Thermore batting and some custom quilting on this little 'mini' quilt which is just one block from Nancy's design.
Note: if you want to make the whole quilt, the last two cutting instructions aren't both 'white'; one set should be green. The result was this simple mug rug using all Island Batik fabrics that will be a
perfect gift for a friend.
While in temporary housing before moving to our current home, the guild I would be leaving had a block lotto of the Friendship Star. I made a couple of sets and won the drawing so ended up with even more. I made a few more to make up this quilt, worked in EQ to come up with a design and found various pine fabrics to use in the sashings, cornerstones and setting triangles in my stash and finally purchased fabric for the border. #electricquilt
hanaging off the porch at our new place before quilting!
The leftover border gave me this little runner using the 'one block wonder' technique with filler triangles to set them apart:
While looking for a picture of this last one, I found several other Christmas themed pieces I've made so thought I'd share them as part of this 'finale'.
A mystery from the Walla Walla Valley Quilt Guild and an early 'quilted on my domestic' piece.

A few other Christmas themed recent finishes:
Holly Berries in the Snow - out my back deck, a block lotto win from years ago required a few more to be made. I got inspired last Dec. when I needed some of the fabric curated for these 'extra' blocks, so cut out the blocks and was able to use the remaining fabrics for the next project.
I also taught a class late last year to make this table topper or tree skirt (add a slit).
I'm calling it Stars of the Season. This uses all Island Batik fabrics and was quilted with the Dancing Snowflakes pantograph design. I am a hand guided Gammill Opt+ quilter.
Lots of ideas for Christmas themed items that can be used around the house. I hope you're inspired!
