Things have been moving along quite nicely at Stitched in Color (MAKE. handmade. do. Good). Here are a few glimpses of my projects this fall.
Spiderweb Christmas Tree Skirt
I finished up my design for a Christmas Tree Skirt made from the spiderweb quilt block. You can make one too, see Tutorial Part A and Part B. My skirt came out super-cheerful and full of color, which will suit our tree decorations quite nicely. I can’t wait to get to see it around our tree!
I surprised Aria on her birthday with a new pillowcase made from leftover scraps from her Fairytale Patchwork quilt. It was a cinch to put together! If you’d like to make your own, I also posted a pictoral tutorial here.
Easy Patchwork Tablecloth
In anticipation of fall festivities, I pieced together some 1/2 yards of various prints into a fun new tablecloth. I’m not much of a tablecloth person, but when you have to use fold-up tables to accommodate large groups, hiding the plastic is a must. I’ll look forward to pulling this one out!
Stitches for Baby
Here’s some embroidery for the next charity quilt I’m planning and completing for do. Good Stitches, an online quilting bee. I sent an embroidered motif to each member of my circle. Each woman will make a block incorporating the embroidery and then send it back to me. I can’t wait to see what they come up with! This baby quilt if for a needy young mother in my community.
So that’s a sampling of a few of the projects I’ve been stitching. If you enjoy the creative arts, please come by for a visit! I write lots of posts that are helpful for sewing newbies. Been thinking about sewing? It’s a lot of fun!
