What am I working on Wednesday? Week 48 - 11.28.12
This has been a very busy week, but even with all I have had to get done, I've accomplished quite a bit of sewing and quilting. I did a lot of procrastinating, since have 4 long papers due this weekend. Last week I worked on two pieces for a Christmas swap. I got them pieced on Turkey day and on Monday night, so they were both ready to be quilted. I loaded this one on Mon. night and quilted it on Tues. night. I quilted the other one as well. I have them both trimmed and ready for binding. I will have them done before I have this baby... unless he decides he's ready tonight.
Monday night I quilted up this flower and the background fabric for the tablerunner. I did up and down lines which I haven't done in quite a while, but it turned out well. I'm excited to finish this one. I have it all cut apart and the binding on it, but have to finish the binding first before I can go further. It's a store sample. I quilted it with King Tut and Bottomline both in maroon.
The backing fabric for the tablerunner is black and I quilted it with King Tut and Bottomline both in black.
Tuesday a lady dropped these off to be quilted and I stopped at the store and picked up a top thread to match, only to realized when I got home I didn't have the color bottomline I thought I had, so they were put off until Wed. night. I quilted the first one with Sage green King Tut and a white bottomline with stippling.
Here's a close up of the stippling.
I also did this one in a Sage green King Tut and Bottomline. It is done all in loops.
I love how the loops turned out and the quilting went very quickly and smoothly. I had no errors on this one.
I also pulled a couple fat quarters and made a burp cloth for the baby. I finished this one and I have another one cut out. I'm waiting for another scrap of batting to use to make the other one.
