This past Saturday was International Quilting Day. I finished up a few projects.
I pieced the pillow top last week, and machine quilted and finished it this weekend. I started piecing the table topper last weekend and finished it this weekend. The little coaster/mug mat I made this weekend as part of a sew along.
For the pillow I added a piece of needlepoint that my Mother made a while ago - it has been waiting around for the right project and I thought it went very well with the French General fabric.
The diamond shaped table topper was made with the Mini Hex n More ruler. It is a great little ruler (about 3" long), and a nice way to use up little bits of fabric (it is pretty easy to figure out how to combine pieces for the patterns too). The table topper is about 18"x31" (measured from the points).
The mug mat pattern was from Kathleen Tracy (A Sentimental Quilter). It is about 4"x7".
Can you tell I am trying to use up every little piece of a French General fat quarter pack! Two quilt tops (waiting for quilting - the Double Wedding Ring quilt top has some French General yardage too), a pillow cover, a table topper, a mug mat and a little chicken pincushion.
This is what is left of the FQ's - enough for a little selvage bag I think/hope.
Yesterday it looked like this-
and we woke up to this this morning-
The beauty of snow in March is that it will melt soon.
The animals had to dig for seeds. The snow didn't stop the partridges from fighting (you can see them in the background).
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!♥
