Christmas Sewing

Here is a purchased tea towel embellished to match a gingerbread man potholder (potholder tutorial here).
For the tea towel, I used the free pattern which can be found at the Fort Worth Quilting Studio.

This design could be incorporated into a cute mug rug.
A Mary Engelbreit storybook quilt.
To make this quilt, I used a panel which was intended to make a cloth book.

Instead I cut out the pages and added red polka dot borders and black polka dot corner stones, in typical Mary Engelbreit style.

For the quilting, I did some wavy lines in the red borders, X's in the black cornerstones, and meandering everywhere else.  And I knew immediately that the binding would be candy cane stripes.
Thank you for stopping by!
Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts.

The story book quilt is all kinds of awesome! What a GREAT idea!! I have seen the panels for books, thought nah, I don't really want to make a book. . . but a quilt?? Oh YES sign me up! :)

Love the storybook quilt. I think it worked out better as a quilt instead of the book. Gives me ideas. Thanks so much for sharing.
