Christmas Place Mats

Christmas is right around the corner - in fact exactly 1 month from today. I know there is always those last minute things that need to be done so I wanted to share with you, one of my last minute creations. With dinner parties and Christmas gatherings happening all through December I felt I should dress up my table a little for the occasion.

I don't often make quilt designs by others, but from time to time I do. Today I'm doing just that. I'm making Trinity Celtic Knot designed by Deborah Cohen. Deborah's version is a scrappy quilt using many fabrics in three color groups.

This week I made a new star runner quilt, a little different than the pattern. Instead I have mixed up the stars and made a scrappy kind of look.

Free Fabric

Today I was looking through my stash, thinking about my next quilt project when I came across a bunch of 2 1/2" cut squares. They were mostly blue but with a few other colors. I sifted through them and thought to myself, "these are not much use to me really but I reckon they would be great in a certain pattern".

Original Block - Twisted Ribbons

I really enjoy when quilters send me photos of their quilts made from one of my designs. I receive these quite often and like to share them with all my readers. Jen recently made my Twisted Ribbons quilt in purples and green. It turned out beautiful don't you think? I really like the border fabric Jen!

Another Star block

Here I am again with another block for "Entwined Star", just because I could not resist making another. The first was so much fun that this time I wanted to try a more autumn tone block.

Star Quilt - how can I help

Posted by Ruth on 25 March 2012 | 22 Comments

Tags: ,

I've been eyeing up this pattern for quite some time, not that I'm a patchwork quilter, but still wishing I had some spare time to make up a block or two, just too see how it looked. Today, I finally decided I should just get right to it and as I did, I wrote some notes that might also help you along the way.

I was horrified when I read the news and watched a demonstration on how easy it was to steal someone's credit and debit card information yesterday.... and what's more, you don't even know it is happening!
