The tall navy triangle, the orange/gold triangle and the borders are all from one piece of fabric.  I learned a lot by doing this hanging!

The center is Quilt-As You Go, which is inherent in the technique.  I added the dense quilting on the outside borders to add extra texture and interest to the hanging.  One of my favourite projects of 2017!






2016-33 Quilt As You Go Potholders

red-qayg-potholdersSometimes you just need to do a quick and easy project.  The fall fair had a category for a set of Quilt As You Go Potholders.  I had a pile of red scraps, so these potholders came together very quickly.  They have a double layer of batting to make them thick and protective.  These will likely be a stocking stuffer for one of my children.



2012-19: Xmas Table Runner

Xmas Runner 3This is the third table runner pieced from a group of partially completed strip pieced blocks from my friend Jacqueline.

The runner was started with the Quilt As You Go, but finished on the longarm by adding a second backing.  The runner was quilted with Rheingold Metallic thread in a stipple pattern.

The finished table runner was donated to the Hand Made silent auction table at the Rosseau Fall Fair to raise money for the operation of the fair.

2012-18: Xmas Table Runner

Xmas Runner 2This is another runner that came partially pieced when my friend Jacqueline cleaned out her stash.  Finishing up this runner was something I leisurely worked on during my summer vacation at the cottage.

I am a machine quilter through and through, so it is worth the effort to mount a project like this on the longarm, even when it is already partially quilted with the Quilt As You Go method.  Anything to avoid hand sewing!  This runner was quilted with Rheingold metallic gold, giving it a sparkly note.

The finished runner was donated to the “Hand Made” silent auction at the Rosseau Fall Fair to help raise operating funds for the fair.

2012-17: Xmas Strip Pieced Table Runner

Xmas Runner 1When my friend Jacqueline cleaned out her stash, she gave me some partially pieced Quilt As You Go blocks.   Jacqueline vaguely remembered that they were intended to be table runners, so with that bit of information, I finished the blocks and assembled them into table runners.

Since I do not like the hand sewing that goes along with the Quilt As You Go assembly method, I mounted the runners along with another backing onto the longarm and quilted them with a gold metallic stipple.  The metallic thread gave a festive air to the table runners.  Binding of this runner was done by machine with the same fabric as used in the sashing.

The finished runner was donated to the “Hand Made” silent auction at the Rosseau Fall Fair.
