On my design surface today is a new project, and off the design wall is a finished one.
A friend has commissioned a quilt for an anniversary gift and I've tentatively suggested a Winding Ways quilt. A key to that suggestion is the fact that I own a Winding Ways die for my Accuquilt GO! cutter. We'll choose fabrics together but I pulled a couple from stash to try out the cutter and make some test blocks.
Off the design wall are the placemats I started a couple of weeks ago.
They are about 13x18--I like big placemats. The quilting with the three-step zig zag took a while, but a pleasing texture emerged. Four are finished, two more are needed to complete a set. How do you think I did coordinating with the table runner? See more design walls on Judy's Patchwork Times.
Speaking of tablerunners, my husband picked up my entries from the County Fair while I was at work last Monday. He and the person who was helping him traipsed up and down looking for the patchwork tablerunner, finally finding it just the same way I did, by looking in every display case until I found it in the furthest end of the hall! He brought me a check for my first prize as well--$4.00. My sister, however, having gotten first prize for her block entry for the Fair Theme Quilt Contest, received a check for $25.00! I guess I'm entering that contest next year too!
Our grandson came for a visit over the weekend while his mama used the computer here. He sat in his Papa's desk chair, ready to work. Too cute!
