Hello Friends! I have a new pattern available called Bundle Up Holiday Coasters. Featuring four mix and match designs, these super cute little guys are the perfect last minute homemade gift. All of the designs are centered around my Bundle Up for Winter theme, a mitten, stocking, Knit Cap and Turtleneck with Sweater Vest.
This pattern started out with the Mini Mitten which was published by itself in Modern Patchwork Gifts back in 2016. It was so cute, I had to add a few more coaster designs to create a collection.
Want to add a little pizazz to your coasters? Try fussy cutting and piecing the sweater vest with adorable prints like these. You can go crazy creating these. For these coasters, I quilted by using straight stitch quilting on the diagonal with a walking foot about 1/4″ apart.
Need to whip up the coasters in a jiffy, go for the simple stocking and just a 3 way color scheme. Those polkadots are just too cheery. Again I am straight line quilting with a walking foot, this time straight up and down.
These coasters don’t take much fabric either, you could easily make them with your holiday fabric scraps.
HO HO HO! Santa Claus is coming to town! This adorable Santa Baby Door Hanger is a festive way to celebrate the season. I am so proud to have it featured in Quilts & More Magazine. It is made with wool felt applique and embellishments. A great gift idea for friends and family too.
My Santa Baby Door Hanger is featured in the Winter 2022 issue of Better Homes & Gardens Quilts & More Magazine available now.
I designed this little project with my trusty EQ8 Quilt Design Software. I used it to create the little applique shapes and the background piecing. I love that you can add or remove a seam allowance around the applique shapes depending on the applique technique you are using.
The little guy really starts to take shape as you add embellishements like buttons, pom pom and the fuzzy wool felt I found for the beard and mustache.
The extra fringe, pom pom trim and ribbon loop add to the holiday charm.
You can find the pattern and instructions in the Winter 2022 Issue of Quilts & More.
