Odds and Ends

I started a new holiday table runner and placemat set today.

I went into Joann's on Sunday with the intention of buying muslin and thread.  I ended up buying this fabric too, just because I thought it was really unique!

Grey, mustard yellow, tan and white.  As a holiday fabric.  Who would have thought?  But I just love it.

 There are touches of gold in it as well, so gold thread seemed a natural choice for the quilting.  I also used one of my favorite quilting styles, what I call a "straight line stipple".  It's a meandering stitch, but with straight lines instead of curves.  On small items like this, I do it with the walking foot.

It can also be done as a free motion stitch on large things, which also works well (and you don't have to keep turning your project).

 I bought one yard of fabric, which was enough for a table runner and 4 placemats.

Sorry, the color is really off in this picture.  But you get the idea.

It was great to have a little sewing time today!


I had my first sale to South America yesterday!
