Current projects

It has been a week of finishing up works in progress.

I had started some fabric baskets before my art show, and finished them up today. The pattern is Gathered Round Basket, from A Spoonful of Sugar Designs.

Linen interiors. Hand quilted with #8 perle cotton.



I was asked to make some more stamped table runners, so have been working on several of those.






I took all my scraps from "It All Comes From the Sun" and made random 4 1/2 inch squares for an as yet undetermined scrap quilt project.


 Lastly, I found a small group of triangles from a fabric exchange, and put them together for a table mat.



Yesterday Ellen helped me to sandwich and baste the Seminole quilt from Carol Piercy's class at our quilt meeting in May (no pictures of that yet - Iwill wait until I get it machine quilted).
