Two Small Quilts for Thanksgiving
It's Thanksgiving night. I hope you have all enjoyed the day with family, friends, and a delicious meal; the dishes are done, and you are putting your feet up. This year I completed a couple of small quilts that I consider to be "Thanksgiving" quilts to decorate our home with. The first is this table runner. The pattern is Twinkly Stars in the book Trendy Table 3 from Anka's Treasures. I couldn't resist this wonderful star design. It's made with charm squares from the fabric line October Morning by Kim Diehl.
Of course, I had my Creative Grids tools to help me: The Folded Corner Clipper and the Half Square 4-in-1 Triangle Ruler.
I custom quilted this project, and I really love how it looks on my table!
The next project is a wall hanging. The fabrics are various prints from JoAnn's, and the pattern is called Raspberry Stars from Cut Loose Press. The Creative Grids USA Cat's Cradle Tool is the key player in piecing this one.
I'm pleased with the final result of the custom quilting on this quilt as well. I actually pieced this in 2018 but just quilted it about a month ago. It is hanging in our living room, but only for a short time until the Christmas decorations come out.
Jack Doodle has been stealing my seat on the couch these days. He is a good foot warmer, though. I suppose I should be thankful :-)
Stop back again soon!

I LOVE to quilt, and every day I must sew for my sanity!
