Today was our monthly Tied Together Quilt Bee. It seems like I always take too many UFO projects and end up not getting much done. It couldn't possibly be all the socializing/yakking/laughing/eating......could it?
Oh...you mean we are supposted to be sewing and quilting something?? Ok...just kidding. I did manage to get something done.
These quilt tops were already pieced......so I layered and quilted a couple new Batik Table Toppers using 5 inch charm squares.
I like using charm squares from my ETSY Shop and sewing them together for simple quilts. It gives my buyers and beginning quilters ideas on what they can do with just the simple 5 inch square and an easy simple border. Just cut the charm squares in half........sew end to end. The quilting is elongated straight stitch with variagated thread sewn diagnonally across...both directions.
Here's a shot of the backing too.
And the binding is cut, pressed and ready for the quilts.......just have to get it sewn on tonight.
Now to my question for you.
I'm thinking of offering these table toppers as Quilt Kits in my Etsy shop. I'm trying to appeal to the beginners so they can sit down with a SEW FUN QUILTS Kit and have some easy, simple sewing fun in a short time frame.
What do you think?
The kits could include; charm squares, borders, corner squares, and binding. Should the kit have the backing fabric too? They would measure approximatley 26" square when finished.
Please tell it like it is......I can take it. I wouldn't have asked you what you think unless I was willing to hear your opinion. AND..........by the way, Thanks a bunch.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
