There's something about the North Star pattern that especially lends itself to Christmas designs.

Art Threads: Christmas in July - North Star Quilted Table Runner

My mom and I have been having fun working on these large table runners (about 16 by 32 inches) that are pieced and then quilted with "stitch in the ditch" or a close outline to the seams. I've given the directions for one exactly like I made (assuming you find the same fabric!) , but you could use any type of fabric and arrange the blocks in different ways. Materials: *fat quarters of four different Christmas fabrics - I chose two that were mostly green and two that were mostly red. All four have gold printing in them. *1/2 yard white fabric - mine has different sizes of dots that I thought looked like snowflakes *1/2 yard backing fabric *3 yards bias tape *fusible felt or low loft batting *large safety pins I'll refer to the red poinsettia fabric as R1, the red star fabric as R2, the green pinecone fabric as G1, and the green holly fabric as G2. 1.

Block 1 - R1 flying geese, G1 border 2. Art Threads: Wednesday Sewing - North Star Potholders. I've been working with North Star (or Sawtooth Star) patchwork for a few weeks now and love this pattern!

Art Threads: Wednesday Sewing - North Star Potholders

It's easy to get a really nice looking block - as long as you pay attention to a few simple things like matching the seams and sewing just on top of the point. You'll see! The first project I made was a potholder - actually two!. I had some fabric left over from the 4th of July quilted table mat that was perfect for a coordinated set. I have another project that I'll have a tutorial for in a bit - it's turning out really well and I'll give you a tiny preview at the end of this post.

Materials: *Two coordinating fabrics Fabric A is the background fabric Fabric B is the star fabric *backing fabric *1 yard bias tape for each potholder *fusible felt *optional - Insul-Brite or other insulating material 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 10. 11. 12.

Oh, The Smells! — Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I know you would. You’d probably pretend you just dropped by to visit me and then you’d ask for a bowl of my yummy soup! Maybe you’d even push your luck and ask for a slice of bread, with some butter! And . . I’d be thrilled to share a bowl of Italian Sausage Soup. The aroma wafting from my kitchen, through my open windows, will no doubt cause my UPS man and Fed Ex man to ask “what are you cooking?” Gina shared this recipe on her blog last year and we have it often during the cooler months. We were supposed to be having Shipwreck Stew for dinner tonight and Taco Soup for lunch today but Vince told me last night that he won’t be home for dinner tonight so that gave me a chance to re-arrange my plans a bit.
