hi all ~ wow… our american thanksgiving is coming so quickly upon us!

well… i’ve been keeping my nose to the grindstone, well, actually to the sewing needle!  and, recently, i’ve been dedicating some major quilting time to learning my new bernina q20 mid-arm, sit-down, quilting machine, and i love every minute!   i’ve taken on a few select custom quilting order quilting large-size quilts, and it’s been a fun adventure! i’ll show some of those shots, later…

and… while i’ve not had time to get high quality {from the ‘good’ camera} photos and edits for the blog, i do enjoy showing my ‘in process’ photos via social media, on my instagram account, and facebook on my convenient little iphone!  it’s always fun to share!

today’s project is once again, going back to “the stash” and creating a thanksgiving-themed runner, this time though, a different shape. it’s a pretty oval, perfect for any thanksgiving decorating or tablescape you might want to use it for!  i used my basic collage tablerunner pattern to create this beauty!

this pretty one is hanging at the quiltAway shop for another class, coming in december:

and i’m keeping very active, teaching my favorite things, too! while i am doing some limited travel in the state to teach i am also busy prepping for classes here in great falls, at my favorite shop, the quiltAway:

a very fun opportunity to hear how i quilt my collages, where i share lots of tips on manipulating the quilt sandwich, and quilting motifs, showing how to get that collage completely finished, layered up and quilted, with tips on how to finish binding, too!

and i’ve added a great BASIC class, where knowledge of tension, needle and threads will help you not only sew garments, but into the piecing of a quilt as well as free motion quilting, too!  lots of great info and handouts will be shared.

and we’ve added another “create collage” class for december 2nd and 3rd {a tuesday/wednesday} upon request!  you get to pick the pattern you want, and put together a beautiful collage using pretty florals and prints.

happy monday folks!
best to you this day, and into the week!
soli deo gloria!

  1. I really love this. I'm going to have to try the technique sometime. I imagine I'd have to collect some fabrics first. Yours is beautiful!
