Autumn Inspiration at Patches


Autumn Inspiration at Patches

Tips, Trips, Classes & Rewards

    
Autumn is in full swing! My husband John especially enjoys hiking this time of year in our gorgeous Bitterroot Mountains. The colors and reflections are ever-changing and spectacular.

    
For me, I love a nice quiet picnic next to the stream with my family and all the colors of fall around me. It is so inspiring...time for an autumn project!


Table runners make wonderful fall projects. My family is spending more time indoors and it is usually around the table filled with goodies from the garden or oven or both. The Table Top Harvest pattern is a fun, fast project sure to use up some of those scraps and show off a little bit of applique'.

Stop in soon and see all of our pattern ideas for making your autumn table the best yet. This week only, mention our newsletter to receive 20% OFF table runner and/or placemat patterns.

I am adding some of my favorite quilting tips to the newsletter and I hope you enjoy them. Please share yours with me!

Have you ever missed a point and redid it, only to make it worse? You try again and still it is not right. Well, this is what I do and it works. First, I rip the seam out just enough to allow me to work with the offending point. I spritz the fabric with water to get the fibers to relax and return to their natural position. Then, I align my points and add a tiny drop of basting glue in the seam allowance, making sure that my alignment stays correct. Heat-set the point (heat dries the glue faster) to make sure the fabrics stay put. I now can sew the rest of my seam allowance, easing in fullness if I need to. Open it up and poof...it is right on! :)
