|Twisted Workshop, September 20th - So adorable in brights!|
Don't you just love a warm & cozy pair of argyle sox in winter? My husband, Robert, has a couple pair of alpaca sox he calls his "happy sox" because they keep his feet so warm it makes him smile. :) I played with my new KT Diamond Templates and figured out a way to make a striking argyle pattern easily. Our strippy quilt is 2 fabrics sewn together, alternating medium/dark prints. I layered/fused 2 small diamonds over a large diamond to create the effect, then simply laid them end-to-end on the seam lines and topstitched. So fast & easy!
|Argyle Sox Lap Quilt 66" x 78" JR + 2 fabrics|
I can see this done up in school colors for cuddling in the stands at football games or a dorm room. What colors would you choose?
|Argyle Sox Runner|
I love the 4th of July and try to make a new red/tan/blue project each year. This runner lived on my kitchen table all summer as a great backdrop for my holiday decor without competing for attention. I can't wait to finish my fall version with leftover JR strips and rich chocolate browns. Here's the computer generated version.
Both of these projects are found in our new Oak Haven booklet
