More Stuff I've Been Too Lazy to Blog

Untitled
Made this table runner for the holidays. 

Untitled
 Hubby says it isn't festive enough, but I took Susan's suggestion and stuck a tree on it.  BAM! Festive! ha ha!

Untitled
  I thought I would sell it or gift it, but......

Untitled
I did a little binding experiment and it didn't come out exactly how I wanted.  This bit looks good, but there were parts that didn't catch and I had to go back over them.  I feel like this re-stitching makes the back look messy and I can't, in good conscience, sell or gift something that looks sloppy.  Oh, I also managed to use straight-grain biding on the curved corners! Lazy quilters shout "hell yeah!"

Now, what should I do with it? Pillow? Mini?
Made this quilt-as-you-go block.

Scrappy QAYG pillow complete!
Turned it into a pillow.  I'll probably sell it since it doesn't really go with anything at my house.

Second fabric bucket complete!!!
Made fabric buckets with Ashley's tute.  I think this is my new method of scrap storage--SO much easier for lazy old me!

I'm starting to get addicted to these fabric buckets!
oh yeah, made this one too!

Thankful to finish another WIP!
Finished quilting this top that has been done for a while.  I planned on selling it, but my oldest said he wanted it.  Since my kids rarely show interest in what I make, I caved and let him have it.

Awesome present from Market from @stefaniewilliams Thanks so much girl!!!!
My sweet friend, Stefanie, brought me this sweet mini charm pack from Market! Isn't it cute!  Any suggestions for what I should make with it?

such lovely projects, I especially love the runner and the little quilt, so very cute. How fun that your little one wanted it for himself.

Lovely runner. I really like the rounded corners.

Laura said...

Love your runner. I think a pillow in the tiny charm pack would be so cute.

traceyjay said...

you crack me up about the rounded corners... way cute runner though! Glad Roarke liked the quilt... :) I like the fabric baskets too. Though I think my plastic shoebins for scrap storage are lazier than those cute fabric buckets. :)

Love the runner, especially with the tree, haha! I'm going to need to try those buckets, my scraps need some better digs.

JuliePickles said...

Hell, yeah! Totally guilty of using straight of grain binding on rounded corners. Did you use interfacing on the buckets you made with the linen fabrics? Just curious as to how well they stand if you didn't. I want to make some but I don't want floppy buckets.

Hell yeah! (lazy quilter in the house)

I think the tree makes the runner so OTT Christmassy, I'd rein it in if I were you!

That little tree rocks! And your Gretchen Wilson is coming out. "Hell Yeah!" is right when you find a shortcut.
