Table Topper Summer Class

My second summer class was the Roulette table topper by Lehmann Quilting.


It was a great class at Quilt Beginnings with a wonderful small group of ladies.

The instructor's sample used Halloween fabrics.  This pattern makes a great seasonal project.  I wanted a table topper for the 4th of July.  Here is my finished top:
Now I just need to quilt it.

Summer Classes - Folded Star Hot Pad

Summer is the perfect time to take classes from my local quilt shop.  Quilt Beginnings offers a summer class pass for unlimited summer classes.  My wonderful husband purchased the class pass for me as a birthday present.  Because I work full-time, I limited my classes to those offered in the evening or on the weekend.

My first class was Folded Star Hot Pad by Plum Easy Patterns.

Quilt Beginnings has huge classrooms, and wonderful instructors.



My amazing daughter helped me choose summer fabrics for my hot pad.  The hot pads are very easy to make.

Since I am a Buckeye, I wanted to share an Ohio State hot pad that was made in class:

The hot pads make perfect gifts, and are perfect for using my stash.  I will definitely be making more.

Design Wall Monday

I can't believe June is almost over!  Today is Monday, and it's time to plan my week.  On my design wall, I have two small table mats.  I had purchased a kit to make Lady Bug, from the Heart & Home Co:
I found that the kit had extra fabric, so I made two matching table mats.  The kit even included little buttons to embellish them.  

Now I have to finish quilting them.  Hope everyone has a great week!

Design Wall Monday

This week, I am working on a quick table mat from Patrick Lose. Butterfly Centerpiece is a pattern from Fons and Porter March/April 2014.

I love the projects from Patrick Lose.  They are fun and easy and perfect for using up my stash!  There is even a free video in which Patrick shares how to make this project!

Here is my project:
Now I just need to finish it.
