to my sister who opened her house to me
so I have a place to live.
So a thank you gift...a quilt...what else?!
My quilt was inspired by Kari Ramsey and her Moda Bake Shop tutorial.
I followed it through step #12. I made my borders differently.
Here's how I made it...
perfect for her house
1 layer cake
1 yard Grunge in Brown Sugar
...half yard each for inner border and binding.
2 yards Aromatherapy in Vanilla
from one of my favorite shops, Fresh-Squeezed Fabrics
Pair up squares and stitch 1/4 inch around all four sides.
I did one light and one dark.
cut diagonally twice
and ...voila! four half-square triangles
trim to 6 1/2 inches
that's a lot of trimming!
Lay out in a nice pattern and sew together.
I sewed four together with the dark to the center.
This made a 12 1/2" square.
And sewed them in rows and then sewed the rows together.
Add borders, Brown Grunge was cut into 2 1/2 inch strips
for inner border,
measure strip length after you have sewn the squares together.
Floral was cut into 6 1/2 inch strips for outer border,
same here, measure after first border is sewn on.
Make your quilt sandwich then quilt.
I quilted 1/4 inch away on all seams
Add your binding and you're done!
My finished quilt measured 60X72.
Then I made this...actually two of them.
This is a table my dad made, we both have one, so they're on each side of the couch.
I added a one inch inner border and a two inch outer border,
there's enough left over from making quilt.
The table is from Norman Rockwell's Santa at his Desk,
it was on the Saturday Evening post Magazine,
my dad drafted the plans for the table from the picture.
My dad also made the lamp...he's a crafty guy.
Thanks for visiting!
