Log Cabin Table Runner Pre-Cut Kit by Maywood Studio

Have you ever had a day when you knew you wanted to work on something, but didn't want to get started on something big either because you felt you didn't have the time or maybe the energy to pick it out? Well, there I was in the sewing room. I had once again cleaned off the horizontal surfaces and had some time to work on something, Oh, sure, I have plenty of projects already started, but just didn't feel like trying to remember where I had left off. Then I looked at a pile of projects waiting for me, and I saw this package leaning against my sewing cabinet. I really liked the fabrics in the kit and decided I would start yet another project. Of course, being a log cabin design helped. I love log cabins.

Well I made the right choice. You open the kit, look at the instructions, and they have it packaged in order of use to construct the project. How easy is that? Just lay it out and start sewing.

I had the four blocks finished in less than 45 minutes.

The top was done in an hour. Wow!!!

I decided to go ahead and quilt it myself on my Destiny using the Snap Hoop by Dime.

I had used the Snap Hoop before for an embroidery design and liked it, but let me tell you that using it for quilting is fantastic. You just literally "snap" the quilt sandwich into the hoop and pick your quilting design and stitch. Yes, there are multiple hoopings, but it's so easy with the Snap Hoop, just lift the magnetic top of the hoop, place your sandwich in the hoop and drop the top back on, make some minor adjustments and go again. I quilted the runner with an all over stipple using Exquisite variegated thread V104.

This was a quick, oh my gosh, I got it finished in one evening project. I will definitely make more. It was very rewarding. Come try one, I think you will really like doing these fun, easy projects. The table runners include the backing and binding. The quilts include the binding, but you do need to pick a backing.

Love 'em

Fat Quarter Pop-up

Fat Quarter Pop-up

July 2016 By Vickie Kiser

I am not kidding. This was done in an hour. I think it took me longer to decide what fabric I wanted to use than it was to make it. I finally decided to use this great piece I had left over from a market bag I had made. The pattern calls to use a fat quarter, but since my fabric was a one-way design, I had to use her requirement of 3/8 yard. Don't forget to pay attention during construction to make sure your pop-up is popping in the right direction. You will DEFINITELY need the 4 safety pins listed on the back, and you will want to use large ones.

Here's my finished pop-up. Cute huh?

 

And, pop-up refills are available at Green's also. Because, you will want to make more than one.

I hope you have as much fun making them as I did. Send us pics, we would love to see what you have come up with. You can share them on Green's facebook page or tag our location when you post the pics on your facebook page.
