It has been a crazy busy week around here… I finished the machine quilting on my Get Well Soon quilt and even did machine binding back to front with a straight stitch and it turned out awesome… unfortunately no final pics to show.. it is waiting for the hospital trip but I will try to get a photo this week to share next week with y’all! 🙂
Each morning when I make time to enjoy a cup of coffee and hand quilt I have found that the results are exceptional!
I managed to get the crosshatch for the heart pounced onto the heart… I will go over it with my chalk marking pen once I start doing the cross hatch… So this progress I am linking to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching gang HERE <<< Come on over there and see what everyone is up to… it is ALWAYS eventful on Sunday’s link up! This week Kathy also shows some of her fave tools for hand quilting!! 🤩
I bought a layer cake of gorgeous fabric and some backing fabric I may use for the background of the front too once I see it in person… it is a tone on tone and I ended up with a great deal on the Moda layer cake and backing for the bed runner I have planned from the same seller on Ebay!!!!
Above is my basic layout and block count for this bed runner… but I hope it turns out in mid to dark tones in the cross colors and lighter in the background to make the cross colors really pop! You can see in my graph papered layout that the top will measure 22.5 x 85.5″ but it will shrink with washing and be 20″ x 82″ or so once ready to gift… I am excited about this fun project….
My honey continues to be busy making and selling these wood indoor Barn quilts….
Those links will open up directly to ebay on a new screen so you won’t lose your place on my blog either! lol
By special request of a very good bloggy friend … My honey made and mailed this one this week… it is called Card Trick and is a challenge but he was up for it!!!
If you have a special request for a quilt block up to 11 1/2″ square indoor decor type quilt blocks please feel free to email me or mention your interest in your comment and we can chat there off the post 🙂 His work is professional and amazing *I am NOT partial about this either* He is a long time woodworker and it shows in his products and he loves a great challenge… And <<<< He got a couple new to us saws this week too… they look GREAT and work GREAT so the older tools he had for making these quilt blocks and future of outdoor quilt blocks will be much easier and safer for him 😊
Thanks for visiting my blog today … hope you have enjoyed your visit and my wide range of sharing with you all! Please comment … I do try to reply to each one personally too!
