Hello Quilters.  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  What did you do?  I played.  I had some left over pieces from a table runner that I was making for the Attic Window Quilt Shop for their Jingle Bell Hop and decided to not let them go to waste.  I made a hot dish mat and a coaster.
 This is a close up of the hot dish mat. 
I hesitate to show you this coaster, because it is far from perfect, but figure it will be okay to use during the upcoming holidays.
I also made this hot dish mat. After experimenting unsuccessfully with free motion quilting, I was going to throw it away.  Then wondered if it would look any better with a binding.  Guess it's not too bad and may come in handy when I need another hot dish mat when company comes during the holidays. 

  • The Sixth Annual Jingle Bell Hop is November 8, 9, 10.  Four quilt shops are participating.  A free pattern comes with the purchase of your passport.  Grand Prizes of $200 in gift cards will be awarded to some lucky participants.  Are you one?

These are fantastic left over makes, Caroll! Your coaster may not be perfect but its festiveness way out shines any imperfections.

I was in the store today for the Jingle Bell Hop and I didn’t see a pattern for the table runner. I thought it was beautiful.
