I have started on some winter projects.
I realized that it has been a while since I actually posted anything that I was quilting! This is a wallhanging that is almost done...but still has all the basting and markings. I hope to finish it this week and then add embellishments and binding. It is an original design. I was frustrated because the white marking pencil kept rubbing off the border. I know you are supposed to do all your markings before adding the batting and starting to quilt, but I ended up spending extra time trying to remark the borders. Do you have a good white marker that doesn't tend to wear off as you quilt? The same brand red and blue markers are ok ...it's just the white.
Yesterday, at Serendipity Quilt Shop, I saw such beautiful fabric but I controlled myself and only bought 12 fat quarters and a yard of flannel for myself. Next week I am going on a guild shop hop in Lancaster, PA so I wanted to save my stash cash. (I needed the flannel to use a batting for a couple of table runner UFOs that are calling to me wanting to be finished and the fat quarters were on a great sale and I really have plans for them.) I actually went to drop of my backup sewing machine for cleaning. My quilting buddy, Pat, went along.
Later today, I am going to a guild meeting and hope to get inspired by all the creative energy that will fill the room. I find that going to bees and guilds motivates me.
Don't forget to check out the scarecrow on my blog and see what is coming shortly.
