Table runners, from the pattern 'Stack FourTablerunners' by quilt woman.com. ... The pattern is a stack and whack type, and you end up with two pieced tops. They didn't realize this when cutting for me as I only had fabric for one backing ... So I improvised. I really like the pieced back, maybe even better ...
Then we have the 'Adorable Bag' a pattern by Aunties Two. It is adorable but maybe not for beginners, haha. Although not difficult, it is painstaking and time consuming. Starting with a jelly roll, you create strips, then weave them into the bag body. Took me two days! But it IS adorable,
A couple of potholders in fresh new fabrics, from the immensely popular heart potholder pattern (I drafted that pattern for Jackmans, it's included in potholder kits) --
And a garment - how cute is this?! Jacket is Molly by Violette Fields, I just winged it on the skirt (tutorial write-up at Jackmans).
And finally, a sweet baby quilt. It is 'Racetrack' from the book 'Little Quilts for Kids' by Heather Mulder Peterson. I adore this fabric and think this quilt should be called 'A Drive Through the Park'. Makes me think of driving through Ramsey Lake State Park and the cherished sights and wildlife you find there.
Close up - and oh yes, they have teeter totters at the park, and wild daisies (a hand embroidered touch) that grow beside ...
And my favorite feature, I was able to strategically place one of cars so that the fabric provided both a driver and passenger for the car (you really have to click in to get full effect) -- how fun!
And lastly, the back is as fun as the front! Love the fabric and I made a label that I think fit right in with the spirit of the quilt --
In closing, I sadly note the passing of our dearly beloved family friend, Don. We will sorely miss someone who has loved me and my sisters (and my mother) so dearly. The world is at a great loss and heaven a great gain. Special prayers of need for Katie, Ray and Denny. God bless all. Love, J
