I've got to get back in the swing of things with the Colorful Scrappy monthly challenge. I need to sew a couple of my string blocks to catch up on several months of color. Summer vacation days are dwindling away and I want to get a few finishes within the next 2 weeks.
I totally missed out on making blocks in pink, purple and yellow, but if I put it on the very BIG
To Do List, I think I can get something done before the end of August.
My mom pieced this pretty table topper and I did the quilting on it last week. I did meandering in the background and over the center motif I did a combination of diagonal lines and curves from corner to corner. It got the binding on pretty quickly because I used a machine button hole stitch to stitch it down.
I've been at school running the smaller tumbler cutter through the accucut machine. I decided my throw for the white wicker sofa must be increased by several rows. I want it to be nice and cozy and cover my toes when I use it. I cut quite an assortment of red and white fabrics and a Bliss charm pack was used already. Now I'll be adding a Strawberry Fields charm pack and I was lucky to find an early released pack of Ruby Charms, so they will be mixed in among those that are in my charm basket.
