That's what I felt like yesterday. Even with yesterdays drama I still managed to complete some quilting projects. Or get them to the quilting stage.
First, I got my disappearing 9patch table runner together. I've decided to not go with a border. I'm really pleased with how this has turned out.
Next, I finally got my doll quilt quilted. This wasn't meant to be a doll quilt. In fact, I'm not ever sure if it qualifies for a doll quilt, I'm just calling it that. I bought a scrap bag of fabric and had originally planned on putting the strips into a baby quilt backing. Instead, I cut the strips in half(there is another piece like this) and added the two little borders. Than I quilted it. I did it on my domestic machine and did a loopy meander. Dare I say that this little quiltie took me roughly 3 hours to quilt? Yes THREE hours!
The quilting is no where near perfect; some of my loops look very square lol. But for a first time, I think I did good. I maybe should have used white thread instead of gray on the back though lol.
Next up? The last of the sock monkeys. There's been another baby born!
4 love it too:
you have alot of fun things going on...love the runner...
so cute! love itty bitty quilts!
i heart the little quilts too. if you have sock monkey scraps (no matter how small and hard to stitch) i will buy a couple dollars worth to scrapbook and craft with. (if you're not doing that already ;) have the ladies who lunch tried abby's tracecakes? you would ♥ it
I love the dolly quilt! The colors are so pretty. And the runner is fabulous!
