Christmas Placemats

I am having lots of fun making these placemats and having them in my finished stash pile for gift giving when I need something. These are in Christmas fabrics :) Hmmm... might just make a pretty quilt too!

Twice as Nice Quilt

The May program for my quilt guild was the Twice as Nice quilt pattern by Eleanor Burns. One of our members is an accredited teacher and she got the patterns and rulers for us. I don't know why it's called Twice as Nice when it makes 3 quilts, but that is just me :)

Finished projects!

I have been working on finishing a bunch of my projects so I will have a pretty long post :)

First are some placemats: The red and black placemats are for my daughter, Jessica and the other 2 were samples used in a class I taught at guild.

Now I have 2 tablerunners to show you: The first one is made from leftover pieces from all the 2 1/2" strips I have been using to make quilts lately. I saw this at Barbara's 2013 sew-in. The second one is made from the leftover blocks from two other quilts I made using those same 2 1/2" strips.

Here is the quilt made from Barbara's sew-in 2013. A very simple pattern and all the kits came from her stash of fabrics... what a stashbuster!
