This one features a lot of Moda fabrics again. But there are others thrown in there too. I love the deer button.
I know! They're getting out of hand! But this is another class sample. I have a few more to make and then I'll be back to quilts and costumes.
I experimented with this faux leather fabric. This is a different style tuffet in that it does not have multiple strips; instead it has larger panels. Just prove to be challenging in that the "shoulders" don't lie as flat as I would like them to. I did do some trimming and adjusting which yielded a more rounded top than usual.
I also use decorative nailhead brads on the bottom instead of the typical staples. They were challenging in their own way! I'm glad I did it, though. I learned a lot on this tuffet.
I finished the rainbow tuffet. It has 64 different fabrics in it! It will hang out at the Electric Needle on Odana Rd. in Madison for a while. I'll be teaching there in July!
And I love the feet. They're different from the others I've used before.
I can't wait to start teaching! I do a "practice run" on the staff at Quilt-agious next week (poor, poor guinea pigs). I have three customer classes scheduled there, starting in less than two weeks!
I just wanted to make a rainbow tuffet. The traditional tuffet takes 64 strips, so I decided to use 64 different pieces of fabric.
There were so many strips I had to turn the corner at the bottom!
This is a table runner that I made for the Minnesota Road Show several years ago. It's from a pattern called Bent Pieces from Maple Island Quilts. It features curved piecing and organic quilting.
It's not a long table runner. It measures approximately 17 1/2 x 52.
I hope that you can see the fabric and quilting better in this photo.
As you can see above, I changed thread for the different colors.
The best part? This quilt is for sale! I'm hoping to be able to set up a little shop on this site soon. I'll let you know when it's up!
I made this tuffet out of Moda's Mixologie line. Right now it's renting space at Bungalow Quilting and Yarn in Ripon until I get their sample to them. I have a class scheduled there, too!
The class is scheduled Thursdays, June 18 and 25, from 10 am to 2 pm. Call (902) 748-2905 to schedule!
I taught a class at Quilt-agious in Mukwonago last night. It's called "Big Sky" and it's from a book by Karen Montgomery.
This is one of those quilts that doesn't photograph very well. In person, the background blends together better than it seems to in the photo.
This was a fun quilt to make! It uses the Scrap Crazy 6 templates by Creative Grids. They are really nice templates because they are of the same quality as the Creative Grids rulers, complete with grippy edges and dots.
And what a fun group of women I got to teach! I'm really looking forward to next week!
