Second, I did get the borders on my Sunday Charmer...
... now to find a back and get it off the the Terry for quilting.
Third, is this almost moldy golden oldie... a Stack N Whack done with the fabric line "The Quiltmaker's Gift"...
...I got 2 more rows sewn on. That makes 9 total rows assembled and 4 more to go. Each row takes about 30 minutes to pin, sew, adjust, re-pin, re-sew, over and over and over. But in the end the points are meeting quite nicely. This is one of the 3 red stars that will appear in the quilt...
...if you look closely you will see that the fabric in the center is bear butts. This is a re-occurring theme in SNW quilts I have made that have animals in them. The very first SNW quilt I made was in a class, long long ago in a galaxy far far away. The fabric I selected was a farmyard scene...pigs, cows, donkeys and chickens. I enthusiastically whacked away at my fabric and began laying out my blocks... Oh my goodness! Some how all I got were butts and udders!! All other parts of the animals had somehow disappeared into the seam allowances. I had meant for it to be a baby quilt but I couldn't subject some innocent child to a quilt that turned out a bit obscene. Insert hanging head in shame!
This theme still continues to follow me...the butts of bears... and in the photo below I somehow only have the rear end of the horse...will it ever stop!!!
I do like that block with the top hats!
So I have lots of things I should be working on... tablerunners for the wedding, altering the groom's vest, finishing the shawl I want to wear at the wedding... but somehow I don't think that's going to happen right away. I feel the need to do something fun...perhaps start a new project... a quilt, a shawl, a cross stitch sampler... I have one of each of these I'm chomping at the bit to get too... and like that BB I will bounce again to another venture! No wonder my father always shook his head when he talked to me - LOL!
