Paper-Pieced Table Runner

I am going through a slow process of organizing myself and my work area. It was looking like a hurricane hit it. Little by little I am (with my husband’s help) picking up everything. One of the things that I have to do is complete the multitude of unfinished projects (UFOs) that I have. Some are from when I was going to teach and I was in the process of making samples for that class. Others were me trying to learn art quilting and just gave up on it and moved onto another project. Kind of a “Shinny object” disease (new things always catching my eye and interest).

The first one that I am working on completing is this table runner. I designed it and it was suppose to be a class until Covid hit and my plans were altered. So once it is finished I’ll add it to my Etsy list or in one of the shops (haven’t decided that yet).

After I designed the table runner, I print a piece of paper for each square I need. In this case 12.
Then I sew on the pieces of fabric on. Actually, each piece of fabric is sewn on the paper side for accuracy. I’ll have to do a video another date showing you that process.
This is one of the squares with the paper still on the back and all of the fabric sewn.
Now the fun part comes!!! All of the squares are sewn together and I get to pull off every little piece of paper!!!!
It’s all ready to layer, quilt, and add a binding! WooHoo!

Hope you enjoyed this blog! Have a wonderful day!

Keeping Busy!

Since I posted last with my wonderful plan of projects to do, I saw on the news that masks are being made with cotton and flannel. I was all over it and started making them like there was no tomorrow! To date, I have made over 300 masks and still going.

I was making them at a rate of 50 per day which totally wiped me out, energy wise. I realized I needed (actually craved) my art quilting and time to be creative.

So, today I did a piece that is a quick “sketch” in thread, painted, and put onto a frame. It helps me get focused on the masks more.

Size: 5” x 7”
$20

I will be doing some small pieces like this to keep my creativity (aka: my happy place) flowing while still helping during this crisis.

They will all be for sale. If you would like to purchase one of these pieces, please message me. Also, if you have an idea of a subject to sketch, please pass it along to me.

Thank you for reading my blog. Stay safe and healthy!❤️
