See my earlier post about the sewing drive here!!
This is the finished table topper I made using Elizabeth Hartman’s paper-piecing technique I learned from her at a class I took at Modern Domestic in NE Portland, OR. I wrote about it a while back but I never posted photos of the finished product! I made the backing using scraps left over from the spiderweb piecing. I absolutely love it - this table topper also marks the beginning of my fascination with grays. I got most of the fabrics from cool cottons in SE Portland and a few from Bolt in NE PDX. I machine quilted it using my Bernina Stitch Regulator.
Pillowcases I made using the free pattern @ http://www.allpeoplequilt.com/millionpillowcases/freepatterns/. My sister and I attended a free class today at SewPo in North Portland taught by a young BUT extremely talented intern. We used donated fabrics to make pillowcases with different piping and cuffs and donated them to the cause. The pillowcases in my photo don’t have piping (I am sick and delirious and so simple seemed best) and use the same cuff and main pillow fabric. I plan on making more, though, with different fabrics and will post them to my blog when I’m done! The fabric used on my new pillowcases was purchased at Bolt in NE Portland - sale fabric for $5/yard! Major score
