Dappled

Linda H and I have both been working on "Dappled" blocks. The pattern, designed by Tricia Camp came from a 2012 McCalls Quilting magazine. I have 11 of these blocks made so far, Linda has more than that done. I already have a whole bunch of 3 1/2" squares and 2 1/2" strips cut from other projects, so I've been using them. I think I might make a queen size quilt from the blocks, Linda is going to make a twin bed size.

Potholders

I made these potholders as part of a friend's Christmas gift. M&Ms fabric is on the back of them. The rest of the gift includes homemade gingersnaps, a Zen Cats calendar and a small Buddha statue. :) I'm going to drop it off on her doorstep tomorrow morning on my way to work.

Throwback Thursday; Christmas Table Runner

I made this Christmas table runner for my sister, Linda H in 2002. I hardly remember making it, although the fabrics look familiar. Linda's husband, Richard sent these pictures to me the other day. I don't know if I used a pattern or if I just set blocks together in a row. There are many projects that I never photographed over the years, I try to always take photos now to keep a record of what I've done.

Laptop Carrying Case

I just finished making this laptop carrying case for a Christmas gift. It's made from remnants of upholstery fabric and imitation leather, with webbing for handles. There wasn't anything around here to use for a soft lining, so I bought a towel and cut it to fit. I hope the recipient will like it. :)

Christmas Table Runner by Linda H.

Linda H made this Christmas table runner to sell at a craft sale recently. It didn't sell, so she gave it to a friend. Linda and I are always trying to use up our Christmas fabric stashes but they never seem to get depleted. :) Emma the cat had to give the table runner a final inspection.
