This is my main quilt and 2 of those hot pads on the left are mine. But I have no idea who made those placemats on the right.
I was really glad that RJR incuded info about me and my trusty machine quilting friends.
This is the little table topper I made.
Hmm I didn't know this pattern was going to be a free download. I learned something! ;-). I assume that will coincide with the release of the fabric because my patterns are not done yet. ha
And here is my table runner. I made more projects using their fabric but they were not in the booth at market.
The month of September is still somewhat of a blurr for me as I had 30 days to make 10 individual items for market. It is always good to push ourselves and see what we can do. I was a few days late for my deadline with the last couple items, but I did the best I could.
"Everything But the Kitchen Sink 2011" is a fabric line coming out from RJR fabrics in early spring 2011. There are 45 fabrics in this line and a chef panel featuring 8 different reproduction vingettes from 30's embroidery designs. The 'Kitchen Sink' line naturally falls into a kitchen theme. And I love kitchen fabrics, 30's fabrics and kitchen designs.
My main quilt is a combination of applique, block construction and the chef panel scenes. Wren Woodland of Highland did such a fantastic job. The quilt was really fun to design and make.
Another shot of the table topper. I liked making Dresden baskets to balance out the chef designs. This was quilted by Wendy at Eagle Mountain Quilting. Again, it was fun to construct.
I had lots of little projects, and I don't even have photos of all of them. I was in such an incredible hurry to mail, I didn't take final photos of everything. This is a clothespin holder.
Using the chef panel designs I made easy pot holders. Then to try to show off more of the fabric I made patchwork binding.I made 2 tea towels by just fussy cutting a chef panel and then top stitching it to a flower sack towel. I covered the edges with another row of rick rack and finished off the edge with binding.Using my "All Dressed Up" pattern, I made a baby sized quilt. This 'Kitchen Sink' line has some juvenile novelty fabrics included. Again, Wren's quilting was fantastic. This photo was taken as I was hand stitching binding before mailing it off (next day air!).I just have to show you a little bit of my embellishment. It is always my favorite part to fussy up parts of my quilts.Each dress is unique. This fabric line was a great inspiration and worked really well for my patterns.I also made a bag using my "Mixed Bag" pattern. I used premade handles for it to hurry things up. I can't believe I took a photo of the back!
It is a great opportunity to have projects I've designed and sewn featured in a booth at quilt market. I enjoyed using this new fabric line. All the 'Kitchen Sink' lines have been favorites of mine for years.
