Tutorial on making place mats
It was exciting to finish up my Christmas place mats, napkins, and table runner this past weekend. I am trying to use up all my left over Christmas fabric so I have started some hot pads with mini dresdens on (#tinydresdenparty2019) They were fun to do but more challenging then the typical dresden being about half the size. I have included a link to Quilty Obsessions website where the directions and template for the mini dresden can be found. Enjoy.

Of course I will be working on random things that aren’t targeted to be finished until later quarters but I figured what could it hurt? I got out my Quilter’s Planner. Made my list.

It’s been a while with life taking over my free time.

I decided to use Alison Glass fabrics in a color wash layout. I have spent hours on the coloring of my layout as I progress. Continue reading “Quilt Diary: Fall Update”
