First DWM of 2013--glad I have something to show for it, and thanks to Judy for continuing this well-loved feature. On my design surface are a multitude of projects. I've been sewing a LOT.
The pinwheels from scraps are laid out in tablerunner fashion. The blocks are about 9 inches and a 4 x 3 block layout was just too small to do anything with. Pondering if I want to make more blocks to play with or call this done and make it a real tablerunner.
After dragging my feet for a few days--I needed TWO more HSTs of the red and white to complete the center--and had enough of the cream to do so, thankfully. It will end up being about 40 inches long, I believe, so will be a table mat more than a runner. I'll use the red for the borders, end triangles, backing and binding. DD Elaine will get this and is excited about it.
More scrap fun with red and green. These will be mug mats for the Shoppe. I'll do a stitch and turn on these, and use up some batting scraps in the process.
More scrappy mug mats for the Shoppe. Heart block pattern is from About.com. The green calico I'm using for the backing has been in my stash for ages. It once covered the walls in my daughters' room. I've used it in so many quilts and will be happy to see the end of it finally!
Since this photo I quilted these four mug mats and bound them with leftover binding from my scrap bin. I'll hand stitch them down this afternoon while I work at the Shoppe and put them out for sale. I have a bunch more already cut in pink, and if popular, will make some in red. See more design walls on Judy's Patchwork Times.
