Sewing for holidays


There are still 2 1/2 weeks until Valentine’s Day.

That’s plenty of time to make a special little quilt!

I have several patterns that would do the trick!

Just a single Tiny Dresden plate…

such as Love You To The Moon

or Blessings of Friends

or a few more Tiny Dresden plates,

Love & Dresden Kisses

or With All My Heart.

Gotta love hearts & Tiny Dresdens!

Perhaps a quick & easy quilt-as-you-sew?

A bit of fusible applique on top of the quickly pieced/quilted runner & placemat.

Sharing Some Sweetness is fusible applique with a bit of piecing.

Mocha Hearts has fusible applique and a bit of piecing as well.

But my favorite is Dresden Love.

1 Tiny Dresden plate & a bit of fun.

If you can’t find these at your local quilt shop,

they’re available on my website.

It’s the perfect reason to sew

 & the perfect season to sew too!

Just Keep Sewing…

I’ve no memory of a wetter or cooler 4th of July weekend, you?

It may be too wet for a bar bq, but it’s not too wet to sew.

If you’re wanting some patriotic inspiration I worked up a table runner using my block from 100 Blocks’ vol. 11 magazine, available on my website.

The instructions to make the block are in the magazine.

FYI, the corners are made with my Tiny Dresden template

(also available on my website).

For a 50” table runner make 4 blocks,

then set them together with a narrow 1/4” sashing (cut 1/2”).

Or for a 37” table runner,

make just 3 blocks with the same narrow sashing.

Quilt, then add binding.

You’ll have a cute table runner to use at every patriotic holiday for years to come!

Just keep sewing…
