WIP Wendesday

 I had a very productive week. I was able to take 2 days off of work and spend some time in my studio. I got the binding completed on my bowtie runner (which is now on my dresser), the Charming Stars runner, a scrap mini quilt made with leftover pieces from a twister wall hanging I made last fall, got the hangers and binding sewn on my 5 snowman embroidery wall hangings (I just need to hand sew them - which I have been working in the mornings while we wait at the bus stop).

 Then I started 2 new projects - one completed!! I used scraps from 12 Days of Christmas and Cotton Way's Abundantly Blessed and made this tablerunner. This one a fun quilt as you go - no binding pattern. Went very quickly. The petals are raw edged sewn on the charms, so when you wash it they get all crinkly and ragged. Love it!
 Then I used Verna scraps and made this 12 inch dresden plate mini quilt. I just have to bind it. I did start the binding on my Verna Charming Stars quilt - if I keep doing a little each night it might be done next week!

WIP Wendesday

Soccer practice was canceled tonight, so I had time to sew the binding on my Verna Pinwheel Sampler quilt. Now to just do the handsewing on the binding. It might be spring before it gets done with how much I hate to do binding. I love how it turned out. I tried loop quilting on it again - it turned out better than my first attempt - Flowers of Hope.

 These are my Central Park bow tie sample blocks. I was looking for a pattern to use up my scraps - once I opened my Simplicity book I knew this was the one to try.

These embroidery snowmen are teachers gifts. I ordered quilt hangers for them, so once they arrive I will make finish them off.
These are just a sampling of my projects. See last post for full list.
