BUT rainy weather does make us stay inside and quilt - per chance?? And I've been busy. I have two finishes - one is an UFO!! Ticker tape parade!!
The prototype Christmas Log Cabin Table Runner! 20 x 44 which is a great size for our 66 x 38 table! When I asked DH why that size, he mumbled something about having a place to sit and eat even when I was in the midst of a project! Wise man!
Lovely little log cabin quilt ... or is it??
Take a closer look and notice it's a ruse! Make all green log cabin with a red center, cut a neutral block the same size; make RSTs!! I quilted it "around" the logs and I think that makes it even more like a real log cabin.
My second project is a quilt I found on the web "Kelsey's Quilt". Very easy and you could use all kinds of fabrics. A two color quilt? A boy's superhero quilt? All pastels? The list is endless. What happens when you use dark sashing?? Lots of variations to explore. 40 x 44 and all from stash!!
An artistic shot like my DD is so good with!! But as a quilter I want to see it full out and straight please!! But, since it's bigger than my table and since it's pouring outside - you'll have to settle for almost full out!! Variegated thread for the machine quilting.
I have a dozen pairs of fabrics (like the fish on green background) mixed in so you can play I spy with it too!
Doesn't finishing projects feel good! It's amazing that we have UFOs at all!!! (And boy, do I!)
I made lasagna yesterday and it smelled so good. It tasted good too - but today I had to make brownies to take along to retreat. Nothing smells better than brownies baking! I don't bake cookies very often, you can see why!
Isn't that saddest batch of cookies you've ever seen? Luckily it tasted good - 5 different kinds of chips!! Had to take it to guild Fun Day. I kept eating the "worst" ones and could see that would lead to madness!
How can you make a "typo" when you're writing by hand??? Can you find it?
This is the top of the pin cushions for Finishing School. Still have to finish those little gems. Even though I promise myself I am NOT going to be sewing at the last minute again!!!
Woke up to a surprise Sunday morning! Snow on the coast! What?? We left NE to get out of this weather - NE is 77 degrees this week!!! But it soon melted away and started raining again. :(
