It's My Day for Blogathon Canada, Pattern and Tutorial and a Give Away

Hi everyone, it's my first time and I'm so excited to be joining in the 3rd Annual Blogathon Canada, hosted by
  Sew Sisters!!


Today is coming to you from Ontario Canada


There is so much to do in Ontario, just like the ads say, "Yours to Discover"!
Ontario is the second largest province, has 250,000 lakes, 7 of the 42 National Parks, approx. 330 Provincial Parks, is the home of our nation's capital- Ottawa, the largest city in Canada- Toronto, touches all but one great lake, and Niagara Falls. 

I live in a small rural area that boasts its own charms...Highland Games (70th year), World's largest one day Maple Syrup Festival, 22nd annual Parade of Lights (Christmas Parade at night), Canada's largest year round Farmer's Market, Museums and  there have been approx. 13 movies shot in and around our little town. I love where I live!!
Parade is full of well lit tractors!!


For those of you who are new to my blog my name is Sandy, I'm a mother of 3 wonderful adults, plus a new son-in-law!! I've been married to my farm boy for 29 years and love our rural life!! Farm life has included over the years helping in the barn with the animals, driving a tractor , and now I help with the bookkeeping. 
I have always loved crafting/being creative and have tried my hand at many different mediums over the years, like knitting; crochet; cross stitch; tole painting; ceramics; woodworking; scrapbooking, photography, sewing.... you name it I've probably tried it or wanted to try it!!
Quilting just showed up on my radar about 3 yrs ago, and from the moment I started I was hooked. I'm a non recovering fabric hoarder, start way too many projects at the same time and love block of the months (great way to skill build)
I mostly blog about my quilting adventures, but have thrown in some family fun and keeping it real moments from my life! :) I'm all about keeping it short and sweet on the words (most of the time) and adding lots of pictures and an occasional pattern/tutorial !!


Don't forget to check out Lorna my fellow host today ,  at Sew Fresh Quilts

The prize I get to give away today sponsored by Sew Sisters is a FQ Bundle featuring  Winter Wonderland by Bunny Hill for Moda

Don't forget to read to the bottom (or let's be honest, skim!! : ) to get in on the give away!!

So let's get on with the fun stuff....



Building Christmas Joy Table Runner
or Building Christmas Table Runner, being as I ended up making 2 runners with 2 applique features!
I am using FQs of Winter Wonderland by BunnyHill for Moda with Kona Lipstick and Snow for the front piecing. The applique and backing are Essentials by Wilmington Prints. 
The brick sections of this pattern would work great with some leftover  jelly roll strips too!

The PDF pattern  below is straight forward, just follow the cutting instructions and the colour coded  sections for the order to sew your bricks to you centre sections. ( I say straight forward, laughing at myself, who messed up her own pattern by cutting the centre section wrong, twice!! lol! So if you look closely my  bottom bricks are unevenly offset!! oops.)
I used Heat"n"Bond light for the applique and also added a lightweight interfacing to the back of my centre section. Just trace the letters on the heat and bond and rough cut them and apply to back of fabric according to package directions. Then cut them out on the drawn lines and apply to your centre section.


The font is called Christmas Card and is a free font download at Dafont.com



I used a blanket stitch to overcast the raw edge. I set my stitch to 3.5 width and 2.5 length (Pfaff PassPort)




The quilting is a digital pattern called Winter Wonderland, how appropriate!!


Joy Version

I used the font Jester. The J was printed at 700 and the remaining letters 500. (for reference if you want to try a different font)


I cut some squares that I folded in half and sewed in when adding the binding, so now it can be used as a wall hanging!


Fabric used is  Figgy Pudding, Kona Snow and Grunge for the applique, sorry don't know the name of the mitten fabric.






Folded Coasters


I had some extra material so I thought I would make some coasters.... I used this pattern, by The Craftsy Mummy, last year changing  it ever so slightly. Link to original is found below

For each coaster:
Cut (6) 4.5 inch squares of printed fabric (backing, 4 folded on top and an inside lining)
      (1) 4" piece of  interfacing (I used Pellon fusible)
 Fuse the interfacing to the wrong side of what will be your backing.
 Lay another square right side up on top, so you have wrong sides together on the inside of the sandwich. This "lining" piece is optional, if you are going to add any quilting or stitching once you turn the coaster right side out, you don't need it. If you are going to leave it free so a wine glass stem base can slip inside, it is nice for the inside to be finished and not show batting.

 Now take the last four squares and press in half wrong sides together, right side out!
Place one half square raw edges even and fold to the centre
 Place the second across the bottom again raw edges aligned and fold to centre.
 3rd folded square
 4th square you weave in, remembering, fold to centre, raw edges aligned.
 Now stitch a 1/4" seam all around the outside edge. You will probably want to use a few pins to hold fabric in place while you sew.



Trim corners and turn right side out, and press.

* don't serge your edges, I thought it would be great, but it is too bulky.





Next week I will be posting a tutorial on the Coaster Tray I made to hold them all!! So don't forget to come back and check it out!!
