WIP Wednesday

This week I have been really really busy, but don't seem to have much to show for it. How could that be???  I got together with friends twice this week to sew...this is so much fun!  One of the days we made braided runners: They were interesting....the first one twisted somehow...and I had to re square it up when finished....the second one I used the walking foot. Since these were sewed and quilted all at the same time; it worked out much better. Here they are:


They are now bound in black and maroon, respectively.

The second evening; we worked on placemats....I didn't do much on those because I arrived with only my top pieces....dah!!! forgot batting and backing....lol.  So I had tea and talked too much; had a blast watching the rest of the ladies work.  



I have my Dresden ready for Thursday's post...working on the Valentine's piece...and have started the 'All About Me' piece.  So many pieces...so little time!!!  lol

The 'Bluenose' is almost pieced; to be hand quilted. I finished the block quilt that is an order...here it is:

This quilt measures 92x96 inches.

I am linking up to Lee  and  Monika; make sure you take a peek.

  4. I love sewing with friends, but sadly it doesn't happen very often. Somehow it seems like you get more done even though you often don't because you talk more.

  6. Great table runners, you managed to piece very well with this method (can you tell that I tried it and didn't succeed?).

    1. Hi Regina....thanks for your great comment. I can't see anything on your blog post. For some reason I am getting a very tiny page when I go to your post. Not sure why

  7. I really like your first table runner! It must be even more striking with the black binding!

  10. Sewing with friends is the best! I love your quilting on the big quilt and the tablerunners cute! I think that the black border and maroon border are the best choices! What are you doing with them?
