Sunday Projects #23

There was some sewing around here this weekend . . .

I finished the binding on my curvy kaffe quilt . . .

That quilt will be heading off to it's new home in about two weeks.

Time to throw it on my bed so I can infuse it with love before it goes!

I am going to see my Mom next weekend and

I want to bring her something handmade.

We always give each other handmade gifts, and I just love that!

She is retired and living in a condo, so small things are good.

I dressed up these tea towels for her.

They were so fun to put together.

I pieced a strip for the center and then added two borders,

(You can see I am loving my black and white JP fabric!)

Then I ironed the seam allowance and machine stitched it to the towel.

I know she will love them!

I love them!

I will be making some more of these for sure.

on another note . . . .

My house was so chilly this morning that I had to build a fire.

Imagine my surprise when I ventured outside a few hours

later and it was 68*! hahaha.

Mother Nature, time to stop fooling with us,

let's just call it even and let spring come!

Hope you all had a great holiday weekend!


  1. What a great idea for dressing up towels. Love the binding too.

  2. Love the fabrics in your quilt, and also in your towels. The binding makes it all pop! Here in NC it was 88 degrees yesterday, and supposed to be that warm again today--the house was a little cooler in the morning than it was outside, but not cool enough to turn the heat on, that's for sure.

  3. I love the towels. You have inspired me to make some for my niece's upcoming shower. She would love them. Thanks for sharing and inspiring. Stay warm. :)

  4. The binding looks great! I love the towels! Enjoy your time with your mom.
