Modern Quilting for the Home

Hi guys! 
I recently {as in last week, tee-hee} hosted a blog collaboration with a wonderful group of ‘sewing/quilting’ bloggers.  You can read the full details of the collaboration here, but I’ll sum it up by saying it was a creative challenge to work with a small amount of supplies and create a project with a modern twist using a classic pattern … FOR THE HOME.
 
The reason I wanted to re-cap and share with 30 Handmade Days readers is to again encourage you to give sewing and/or quilting a try. {I need a cheerleader outfit that says GO SEWING!!} It doesn’t take a lot of materials to get started. It doesn’t have to be ‘your grandmother’s kinda quilting’ {even if you’re using the same kinds of patterns and techniques}. AND it doesn’t have to be a big time commitment. 
 
Here are {6} wonderful examples of fresh, fun and fast projects you can create for YOUR  home.
 
They all started with this bundle::
 
Kona Cotton Solids Charm pack
1/2 YD Kona Cotton Solid in Iron & Oyster
{fabric donated by Robert Kaufman fabrics}
 
 
 
And turned it into this::
 
1. Grocery Bag Holder / Two More Seconds

2. Table Topper {Tutorial} / Lovely Little Handmades

3. Heating Pad Cover / Pleasant Home

4. Mug Rugs / Everyday Beautiful

5. Table Topper / Diary of a Quilter

6. Table Runner {Tutorial} / Knitty Bitties
 
Isn’t that so cool? I just love seeing how six different creative minds took the same set of materials and came up with six unique {even the three table toppers/runners are completely different} projects. 
 
You can visit each blogger’s post by clicking on their blog name under the project image. Several of them include a tutorial on how they made their project while others refer to/link to the tutorial/pattern they used.
 
For the beginner sewer, these projects make take you a week to complete {given the realities of life interrupting} … for a seasoned sewer, any of these would make a perfect weekend project.
 
For more Knitty Bitties, you can find me rambling on my Blog; trying to keep connected on Facebooktweeting on Twitter, pinning on Pinterest and my latest love, Instagram! Or check out my previous 30days posts here.
