What I'm Working On Wednesday

There's a lot going on in my sewing world and I'm getting distracted easily.  But here are a few things needle and thread are changing:

The quilting is complete on the first of the witches quilts.  Lots of stitch in the ditch around all the faces, lips, hats, bands, background, and the borders, whew!  I timed myself on the white background sections and each only took 6-10 minutes to quilt--in a very herky-jerky zig-zaggy filler style.  Happy about that!  Only the binding left to do and I already have the strips cut.  I really want this one to be finished today.

2.5" scrap strips are being turned into small tablerunners for sale at the senior craft shoppe.  This will be bordered with some cream and will end up probably 12 x 26".  I hope purple and pink are popular since another, smaller runner will join this one.

Next, piecing of batting scraps for a larger tablerunner.  The backing is cut and binding choice already figured out.  Simple quilting will be key to getting this out on the sales floor.

More Picnic blocks have been completed while piecing the strips.  Soon the leader-ender box will be empty and I'll need to lay them all out to see what color I need more of.  I'm guessing green, my favorite color :).  What are you working on?
