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!

Me,too; me, too! And it didn't take you long with machine applique, I bet. Very nice job.

When you wrote, "did it at the bus stop," I knew you were one of those very cool people who has figured out how to squeeze in the most in her idle moments. I'm usually pulling out the phone to gaze at other projects on my Reader. I obviously need to take a page from your book!

Fun to see all your projects (the Dresden, esp.)--inspiration for me!
