Or: Just Tumbling Along
Making progress on the table runner. The top is sewn together, layered, basted . . .
though I still need to close up all those pins. I'm thinking just some simple straight line quilting on this one.
So lo-o-o-ong! Off into the shadows we go.
Putting all those squares together was a good reason to pull out my Leaders and Enders project. I have a bad habit of working on it for a while and then stuffing it in the closet and forgetting about it. Oops! But, hey, working on it while I put together all those circle blocks meant I made some good progress.
Once I started putting some of the tumblers up on the design board, I could see the quilt top was going to be way too dark and boring. I needed to cut more tumblers out anyway, so I'm hoping adding some brighteners will give it a little spark.
Meanwhile, I've got another GO! project in the wings. This is one I just need to get up my get up and go to start! I think this is the first time in all my years of quilting that I bought fat quarters for an entire line. (Greetings, Black Friday sale!) Mon Ami -- isn't it fun?
And now, it's back to prepping -- classes start tomorrow. The (break) party's over.
