Broken Orange Peel Table Runner


i love sewing curves. i could sew curves all day long. it is a nice change of pace from just straight seams all the time. so when i saw that Sew Kind of Wonderful released a pieced orange peel pattern called Mod Citrus, i knew i had to try it out!

since i knew i didn't have time to start a new project, we were starting to pack up our old house at the time, i decided to just make a table runner from some of my bigger scraps. this is going to look great in our new house! (only a week until moving day!)


i used my low volume stash to make a scrappy background. i even pieced a few low volume on low volume orange peels to make a broken orange peel look.


for the quilting i did my standard straight line quilting, but then went back and echoed the orange peels and i love the effect. i think once we are settled in our new home, i am going to have to revisit this pattern and make a much bigger quilt, maybe even bed sized!

Quilt Stats:
Pattern: Mod Citrus by Sew Kind of Wonderful
Dimensions: 16 inches x 40 inches
Quilting: straight line with echoing of the orange peels
Fabric: various designers, including Alison Glass, Elizabeth Hartman, Karen Lewis, and some Cotton+Steel

  1. Oh so beautiful! I have trouble sewing curves but I sure love looking at them. Love that background too, pops beautifully against the bright orange peels!

  2. I so love this. It is simple and fun and just terrific. What a great finish - especially love the touch of going back and emphasizing the peels!

Mini Modern Maples Cushion Cover | Scrap Project 6

Ahh, I just love fall! Hands down my favorite season, especially in the UP. There are a few leaves starting to change color and I'm so excited. I'm looking forward to a color tour in a few weeks and really hope I have a few quilts done so I can take some quilt in the wild photos. So with fall rolling in, I figured I would make a fun little fall inspired cushion cover. And since I've been on small scale sewing kick, I thought a mini modern maple cover was just what I needed for my living room. Plus, lets face it this was just a perfect reason to dig through the scrap bins and use up those small little scraps. My mini maple block finishes at 3 inches and when added to a mini 9 patch block it makes for a lovely scrappy cushion cover. For the quilting a did a orange peel design and while a little wonky, I love it! Lately I've been at a lose as to what I want to quilt on my quilts, so this was a nice change. I quilted this cover on my Janome HD9. This bab

Bonnie & Camille Sampler Quilt | A Finished Quilt

so last year i taught a BOM at my local quilt shop. i had already made up the sample quilt, so i needed to make blocks along with my students. well thank goodness for a couple of Bonnie & Camille layer cakes just waiting for the perfect project. the blocks are for the Vice Versa Sampler Quilt from AnnaMarie Chaney ( here is my original quilt ) but this time i decided use the Bonfire Sampler (also from AnnaMarie Chaney) setting for this set of blocks. i love those big HST they just work for this quilt! i just love this quilt and always knew it would be given to someone. i just didn't know who that someone would be. well as i was quilting this up, it finally occurred to me who i would send this along too. when we moved, one of the girl's church grandmas was rather heartbroken that we were moving. so i sent this to her as a surprise and when it showed up she called telling me that this just made her day! and that right there is why i quilt!

2017 New Quilt Blogger Blog Hop

for the last several weeks i have been participating in the 2017 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop, hosted by Yvonne ( Quilting Jet Girl ), Beth ( Cooking Up Quilts ), and Leanne ( She Can Quilt ). while i have been blogging for a little while, this blog hop has been great to hone my blogging skills and meet other quilt bloggers. i have been crafty most of my life, i even learned to sew when i was younger. but it didn't really stick. after college i was living in Iowa and on a whim i bought a cheap sewing machine and began a back and forth with sewing. fast forward a few years, i got married and pulled that sewing machine out again and this time actually made a quilt top (that sat for at least 3 years before i quilted it). sewing again was pushed to the side as i was finishing my master's program and job hunting.  well after landing a job, moving, looking for a house. we found out we were expecting. though it was not to be and i miscarried in march 2011. during the next ye
