Coastal Mist Blog Hop

Tammy Silvers, from Tamarinis,  invited me to participate in the Island Batik Coastal Mist Blog Hop.

Coastal Mist Blog Hop

This is my first blog hop and I have had a great time! Thank you, Tammy!

The fabrics that I chose to use from this sea breezy collection are beautiful and vibrant!  My photos do not do them justice!

I’ve showcased the fabrics with a table runner.

I used Aurifil 50 wt. for the piecing.  Aurifil 50 wt. and WonderFil 80 wt. Deco-Bob were used for the machine quilting.

I also made a cute little fabric basket from the scraps.

Melanie’s Table Topper

Once upon a time, my daughter-in-law thought that she would like to learn to sew. 

She wanted to make a fall themed table topper for her home, so she purchased these fabrics:

Table Topper Fabrics

Melanie has many talents, but she decided that sewing wasn’t going to be one of them.  So she gave me the fabrics and moved on to other pursuits.

I decided to make that table topper and she will be getting it for Christmas (even if she reads this post…which is a very high possibility).

Merry Christmas Mel!
