sewing and quilt-long this month, the Garden Steps: Stitch & Quilt Along. There will be two quilt options this time, a full quilt which will measure approximately 51" x 68" and a baby quilt which will measure approximately 34" x 51". So click on the link in my sidebar and make a note on your calendar so you don't miss out!
My two quilting groups had another Super Bowl Sunday sew-athon and a regular sew-athon this month. On SB Sunday, my friends and I made traveling iron caddys to carry our hot irons home. The pattern came from Husqvarna but of course, we had to change it a little, lol. Aren't these neat?

Of course Patsy Cline has to be right in the middle of everything!
Our fire hall sewing on Sundays has resulted in lots of really neat Christmas tree table runners using the Half Hexie Ruler that we bought at Missouri Quilt Co. I saw the tutorial they posted on You Tube and had to have it. So easy to make and you can use your scraps and there are so many ways to vary it..
This is Linda's completed one. Aren't they neat?
Mary decided the trees needed a trunk, so she added it to her's and then everyone else decided they wanted one too. So a slight change to the pattern, but still very easy.
Jill brought the quilts she had been working on for her two daughters-in-law for Christmas, so we could she how they turned out. Aren't they gorgeous? She is so talented. This is a picture quilt with the 3 boys pictures inside the the stars.
Here are some more pictures of our quilt club members projects over the last couple of weeks. We have so much fun when we get together and everyone does such different things. We inspire each other and push each other to be better quilters and friends.
