A Quick Quilty Update

Hello Everyone! How’s your week been. Seems like another busy week for us. I was actually on my own on Friday and Saturday while my husband visited his father with his brother. I took advantage of easy meals to get a lot of crafting done.

I spent a good portion of Friday working on fully finishing some cross stitch pieces. None are complete yet, but they are close. I did a lot of hand sewing and circle making with this group. I also painted a frame for a finish, too.

I also finished the Chandelier Table Runner top by Lella Boutique. I think I did a pretty good job of keeping it organized while I sewed the pieces together. I spent over an hour laying it out so I sewed them together one row at a time so I didn’t get the pieces mixed up or turned backwards. These are mostly Bonnie and Camille and Minick and Simpson fabrics from Moda. Later today, I’ll go through my fabrics to see what I have for the backing and binding.

I also finished the second quilt block to match the Stitchy Stars Cross Stitch piece. It’s the one on the right and is the Christmas Star from Lori Holt’s “Vintage Christmas” book. I have the next two blocks cut out and ready to sew. This week I’ll pull the fabric for the next set of blocks. I am really enjoying making these small blocks. I like working with more challenging blocks and these are fitting the bill.

That’s it for now. I have a friend that will be visiting next weekend, so it may be two weeks until my next quilting update. I hope you have a great week and thanks for stopping by.

    The table runner reminds me of beads hanging down like you used to see in the 60s/70s as curtains. Sooo looking forward to seeing you guys.


  2. I just got Lora Holts Vintage Christmas book and am so inspired. Your blocks are gorgeous.
