Happy To "See You In September"-My Day!

Welcome
On This Wonderful September Fall Day!


Today I get to show three projects I've made over the summer. 
One of the projects is to include Riley Blake Gingham fabric.
(Plus I have included a Giveaway!)


Let's begin on our back deck! 
#1
Square Ruler Table Runner


My hubby and son recently made this great table for our deck.  
There is a hidden compartment in the center 
for ice, beverages, flowers or food!
I wanted to make something special for when the girls are here!
The instructions are Here.
However--I had to change things and make it a little different!










The idea for the squared table runner came from making
 these this past Christmas for my quilting friends!




#2
iPad Stands (Two)




This one is for my mom!







And this one I am keeping!

I have already watched several quilt classes from this stand.







Have also found that you can prop a 
quilt/cook book, when you need to following along.










This also can be used with your iPhone too!

#3
Project "Save The Gingham" click here





















Is this Traditional, Modern or Contemporary?
I am not sure!




The Giveaway is for 2 people!
There are  two "Sweet Celebrations"
 by Moda Bake Shop Chefs books each with a 
1/2 yard of gingham apron fabric.
Isn't this so.....appropriate?


I will send anywhere!


You do not have to follow to win!
Just leave a comment for 1 chance.

2nd chance...
As a thank you, if you are or just became a follower, leave an
additional comment telling me how you follow.



The giveaway closes midnight 9/19,
I will announce the winner on the  9/20.

  4. Thank you for sharing the links to all your projects - I really think some Ipad stands need to be added to the Christmas list. Your quilt is a very old traditional pattern, but the fabrics give it a different look indeed - nicely done.

    I love your gingham quilt. I have templates and a pattern for this one I think that I have used for other quilts but would never have thought to use gingham. Gingham does make every pattern look new and refreshed.
    The square runner looks great on your table. Sew creative! Thanks for sharing your beautiful summer ... :) Pat

  95. Helen, I could spend the day reading your blog. I've been a follower but it's been a long time since I've visited. I hope to correct my mistake because you have so many wonderful projects and tips. I had to remind myself to return and comment on your beautiful quilts because I got lost in some of your previous blog posts. The one on how to block a quilt had me oohing and aweing (is that spelling correct?) Anyhooo I enjoyed my visit.
