Note: Did you know you could get little foil wrapped chocolate eyeballs? My quilting Bud, Dee, knew where to find them and presented some to me as we celebrated my new brighter outlook!
That's what friends are for!!!So...a little quilting...did take some time to complete a couple of smaller projects. Carpenter's Wheel - about 15" X 15"
A Fall tablerunner - Moda's Dominque fabrics...
Trying to keep up with Barbara's Civil War Quilt Blocks.
|Yep - I know the one corner patch on the bottom block runs differently - thought it added to the vintage look - maybe?|
Time to get them layered and quilted. Since I hand pieced the small red baskets, handquilting is probably in order...might give the quilting hand another go and see if it has gotten more comfortable. Even found a little piece of ivory and red toile for the backing.
You never know what lurks in the stash. The '30's piece - "Water Wheel" was paper pieced and with all the seams, it will probably go under the machine for completion.
And that is about it for now...a busy week coming up with my brother flying in from the West Coast for a visit...my folks are so happy he will be here - long overdue. Then our Liberty Ladies Quilt History Study Group is doing our annual Potluck...and somewhere in between all of this, need to pack for my Fall Retreat next weekend...really looking forward to that...great friends, great times and great sewing!!
Wishing each of you a good week and lots of accomplishments - no matter how "little."
