Boxed In 9 Patch


This is a quilt made by Richard using a pattern that Tanya created which she calls Boxed In.


This is of course a simple 9 patch block just surrounded by white with white in the center.  This is meant to be a really simple pattern for a beginner quilter.


I love the colors Tanya picked they are really bright and pretty.


The back of the quilt is a star minky.  Tanya knows how much I hate to quilt minky and I think that inspires her to keep buying more and more minkey to make my quilting more dificult.  Good thing it looks and feels so nice on them.

Lots and Lots of Christmas Stockings




Last year after Christmas and the previous year we bought a bunch of fabrics to make Christmas Stockings for family and also to sell.  We thought it would be great to have some table runners, stockings and pot holders for craft fairs.  We have finally have started to get some smaller stuff up on Etsy, with plans to be able to do a craft fair next year. We also are making stockings for family.


As you can see this one belongs to Julia.
When  you don't have a mantle because you don't have a fireplace you  make other stuff work.


This is the back she wanted, pink cat fabric.



The one is for Tanya (most likely).
  That is unless I change my mind and like one of the others better.  I really like the silver and white pictured below as well.  


 I have started the ones for the other kids. Jared wanted green, Rebecca turquoise and James purple.  Richard wants a completely different one.  Any guesses?  He wants orange and gray 2 1/2 inch squares. Does this surprise anyone who has followed us for any length of time?

Purple Quilt


This purple quilt is a vanishing 9 patch.



Purple is a color that tends to sell well on our etsy store, but it is hard finding purple fabric in quilt stores.


I wanted a purple stripe for binding, but ended up with a purple gingham.  

We linked up with  Monday Making and Patchwork Times

The back is off white.  The binding is scrappy.

Christmas Time Sewing


We decided to make some Christmas Stockings.  Here are some of the fronts.  Some will be for family and some will be added to our etsy store.


Here are two table runners that we have finished and added to our store or if they don't sell this year, will be stockpiled for a show for next year.  If you would like to buy or like one of these table runners please vist our etsy store.  Here is a link to the 2nd one.


I have been selling patterns on Craftsy for a couple years now and recently Craftsy has changed and I am not sure if its for the better.  One big change that I think is for the better is that you can now rate craftsy patterns easier.  These two table runners are created using a pattern that I sell on Craftsy.  I use to be able to add projects and link them to this pattern, but because of the changes I no longer can link new projects up.  Sadly that means I can not link up these two finishes.   I would like to try and get better ratings on Craftsy and as such I am looking for people that can add a review to my Diagonal Table Runner.  I will give anyone a copy of my pattern just for commenting here on this post or on my facebook page (make sure I have a email to send the digital pattern too).  If you like it please give a me a good review on Craftsy.
