Tea Towel Tutorial

Hi Gals!  I am back again with a fun and FASTULOUS (fast/fabulous) tutorial.  I am always in search for a fun neighbor gift and this fits that to a Tea.  Or maybe you just need a fashionable towel for yourself to wipe your holiday grimies on.  Hope you enjoy!

Supplies List:
  • 1 tea towel (I am using a Indo teal towel which measures 20 1/2" x 28")
  • 5 - 5" red squares
  • 1 - 1 1/2" x 22" red
  • 5 - green buttons (I am using a variety of fabulous Riley Blake buttons)

First, I must say that I did not think up this idea, rather I saw it on Pinterest (ADDICTED, I'm just sayin') which took me to this link and then I tweaked it a bit.  I had some left over 5" charm squares and so I changed up the measurements to use them. 

Sew here, is how it goes...
  • For each 5" square fold in half diagonally and press.  Fold in half again and press to create a prairie point.
  •  Lay five prairie points across tea towel with the raw edges being approximately 4" from the bottom. Pin in place.

  • Prepare 1 1/2" x 22" strip by folding each end in and pressing so that the finished length measures the width of your towel.  Press under each long edge 1/2".
  • Pin over prairie points.

  • Sew in place.
  • Sew a button at the tip of each point.

That's have a fastulous home-made gift!

The Tale of Three Trees Tutorial

I just posted the following tutorial on my Pine Mountain blog and wanted to be sure to share it with all my Pine Needles friends.   Read on and enjoy!

Once upon a mountain top, three little trees stood and dreamed of what they wanted to become when they grew up. The first little tree looked up at the stars and said......

That is the start of One of my favorite books for Christmas, or really it is such a beautiful folktale for for any time. If you have not read this book - please do, it will inspire and uplift you.

And today, in honor of one of my favorite books I hope you enjoy my gift to you, the paper piece pattern 'Three Trees"

I love the odd angles of the trees, and the folk art affect of the quilting.
  • Download and print pattern
  • Paper piece project using pattern provided, white background, and three different green fabrics. (See tutorial below if you are unfamiliar with paper piecing)

  • Sandwich paper pieced top, batting and background fabric.
  • Draw lines for tree trunks.

  • Chain stitch trunks using 2 ply brown floss.

  • Using 2 ply red floss quilt a running stitch through all layers along each seam as illustrated.

  • Frame, make an ornament, mug rug, or small pillow.

If you are not familiar with paper pieceing - here is a fabulous tutorial found on Youtube.

Post a comment and I will draw a random number to receive a free frame as shown in my model. Enjoy!

Wonky Winter is here!

I am so excited to show you my newest quilt
"Wonky Winter". 

I have enjoyed every process in my Wonky series. A bit of piecing, wonky style of course, a bit of applique, just the right amount of embroidery and hello, hexagons - Love 'em.  For this design I wanted a quilt that I could enjoy at Christmas but also thru the remaining cold winter nights. 

This is the companion to my two quilts Wonky Wildflowers and Wonky Fall Foliage.

Coming in January is the final quit in this series.

Wonky Love

Here is a little teaser!

I hope you enjoy!
