|Two quilted totes, two pencil cases, one wristlet, one Christmas tree table runner and one Oh, Canada! table runner|
The Christmas tree table runner was one of first things I made, I was so excited about it! It's made from a layer cake (10" square precut) and using a wedge template it was super easy to cut out the trees perfectly! Here's the tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Company I used. I was too excited to get started on this easy project that I didn't want to drive a ways to get a template in a store or order it online and wait for it come in the mail so I made my own! (If you would like to buy your own template, MSCQ makes a 10" wedge, check it out here)
I used the cardboard piece on the bottom of the layer cake. The long sides of the triangle needed to be 10 inches (it's an isosceles triangle) so it was a perfect fit!

|You can make it as long as you like, just add more trees!|
The quilted totes are made from charm packs, very little cutting required. Here's the tutorial I used from Missouri Star Quilt Company (I really like Jenny's quick and easy classes that use precuts!).
I learned from my Etsy shop that my pencil cases were very popular so I made some more as presents! Here's the link to the Bag Making Basics free class on Craftsy that I used to make them.
I couldn't resist the Oh, Canada! quilt pattern Booger sent me from Etsy! Some day I'd like to make the whole quilt but just for today I made one block as a short table runner. The finished size is about 12" x 24" or (30.5 x 61cm for the Canadians out there!). It's a gift for one of our relatives that live in Canada. It was my first attempt at appliqué and I am excited at how it turned out!
|This also involved crazy piecing, what fun!|
