Project

Autumn Tree Skirt, Mitt, Runner, MugMats

My first "real" machine piecing & quilting project... Just in time to decorate my year-round tree for fall! I used a jelly roll from the Perfectly Seasoned collection by Sandy Gervais for Moda. This "quilt as you go" technique made it very user-friendly for a beginner like me. Thank you, Caroline & Craftsy for a beautiful design & great instruction! EDIT: I also used small pieces of the leftovers from a couple of the strip sets to make an oven mitt -- my first! I followed the instructions (not nearly as clear as Caroline's!) that came with some Insul-Bright I bought to go in the middle along with a layer of the leftover cotton batting, and used a bias tape maker I got here on Craftsy to make the cuff binding. Later, I used leftover backing & some matching charm squares to make a pretty matching table runner (adapted from a design by Jessica Schwisow of joyoushome.com.) UPDATE: 1 year later, I improvised a mug mat with more of the leftover strips & squares, and added an applique candy corn on the front. I've never applique'd anything before & it shows... (should've looked for a Craftsy class!) Then, used the remaining charm squares to make a set of co-ordinating coasters/mug mats.
