Another busy quilting day


It was off to the races again this morning.
I fired up the machine and finished off quilting a second Halloween table runner. My sister pieced both tops but had never finished them so my mother and I convinced her that it was a good idea to donate them to us! 😉 Now just have to get out the rest of the Halloween decorations…

Mine is the smaller runner.  Mom took the larger one.

I also worked on some scrappy circle blocks that I started in July when I took a class with Victoria Findlay Wolf. It was great fun and I am excited to get back to this project. I was thinking about putting a black and gray polka-dotted sashing between the blocks. Any thoughts? ?

Finally, my mother made 4 Christmas table runners to give as gifts so we started prepping some backings for them. I have my quilting frame half disasembled right now to give myself more space in my tiny sewing room but I have a couple of tops I want to get finished as well so that might be the next project. Stay tuned!
