Christmas Table Set | Finished Projects

 


Time for more catching up to do! I enjoy blogging, but it is something that I'm not doing as much. Especially right now, I am just not finishing a lot of projects due to moving, starting work again, homeschooling, and just feeling like I'm overloaded. 

I picked up a half yard bundle of this Kringle and Claus fabric from Basic Grey from work. I just knew it would be nice to make some projects to dress up my table for Christmas time!

First I finished this Lil' Diana table runner pattern from GE Designs. It uses a pack of charm squares or you could use your scraps. I had this cut out in one evening and stitched up the next day! I used stitch #1397 on my Bernina 790 Special Edition, my favorite serpentine stitch. Really one of my favorite for quick quilting.


Next I made up some patchwork placemats using this tutorial from SOTAK Handmade. I love this design for a placemat and will most defiantly making more in the coming months. This work perfectly with little kiddos, especially with using a darker fabric in the center to help conceal stains.


 Finally I made a One Hour Basket. I use this to hold all of our cloth napkins. This is another great way to make your table a bit more festive for the season or holiday that is near. I think a Valentine's basket is in my near future!

I still have plenty of fabric left from my bundle and think I'm going to make a quick and easy Christmas quilt for next year, hopefully!

Did you make any home decor projects for you home for Christmas?

Happy Sewing!

  1. What cute fabric, and I love the bin! This year I didn't do any Christmas projects for my house, which is a bit unusual compared to other years. I did make more gifts (last minute) this year than others, thuogh!

  2. Love the placemats and bin. I’m thinking that’s a great idea for napkins and will make one!

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

2019 Quilters Meet & Greet

Benita of Victoriana Quilt Designs approached me if I wanted to participate in a Quilter's Meet and Greet. And since both kiddos are in school this year, I actually have a little more time to actually blog, so I figured this was a great time to join the fun. So here is a little more about me, my quilting journey, and life in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan! Hi! I'm Jess Pugh and I grew up in Ludington, Michigan, famous for the Lake Michigan Carferry the S.S. Badger . Went to Michigan State University for my undergrad in botany and later my Master's at University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee for my MLIS. I was set up with my husband on a blind date, and were married 6 months later. In January 2020 we will be celebrating 12 years of marriage! This by far was one of the craziest things I've done!

Buffalo Plaid Quilt : A Finished Quilt

my last big Christmas gift is done! this year i wanted to make my BIL and SIL quilts, as i've made quilts for the kiddos, i figured it was their turn for a quilt. well i needed one more masculine quilt and i've always wanted to make a buffalo plaid quilt so this was perfect! at first i was not looking forward to making this one, with all of the cutting and putting the small squares together. but after some thinking i decided i would strip piece and streamline the process. i was able to piece the top together in one day as opposed to multiple days if i would have cut individual squares. i love this quilt, of course i now want to make one for myself, but that will be for another time. Quilt Stats Pattern: designed by me, inspired by buffalo plaid scarves and quilts Dimensions: 61.5 inches x 74.5 inches Quilting: Straight line echo Fabric: Moda Bella solids, Black, Gray, Bleached White, and Marigold for the binding Happy Sewing!
