September NewFO Challenge

Even though it seems to me like I didn't do much of anything this month, I was wrong!  I haven't got a bunch of projects to show, but I do have a few, and that makes me pretty happy.

Without further ado, I present to you....

I made these using a technique from a video posted by the Missouri Quilt Company called "Amazing Jelly Roll Quilt by 3 Dudes!"  I used 3" strips that my friend Mary Ann from Auntie's Ceramics gave to me.
I wanted big blocks, so I started with strips sets of 5 strips, measured the set across, then cut into squares.  Then you take those squares & layer them together with one set going vertically & the other horizontally & sew all around.

After that, cut them from corner to corner in both directions.

 When you open them, this is what you get!
You can see the video here.

Next are some door knob covers:

I used this pattern from Crafty Erin.

And, last, but not least,
a quick table runner:

Still needs some pressing & I want to tack down the triangles, then it will be finished.

I'm linking up with the September NewFO linky party
Check it out!



  1. I really like your 3 Dudes quilt blocks using 5 strips! Those doorknob covers are a great idea. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I like the 3 Dudes quilt too! I'll have to try that myself.

  3. Oh look at you go. Great ideas here. Thanks for linking up!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment!
