Sunday Sewday

Here are a few things I worked on this last Sunday. Feels so go to be back enjoying my Sundays in the sewing room!
I finished the 2nd little quilt from this kit. The kit includes the fabric to make this table runner either in the size shown or up to one 40" long. Then, make the table topper from leftover 60 degree triangles. Kit includes a paper 60 degree template to use if you don't have a 60 degree ruler. Kit for these two little quilts and pattern is just $24.

I also bordered out this Grandparents House Rules panel, using the same design as Lonnie came up with for our Love You to the Moon and Back panel.
The last project I worked on Sunday was this Feel Better Blankie. That's the name our grand kids gave to theirs. Whenever one of them is under the weather, they get out this blankie and it magically makes them feel better.

The secret ingredient is Moda's plush Fireside fabric on the back. After quilting, the backing is trimmed to 2 1/2" larger than the quilt top and folded to the front. Because it is a polyester product, you don't even need to turn the raw edges under, just zigzag it to the quilt, folding the corners to miter. 

The beauty of this is you can make a comfort quilt very quickly. I made this one for a friend who has just been diagnosed with a serious kidney disease that requires chemo pills for treatment. I hope this little lap throw will make her "feel better".
