I write. I quilt. I cook. I take photographs. What else is there?

Weekend sewing

I made this cute little table runner for the Thread Head Quilt Along Challenge.  I used two blocks – actually the same block twice – from the challenge, along with the Alhambra blocks and border.  The center block, I received as part of a “Parts Swap” from my LibQuilters’ group.  Can’t wait to get this one finished!  It’s soooo cute.


I finished off this lovely little piece while doing my daily FMQ Challenge practice.  I’m not sure what I’ll do with it.  Maybe, put it with the other salmony/orange and make a placemat.  Dunno.


The challenge for me with this piece was making the “filler” even.  You can definitely see some parts are more white than others.  And some of the feathers are definitely non-conforming.  But still, it was fun!  I’m not sure what’s on the machine for tonight.  Gotta go see!
