I made this for another “Quilting Buddie”. It is the first big project I have ever hand embroidered. I really enjoyed it. The wall hanging is about 23 inches square.
I posted recently about a WIP. It is now finished. It took me a day to really think about where I wanted to go. My original vision just wasn’t panning out. Usually I don’t have this problem. A BIG Thank you to those of you who posted helpful ideas. I went kind of quilting crazy on it though. It is for a swap partner who lives in Oklahoma. I hope she loves it.
This morning I finished sewing three blocks together from a swap. I made extra for myself with the intention of making a quilt. I decided this morning that I have too many UFO’s to add another one to the pile. I sewed the blocks together and made a table runner out of them. I used a Juki TL-98Q to quilt the table runner. It was so awesome. So much easier to quilt with than my regular machine. I borrowed Crazy Mom’s idea of circular quilting for this table runner. It looks so neat on quilts. This was a lot of fun. I made and finished this project in a few hours. Yeah me. I was in major need of some sewing time. I was going through with drawls. LOL. If you sew you understand.
Here is the fabric I used for the back. I have about 3 yards of this fabric. It must have been on sale.
I made this log cabin candle mat this morning for one of my aunts who just had surgery. It measures 9 x 9 inches. And the best part is that it is made from using scraps. I didn’t have to buy anything. Yeah. Now I want to make some for myself.
I received this fabric postcard the other day from a swap partner named Dorothy. Isn’t it adorable. I love it.
Here are a few pictures of Andrew that I took yesterday. He is getting so big and fast. I put this bouncer together yesterday. We got it as a baby shower gift from some o the ladies at church. He seemed to like it.
