Clara's Garden Charm Projects

KT Winner

Congrats to - 
Sitting here in Buffalo with 60 inches of snow - Please send me some SUNSHINE...Love your books - Clara's quilt looks like a challenge I can't resist! Checking my stash today...Judy R from Buffalo -
you've won a Clara's Garden Jelly Roll and booklet. Thanks to everyone for visiting my blog. 

Seedlings

Our charm pattern for the Clara's Garden fabric collection is as simple (and addictive) as planting the first seedlings in their little peat pots each spring. We sewed rows of charm squares together, added borders, sandwiched the quilt, then appliqued the melons onto the runner as we quilted it. So fast, so fun, so cool! Add buttons from Hillcreek Designs that blend perfectly with KT fabrics for the finishing touch. We'll have button packs available in December when the patterns are done.

Seedlings Runner 22" x 53"
 I loved the charm runner when Lois brought it back and wondered what it would look like done up with a mini charm pack. I think it's the perfect compliment as a pillow sleeve. Same technique, more buttons. Gotta love it! We're working on a template for the melon wedges - large & small - so check back here for more info.

  2. Sweet fabric for a lovely pillow sleeve! It's a beautiful design.
    I have quilts hanging on walls and adorning my couches and beds. I am particularly fond of the ones sitting there ready to warm me up when I'm at my computer though. Sometimes they have cats on them :-)

  8. I don't have many quilts to decorate with (yet). The ones I do have are draped on the couch or loveseat. I really like to make seasonal quilts and table toppers and placemats. When we get moved and settled, I'd like to hang mini quilts throughout the house. :)

    I use quilts to hang on the walls, over chairs, on my tables (table runners), each bed, and I have some rolled and put in baskets and crocks. I have them everywhere. I have an open staircase where I have a flag quilt hanging.

  12. I don't have a Christmas table runner. Also like the pillow sleeve. I need to get my Christmas quilt out of the closet, to enjoy this season....now that it is finally quilted!!

  13. I hang a large quilt on my family room wall,add in a couple of wall hangings, three more folded on the rungs of a ladder, one on the back of a couch, repeat same sequence in the living room and Christmas quilts on the guest rooms beds. You can never have too many quilts. Table toppers are hooked rugs, not quilts.

  14. My favorite way is to hang one in the bathroom. I mean, everyone uses the bathroom so everyone gets to see my finished projects!

  16. Congratulations lucky winner! L*O*V*E the pillow sleeve! I have many areas to hang quilts on my walls, but the place I love to display my quilts is an old painters ladder.

  17. I have table runners on all of my tables (big and small); quilts draped over the doors of and piled in my primitive cupboards in addition to adorning chairs, upstairs railing and quilt stands and all of my beds. There is nothing better than curling up under a quilt on a cold-winter's night! They also help to make a house look warm and cozy! Nancy

  19. Small wall Christmas quilts are hung by the entrance door, each bed is topped with the favorite Christmas quilt, my hubby has his favorite flannnel log cabin quilt in the recliner, and of course the Lone Star quilt that is made with KT fabrics is drapped over the back of the sofa.

  32. I haven't consciously decorated with quilts, but inadvertently I would say as forts, as hiding places, snuggling spots on the couch and of course on the bed.

  41. That's a darling table runner! My favorite way to use quilts is to drape them over a big quilt rack in my upstairs hallway, where I can see them all day. I also have a quilt across the back of my sofa.

  42. Quilts on walls, beds, and on top of tables and benches. My favourite would be to hang them on the wall though.

  43. Congrats to Judy! She's going to need some stitching to keep her busy until all that snow melts!
    Love the seedlings table runner! And, looks even nicer as a pillow! For decorating with quilts, my favorite is to have them on the backs of chairs and sofas... that way they are very easily available to grab and wrap yourself in one for a good nap! :-)

  44. I love to hang them on walls. My husband actually made the comment once that quilts were "to be for beds not decorating". Gasp! :) I think he's gotten used to them on the walls now though.

    ReplyDelete
  45. On walls, tabletops, the backs of rockers and sofas, and quilt racks. In crocks rolled up, vintage doll beds, baskets.cabinets and old suitcases.
    You name it ad I probably have a quilt there!
