Fabric Ornaments

Over the past few weeks I have been trying to make a few fabric ornaments for Christmas. Every year I try and make some kind of ornament. Last year I made a fabric folding ornament got frustrated because I was having trouble finishing it off. This year I found a pattern that was easier than the one that I had. I also found another pattern that was also fairly easy to do and that one is free. I will post the link to the patterns at the bottom of the post.

These are not great pictures, but here they are.

The one in Christmas fabric is the one that I did last year.

Here is the link to the website where I got the free pattern.

Rachael's baby quilt - finished

Rachael's baby quilt is finished. I missed the deadline of last Friday, but it is ready to give to her. At least I finished it before the baby was born. I just love the backing fabric that my daughter picked out. It is so fun.

WIP-Rachael's Baby Quilt

My daughter's friend Rachael is going to be having a baby girl. My daughter wanted to give her a handmade baby quilt. She asked Rachael what colors she wanted and this is what she said. "I like purple, pink, zebra and cheetah prints". Here are our fabrics, we got lucky and found the pink in a cheetah print. 

My daughter is just learning to sew and has a very busy schedule between work and school. I decided to design an easy 3 fabric rail quilt. That way if she didn't have time to work on it, I could whip it out in a day. Here is the design I came up with.

I have cut the strips and sewed one together.  

I have also cut the strip into five 8½" blocks.

I will be sewing all the strips and my daughter will be assembling the quilt. She still needs to pick out a backing but she will do that when the top is done.

Thanks for stopping by.

Block 7 - Pinwheel

I managed to squeeze in another block. I need to schedule these blocks in on my calendar so I don't forget to do them while I am working on other projects. Here are the Pinwheel blocks.

These only took about 15 minutes per block from cut to finished. Super easy.

Scarf Decoupage Pumpkins

I took a little break from sewing to make some decoupage pumpkins.

I was looking through Pinterest for Fall decorating ideas when I came across these cute SILK SCARF PUMPKINS. I decided to give it a try and make some for myself.

I had some pumpkins here and bought 2 more at the Dollar Tree. I bought 2 cheap scarves. One from a thrift store which was silk and another from the Dollar Tree which was polyester. I also found 2 nice picks at Michael's to use on the tops.

The trick is to make sure you cut your scarf pieces small enough. The first one that I did the pieces were a little big. I had a hard time making it smooth. I also found that the polyester fabric was trickier to apply. The silk went on nicely. I used orange pumpkins because the were cheap but if you want the scarf colors to show up better I would suggest using the more expensive white pumpkins. 

I think that they came out very nice.

Product Review - Wing Clipper ruler

I recently purchased Deb Tucker's WING CLIPPER RULER from my local quilt shop. I had a lot of flying geese blocks to trim and I didn't want to mess them up. This ruler is awesome. 

The ruler has markings to trim 10 different sizes. 
It also comes with directions on how to make the no waste 
flying geese in 10 sizes.

Here are my flying geese being trimmed.

Easy peasy. If you can't find the ruler at your local quilt shop, you can order HERE.
