Hunter's Star Table Runner

 Today, I finally get to share this finish.
I'm not so good with secret sewing.

This table runner is made with Fat Quarter Shop's newest pattern from their 
Classic and Vintage Series of patterns,

The Fat Quarter Shop asked if I would make one quilt block for the Hunter's Star Quilt Along, but once I started I couldn't stop.
I had so much fun and my pile continued to grow, but time didn't.

I stopped and made a 24" x 60" table runner from the pattern.

My fabrics are Manderley by Moda and the background is Kona in white
The binding is Kona in graphite.

Fat Quarter Shop's down loadable pattern is available for purchase. 
 Just click HERE

Fat Quarter Shop has a kit available and a YouTube video too.

I just love how this one is classic with a modern look.

This has been a fun journey and I love my new table runner.  

Thank you, Fat Quarter Shop for this opportunity to join the buzz about  your new pattern

Pieced and Appliqued Flannel Rag Quilt

 Flannel rag quilts are so soft and I love to make them for family and friends.
They are perfect for a beginner or an experienced quilter.

Today I'm over on Thermoweb's Blog to share this free pattern to make your own pieced and appliqued flannel rag quilt.

When Dear Stella introduced the Winter Cabin Flannel fabric, I knew right away it would be perfect for a cozy quilt in my cabin. It is the softest flannel fabric I have ever touched.
Can you say "butter"?

I used HeatnBond Soft Stretch Lite for the applique trees. 
 It stays soft and is perfect for flannel fabric.

But you can find out about that and all you need to make this Cozy Cabin Quilt
by clicking HERE.

Stay warm!

Be You - Bold and Brave - Project Quilting Season 9, Project 3

Bold and Brave is the third challenge of 
Project Quilting.

My entry is
Be You.

She announces a challenge and you have one week to create something quilty.
Prizes can be won and it's a great way to meet new blogging friends.

I had such a hard time coming up with time and an idea for this challenge.
Then the saying Be bold, be brave, be you came to mind
just wouldn't get out of my head.

So I incorporated my love of quilting and my long career of hair styling
with little aspects of me.

Here's my picture process and some details.

I fused HeatnBond lite to the back of florals and cut them out.
I peeled off the backing paper and layed out my design
then I fused it all down to the backing fabric at once.

A few details like a cowboy hat, birds, Kansas City Chiefs.

Love Tula Pink fabrics for collage quilting.

Can you say afro?
