This past week has been quite successful in terms of projects. I'm very pleased thus far.
First up is finishing the stitching on what will be a Christmas gift for our pet sitter next Christmas. It was supposed to be done for last Christmas, but a nasty cold/weak flu got in my way. As long as I don't loose track of it between now and October/November, I'm already ahead of the game.
Then I worked up a design for a quilted table runner that features an applique block that I worked on this summer (before I got sick) in a fun class. The instructor is a local quilt designer and she taught us how to turn the applique pieces using a new product called "Templar." It works like a charm and everyone in the class has a wonderful time.
I also worked up the blocks featuring the rabbits on either side of the runner. I'll talk more about them and the designer of the rabbit applique sometime in the next couple weeks.
I also (briefly) considered making a wall quilt instead of a runner. Here's the design I was contemplating. I'll probably use the layout later on for a different project.
Finally I finished the applique block for the center of the runner. I'm
giving serious thought to removing the center of the flower,
re-centering it on the petals, and sewing it in place again. I didn't
notice how far off center it was until I saw the picture.
