May you have lots of help in your cooking endeavors this weekend!  We would like to leave you with this Thanksgiving poem that someone sent to us, author unknown, that we would like to share with you.

‘Twas the night of Thanksgiving,
But I just couldn’t sleep.
I tried counting backwards,
I tried counting sheep.

The leftovers beckoned…
The dark meat and white,
But I fought the temptation
With all of my might.

Tossing and turning with anticipation,
The thought of a snack became infatuation.
So, I raced to the kitchen, flung open he door,
And gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore.
Gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes,
Pickles and carrots, beans and tomatoes.

I felt myself swelling so plump and so round,
‘Til all of a sudden, I rose off the ground.
I crashed through the ceiling, floating into the sky,
With a mouthful of pudding and a handful of pie.
But, I managed to yell as I soared past the trees….
Happy eating to all – pass the cranberries, please.

May your stuffing be tasty,
May your turkey be plump.
May your potatoes ‘n gravy have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious.
May your pies take the prize,
May your Thanksgiving dinner stay off your thighs!!

Quilt Fabric Christmas Ornament Part 3

Welcome to week 3 of our FREE Christmas ornament tutorials.  This week, as a bonus, our tutorial actually features an ornament AND a package tag.  The inspiration for this week’s project came from another project that we will be sharing with you in a couple of weeks.  We used a panel for that project and we had a few leftover panel blocks which we put to use as an ornament and a package tag.

What do you do with left over blocks from panels? The first project below is to create a package gift tag. This doesn’t need to be holiday specific. These gift tags can be used any time a gift needs a tag. A gift tag can be custom to the recipient. For example, if the gift recipient likes dogs, make a dog gift tag even if it’s a Christmas gift.

Package Gift Tag


A panel block

Décor Bond 1 side fusible stabilizer (sized to match panel block)

Optional:  String or ribbon – 8”

If desired, use cookie cutters to cut your tag into a shape by tracing around the outside of the cookie cutter and cutting on traced line.

Tag 1

Choose a block from your panel and fuse Décor Bond to the back side of the fabric block. Add a string or ribbon, if desired to the top center of the block.

tag 2

You can write your message on the Décor Bond with a ballpoint pen or permanent marker.

Tag 3     Tag 4

Feel free to add embellishments to your gift tag such as crystals, buttons, beads, glitter or any other desired items. Attach to package and present your gift.

Panel Block Ornament


A panel block

Christmas Fabric to match the size of your panel block

Leftover pieces of batting or fiber fill

String or ribbon – 8”

Embellishments as desired

Feel free to use cookie cutters to cut your ornament into a shape by tracing around the outside of the cookie cutter and cutting on traced line.

Tag 1

With block and Christmas fabric RIGHT SIDES TOGETHER, and hanging ribbon folded in half placed in the center top so the raw edges of ribbon line up with raw edges of block, sew all around edge, leaving a 2” opening on the bottom side. Turn and shape then give it a press.

Block 1

Stuff lightly with batting leftovers or fiber fill. Top stitch 1/8” all around edges or whip stitch opening closed.

Block 2

Add embellishments if desired. Hang on your tree and enjoy!


Please share your version of gift tag and ornament made from your panel blocks, by sending us a picture.

Quilt Fabric Christmas Ornament Part 2-Folded Christmas Tree

Welcome to week 2 of FREE tutorials for folded quilt fabric Christmas ornaments.  Week 1 featured a Pentagon Folded Star Christmas Ornament.  If you missed last week, you can read that blog by clicking here.

Pentagon 6

Inspired by the Scandinavian country’s rich traditions for Christmas we have together this 4 part series of Christmas ornaments using folded fabric techniques which can be used as old fashioned traditions or modernized with your choice of fabric and embellishments.  For now we are on to our second ornament.

Quilt Fabric Christmas Ornaments Week 2


Week 2 features a folded Christmas tree ornament. This ornament is made with two 8” circles of fabric, and one 8” circle of double sided fusible stabilizer to give the tree extra body to hold it’s shape and accept our embellishments.

Using a plate or any other round object, draw an approximate 8” circle on your fabric and stabilizer, and cut.


Following the instructions for your double sided fusible stabilizer, fuse the stabilizer to the wrong side of each fabric circle.

Fold the circle in half and press well.


Following the illustrations below, you will fold and press your half circle into a tree as shown using 3 folds in a zig zag style.




Fold the hanging ribbon in half and place the raw edges between the top folds. Place a bow on the front and with matching thread and a zig zag stitch, you can hold the bow in place as well as the hanging ribbon. We shortened the length of our zig zag stitch to 2.0 mm.

Embellish your tree to your desire.


In our first example above, we used beads and sequins that will sparkle as they catch the light from our tree.

In the second example, we used pinking shears on the edges and added some fun buttons shaped like Christmas lights scattered on our tree. You can consider adding heat applied crystals for extra sparkle or small holiday themed buttons would also be a nice touch!

This ornament makes a great decoration or gift!

Click here for the FREE downloadable printable version of this tutorial.  We also have a kit available for the Silver Tree and the Green Tree, including all fabrics, ribbon and embellishments, as shown.

Please share a photo of your completed ornament!

Pentagon Folded Star Quilt Fabric Christmas Ornament

This summer, we had a family vacation to Scandinavia.  While there, we had an opportunity to talk to a lot of the local people and we realized that one common value amongst all the Scandinavian people, is their high regard for Christmas.  These countries are deep in tradition and history.  Feeling inspired by this, I am focusing my Christmas sewing on ornaments this year.  For the next 4 weeks, we will offer a fabric ornament tutorial to you for free.  Not just any fabric ornament, we are going to focus on folded fabric ornaments.

Based on your choice of fabrics and embellishments, these ornaments can have the appearance of traditional or they can be modern – set your imagination free!

If you like what you see, there is a link below for a FREE downloadable and printable version of these instructions, including the pentagon template, and a link for a kit for everything you  need to make this ornament, as shown, including embellishments.

Quilt Fabric Christmas Ornaments Week 1

Week 1 features a pentagon folded into a star ornament. This ornament is made with two 8” squares of fabric.

You will also need the pentagon template which is included in the downloadable version of this tutorial, by clicking here.

Trace the pentagon shape onto both pieces of fabric and cut.

Pentagon 1

With RIGHT SIDES TOGETHER, stitch all around pentagon with 1/4″ seam, leaving a 2” gap for turning on one side. Turn and using a non-pointy shaping tool, shape your pentagon, then press. Top stitch around entire perimeter with 1/8” seam allowance.

Pentagon 2

Using a heat erasable pen, such as a Frixion pen, you will draw lines as shown in red on the pentagon template and as shown below. You should have a star shape when you’re done drawing lines.

Pentagon 3

Back at your iron, fold your first point so the point is on the straight line right below it, press. Turn your pentagon to the next point and do the same for the remaining 4 points. It may be helpful to use clips to hold the points in place as you continue pressing. Do you see the star shape appearing?

Pentagon 4

Prepare the hanging ribbon by stitching the 2 cut edges with 1/4” seam with the right sides together. Turn so right side is facing out and place on back of your star at the top star point. Pin, clip or use a dab of glue stick to hold in place.

Top stitch around entire perimeter and star points to hold folded fabric in place. Make sure to catch the hanging ribbon.

Pentagon 5

This ornament is great by itself or welcomes the use of embellishments such as crystals, bead/sequins, buttons, jingle bells or whatever your imagination inspires.

We added a small jingle bell to each point and 2 snowman buttons in the center to ours.

Pentagon 6


Decorate a package, give as a gift or hang on your tree and enjoy!

Please send us a photo of your completed Pentagon Folded Star ornament.

Quilt Fabric Autumn Love Table Runner

During the beautiful month of October, we have celebrated several birthdays, including my own.  Each year, a good friend of mine, who has a birthday just 5 days from mine, and I, treat ourselves to some sort of celebratory indulgence.  This year, we took a trip to the spa for facials and massages.  Afterwards, we  relaxed a bit, drank some wine, caught up.  Then we feasted on a wonderful Italian dinner.  Of course, the table had to be set with a new table runner, which was the inspiration for this project featuring our Maple Lane collection along with several fabrics from the Brilliant Blender collection, all by Hoffman Fabrics.



Autumn Love Table Runner

14” x 49”

Main Focal Fabric – 10-1/2” x 10-1/2” – 1 EA

6 coordinating fabrics from light to dark – 2-1/2” x 10-1/2” – 4 of EA fabric

1 accent fabric – 2-1/2” x 2-1/2” – 12 EA

Back/Binding – 1 yard (see preparation instructions below)

Autumn Braid Love 1

All seams are 1/4”.

Sew 1 accent 2-1/2” square to 2 of each coordinating 2-1/2” x 10-1/2“ strip. Press towards the strip. You will have a total of 12 coordinating strips with an accent strip attached (2-1/2” x 12-1/2”) and 12 coordinating strips, 2-1/2” x 10-1/2”.

Lay your coordinating fabric strips out to your desired liking. Take your main focal fabric and sew the first strip, with no accent piece attached, to one side. Press toward the strip. Add one of the strip/accent squares to the adjacent side. Press toward the strip.

Autumn Braid Love 2      Autumn Braid Love 3

Take the remaining strip (without accent square) and sew it to the opposite side of the focal print lining up the remaining raw edge. Press towards strip. Attach the remaining strip with accent square to last raw edge of focal print. Press towards strip.

Autumn Braid Love 4      Autumn Braid Love 5

Continue the above steps until all strips have been attached. **You will always attach the strip with no accent square lined up with the previous accent square** – follow the pictures below. Your edges will be uneven as you go, but we will square them up when you are done sewing all strips.

Autumn Braid Love 6     Autumn Braid Love 7

Autumn Braid Love 8     Autumn Braid Love 9

Keep adding strips in the same order until all strips have been attached and your table runner looks like this:

Autumn Braid 10

Now it’s time to square up the edges. I used my 8-1/2” x 24” ruler to do this. Line up the 7-1/4” mark with the center of all the accent squares. Your table runner should measure approximately 14-1/2” W x 49” L.

Autumn Braid Love 10

Prepare the Back/Binding

Cut the 1 yard of back/binding fabric in half lengthwise so you have 2 pieces that measure approximately 21” x 36”. Sew these 2 pieces together so that you have one piece that measures approximately 21” x 72”. Center your table runner on the backing and quilt as desired.

Trim table runner and cut remaining backing fabric into 2-1/2” strips. Piece together lengthwise until you have approximately 150” of binding. Bind using your preferred technique, then enjoy your Autumn Love Table Runner!

Autumn Love

We have a kit available for your very own Autumn Love Table Runner by clicking here.  Kit includes pre-cut fabric for top, back and binding, and illustrated instructions. Fabrics may vary slightly from what is shown.

Please send us a photo of your completed Autumn Love Table Runner.

Any Witch Way Fabric Quilt

North and south, east and west—these whimsical witches head in all directions. Any Witch Way was first offered as a free tutorial in McCall’s Quiltmaker in Sep/Oct 2009.

I don’t know about you, but when I first received my Sep/Oct 2009 issue of McCalls Quiltmaker, I immediately saw a resemblance to my favorite Broadway hit, which I’ve seen and thoroughly enjoyed 9 times!  So I HAD to make this right away.


I veered from the pattern in several ways because that’s what I do to personalize everything I make, including my choice of fabric hair colors.  The obvious variance in this one is the border, which I’ll explain further down, but I also wanted to point out some of my embellishments that were not included in the pattern.


For the hair, I added a matching color of angelina fibers under the fabric hair applique to resemble witchy wispy hairs sticking out all over.  These angelina fiber witchy wispy sticking out hairs are shimmery which I think add to the witchiness of it!  I just placed the fibers where the hair was to be fused and then placed the fabric hair applique on top and fused into place, using a pressing sheet to avoid the fibers sticking to my iron.


For the eyes, I purchased false eyelashes and stitched them in place with clear monofilament thread using a zig zag stitch.  They pop right up off the faces and I love the look of them. They even create an eyelash shadow!


For the borders, I chose to use a piece of halloween themed fabric and show off some quilting stitches, rather than the pieced border as shown.  I stitched the words “Happy Halloween” on each side and a ghost in each corner.

witch4     witch5

To avoid stitching through the faces, I outlined stitched around the witch elements, such as around the face, hair and hat.  Then I stitched diagonal lines on the background, always stopping them at the witches.


For a final embellishment, I added a witch hat charm from a key chain that I had purchased at the favorite Broadway show I mentioned earlier. I attached it to the center point where all four witch hats come together.


Here is our favorite assortment of solids/blenders and metallics, perfect for your own Halloween witch projects!

Happy Halloween from LoveQuilting.com!
