Sunday Sewing

Today I got lots of sewing done! I felt so productive after feeling like I haven't done anything all month. I finished the backing for this tablerunner and quilted it up. I put the binding on and started hand sewing the binding down while I was watching Amazing Race tonight.
I put on the final round of the Wanna Be a Cowboy quilt. I took my mom's advice and kept the browns together like a traditional log cabin. Then I put the strip on as the inner border on the top and bottom and then the center fabric is also the top and bottom border.

This is the bottom of the quilt. It ended up about 59"x79" which I think is a good size for a twin bed for my amazing niece. She's getting ready to go to a twin bed, so by the time her birthday rolls around in June I'll have this ready for her. I'm hoping to get a pillowcase made to go with it.

Here's a diagonal vision to show the top and bottom are the only sides with borders. I really love how quick and easy the pattern was, so I'm going to make a baby quilt out of the same fabrics.
I got the backing pieced and hopefully I can load it on the frame tomorrow night. I love how it turned out!
While I did spend a majority of the day quilting, I also spent several hours studying and doing my discussion posting for my graduate class. Usually I tend to leave the studying till the end of the day, but today I did it while Paul was napping, so I got lots done and rewarded myself with sewing after I was done.
Several have asked about the EZ Bob and while I was quilting today I took a few pictures to show how to use it, so I hope to do a post showing how it works tomorrow. Anyone with a Bernina or a frame machine with a metal bobbin case would love the EZ Bob.
