That’s correct! I have 2 finished projects! Both of them were started and completed in less than a week! OK … they’re both easy projects – AND it was fun to make them!
This first one is a 36″ Christmas Tree Skirt. I used a 9 degree ruler! The fabrics were an assortment of Christmas fabrics from Essem Textiles. Hobbs 80/20 batting was used. I quilted a simple loop-d’-loop pattern. I neglected to stay-stitch the circle before adding the binding, so it stretched a bit and sort-of comes up a bit in the middle … but since it’s a tree skirt, it’ll be fine!
This one is a Quilt-as-you-go Table Runner. Although it doesn’t show in the picture, the fabric has lots of glimmering gold in it! Again, the fabrics came from Essem Textiles. I will be teaching this as a class in December.
Hope those who celebrate Thanksgiving had a great Turkey Day!
Playing with Rulers
A bunch of us got together at Essem and played with rulers. We all brought the rulers that we had and experimented with them! We had all levels of expertise: from “I’ve never done this before” to a gal that used to teach ruler quilting.
Talk about fun!
I was so busy, that I forgot to take a picture of what I did.
This is the back of a baby panel and I added some free motion loop-d-loops in to fill the gaps.
Yesterday, I was Zoom quilting with some of the guild members and mentioned that we had done this. Several people were interested … if you live in the lower mainland and are interested in driving to Cloverdale, let Essem Textiles. know and we’ll arrange a “Playing with Rulers” time!
