If you're here for my first post in the #APQquiltalong series you can find that post here. I'll have another post for that series coming up soon, too!
My other sewing/quilting progress these days has been stitching up holiday gifts. Although I started a lot later than I planned, I'm starting to get a good little assortment finished up.
I finished up my 2 1/2" square table runner with an aqua binding with just the perfect amount of red. The full tutorial for this runner is coming soon (hopefully this weekend)!
I also made a ruffle dish towel using this kit and pattern by Sweetwater. (I couldn't find the pattern separately on their site, but I think it's worth it to buy a kit and get the pattern...then you can use the pattern for as many dish towels as you'd like). I think I'm going to look for some plain white waffle towels and embellish them with Christmas ruffles as well. They go together quickly and easily, and who doesn't love a decorative dish towel or two at the holidays?
I'll definitely be making more potholders for Christmas this year, too. I love using the Moda Candy squares and being able to put these together quickly. I published a pdf file on Craftsy with my directions and some tips for making these.
Okay...it's back to sewing for me. I'll be back soon--thanks so much for stopping by!
