I enjoyed my long Thanksgiving weekend by finishing up some projects!
Finally some quilting going on in the quilt shop this week though it was out of necessity; I ran out of basting pins. I had 2 choices; open more or quilt the projects already basted. I decided to buckle down & quilt instead of take the easy way out.
I made this top over the summer. Very quick & easy fat quarter pattern, Happy Daze. I used fabrics from Buttercup Lane. I finally basted it a month ago when I basted this quilt. The scrap batting was the perfect size, so I put it to immediate use….just not immediate quilting. (and no, that other quilt isn’t quilted yet.)
In my quest to use up what’s laying around, I made these 2 table runners from leftover Mary Engelbreit turnover pieces. The backing & batting are also cast-offs from other projects, so these were very good for scrap management.
I finished piecing my commissioned tumbler quilt top. It will become a new backing to an old quilt. The pic shows it just resting on top of the scalloped edge top. Last night I started removing the old binding, which will just be replaced with the red marble used in the tumblers.
While piecing the tumblers & the 2012 BOM top (big reveal very soon), I worked in pinwheel piecing. I have over 100 done. more to go, all scraps, even the white!
So, that’s my update for the week (actually 2, I didn’t update you last week). What did you work on? I’m linking up with Sarah; pop over there & see what folks have been up to & give them a little Whoop Whoop of encouragement!
