Quilt block clock

My sister sent me this pattern and I thought it would look so cute in my sewing room. Unfortunately this means I won't be able to use the "I lost track of time" excuse when I'm sewing anymore. The clock is 12" square and I used a scrapbook frame for it (minus the glass).  I made a dresden plate block using the Easy Dresden ruler. After adding the center circle I quilted a wonky spiral in the center, around each petal of the dresden plate, and echo quilted the background, using the edge of the presser foot as a guide (it's a wide presser foot). The fabric is Moda's Sophie and white Kona cotton. It was a lot of fun to make-almost instant gratification. Plus it's useful.

Christmas tree skirt

I finished this tree skirt in record time-about 2 days before Christmas. Maybe 3. At first I thought of it as a small project that I could get done really quickly. Then I realized it's the size of a lap quilt. But somehow I got it done. I used a layer cake from Moda called Twelve Days of Christmas and a free tutorial from the Moda Bake Shop called Fruitcake Under My Tree. I didn't want to use yardage for the setting triangles so I sewed extra layer cake squares together for that. I LOVE it even though my seam matching leaves a lot to be desired. The binding fabric is some yardage by Robert Kaufman.

and under our little tree (our last real tree-we bought a fake one after Christmas)
