Sweet Mint Table Runner

Sweet Mint is a pattern by Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts. A few years ago while working at a LQS, I demoed the Sweet Mint templates showing how to cut and sew the pieces together. But I never finished the project! Last month I pull out this UFO, finished the top as a table runner. This past week I completed the quilting and binding. Yippie! a UFO checked off the list!


Quilted, and binding made from scraps.

Last week I spent some time teaching a friend how to make pillow cases using the Burrito Method. We used a Serger though, instead of French Seams. Much quicker!

Shown are just a few of the 24 pillow cases made. These will be going to the charity Case for Smiles.

How did I do on last week’s To-Do List?

  1. Complete next step in the In Box Jaunt Quilt-Along.  ✔️ Sandwiched and SITD quilted.
  2. Sew up May block for the Sit Down Free Motion Quilters BOM.  ✗ Didn’t touch this one.
  3. Quilt Dresden Plate table runner as part 3 of my OMG. ✔️ Completed!

This week’s To-Do List:

  1. Part 4 of my OMG is to quilt another table topper – Jolene Star.
  2. Thursday I meet with my Curvy Quilters group. I’ll be working on more improv piecing for the Facets quilt.
  3. Enjoy time with family. I don’t think I’ll be fitting in any more sewing/quilting this coming week.

I’m linking to To-Do Tuesday and Linky Tuesday.

Oh! And this was a fun surprise this morning! My last week’s post about poor tension was featured on Connie’s blog Freemotion by the River.

    I love the table runner. Don’t you feel great getting that finished?! What type of sit-down mid/long arm machine do you have? I have just started looking at them, and am getting friend’s opinions. ~smile~

    Yay for a completed UFO! And, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your quilting! How are you enjoying your machine? I also really like how your scrappy bindings turn out. I’m definitely putting that on my to-try list one of these days!
