Wednesday Favorites

I was actually hoping to post this last week, but because of camera issues...and a pretty busy schedule...here it is today! First up is a little table topper I made with the block design from my Charm Pack Placemats tutorial.



We have a little table in our family room that seats 4, and I like to have a centerpiece to use to set a napkin basket on. So I pulled some of my scraps together and used nine blocks for the topper (you might notice I used a little nine patch in the center along with eight of the rail fence blocks).

Mini Christmas Tree Quilts

Happy Tuesday! Two days...and two parades! Today is the day for the Minis and More Mini Juniper parade...and after today's parade we will be drawing our quarterly prize winners!

Sadly, my quilt is still in the same condition you saw it last. I just can't decide on a border. I'm actually thinking about doing scrappy greens (inspired by Michele's version here). Anyway...here is our little parade and our announcement for the next pattern!

Summer Sampler Mini Quilt Parade

Happy Monday...I know it's late in the day...but I promised a parade today, and so here it is! There were some lovely quilt photos that arrived in my inbox, and I'm happy to share them with you! I still need to put the binding on mine...just can't decide between fabrics! I think I might be leaning toward the green polka dots though!


 First up is a quilt set on-point! Yes, on-point...I love this one so much!

A New Pattern!

Happy Saturday! I have something fun to share today...one of my favorite quilts from my book C&T Publishing Fresh Family Traditions: 18 Heirloom Quilts for a New Generation has been published as an individual pattern.  The Stash Books section at C&T has been publishing a few individual patterns, and they are beautifully done! "Modern Indian Summer" is available September 1st.


They will be available from C&T; however, I have some available with a special

Charm Pack Patchwork Placemats Tutorial

Happy Wednesday! I'm so excited to share this tutorial with you today...I finally made some new placemats based on some that my Grandmother used to make for us all of the time. These placemats are perfect in any fabrics and especially fun in holiday fabrics...and best of all...you can make 6 placemats with just one charm pack!



This is also a perfect project for scraps...I actually started with a Lucy's Crab Shack charm pack and then added in scraps from Hometown, Reunion, and Feed Company to mix it up. I'm in love with these...they are just the thing to brighten my table for a month or so before I'm ready to start decorating for fall!
