Four Seasons in One Day – Quilt top

So, I have finally finished my quilt top for my “four seasons in one day”. This is my first quilt top ever – it fits a twin.  I was by myself the day I finished and had about 30 minutes of light left….so these are the best photos I have for now – I used my son’s playground as my photo assistant 🙂

Some details:

  • The tree design is my own.
  • All buttons and sequins are hand sewn on.
  • Joel Dewberry Notting Hill Jelly roll was used for the 1/2 Chevron border and the center borders. (thanks to all those who provided the encouragement to finish the Chevron border – it turned out great).
  • The corners of the border is just Kona Cotton yellow and red (the corners are not perfect but I still love how it turned out).

Christmas blocks – Place mats or table runner

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Needing a break from making the coffee cup sleeves, I decided to break out the Dear Mr. Claus jelly roll I had purchased.

For my current work in progress, I am thinking of making place mats or a table runner with them. I started making a rectangle block based on the “Sunspot” Design from book “The Practical Guide to Patchwork”, by Elizabeth Hartman. This is how it looks so far:

Now the decision is just how to use the blocks, if I use them for the place mats I will cut them in 1/2, the table runner I will use the block as is. Decisions, Decisions.

The craft fair stock is also coming along. This is what it looks like so far (coffee sleeves and chair bags).
