Holiday Township

DSCN1318

I enjoy making items that can be used in more than one way. This little piece was made from a quilted pillow pattern called Township from Moda. I knew a couch pillow at my house would mean Sami would be in the dog house for sure. She would immediately claim it as her own and the fights would begin.

I loved the pattern and decided it would be more useful at our house as a small table runner. I also added a hanging sleeve to the back so it could be used as a wall hanging. One of these days it may become a pillow.

I used a charm pack called Basically Holiday from Benartex.  It is hand quilted around the houses and blocks and measures 18″x29″.

Moda Bake Shop is a wonderful place to find free patterns.

I am a retired grandmother living in hot and sunny Florida. I spend most of my days doing what I love: sewing and quilting. I have a spoiled rotten Boston Terrier named Sami who keeps me busy mostly by cleaning up after her and refilling holes in the yard that she insists on digging and burying her toys. Of course then she digs them up and brings them into the house resulting in...you guessed it...more cleaning. I will be posting pictures of Sami, quilts, flowers, and other things as they come along. Glad to have you join me.

  1. Hi Peggy,
    What a cute, happy little table topper. I’m not big on pillows and I don’t even have Sami to get in trouble with them. That is the kind of wall hanging that I would put in my sewing room, as it just makes me smile. Simple, pretty fabrics – you can imagine about the different people living in different houses. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. I get your meaning…My dear Scamp-kitten tried to claim my knitting last night when I left it open to measure a belt. Right after I snapped a photo, I had to zip up the knitting and work to keep her out of it. I’m tempted to knit Briannag her own duck toy, but I’m pretty sure the dogs will shred in an hour what I took much longer to knit….alas, Briannag has no knit toys…and the quilting is done in my apartment, where the cats and dogs happen not to be.
