For most of this year I have only dabbled with quilting projects here and there. So many other things had to take precedence. My quilting suffered and so did I. This week I decided to take the bull by the horns and work on completing a few things that have been languishing in my basket. So I headed down to the still unpacked quilting supplies and dug around until I found a fabric I knew I had. (Why is it no matter what I'm looking for is in the last box I open?)
Eureka! Just enough of what I was looking for on hand to make a ruffle.
Later today I will attach it to this along with some fabric on the back. Voila! A new pillow sham for our bed.
A companion for this one that I finished last year. I think it's going to look great on our bed.
Also down in the bottom of the basket were these little blocks. Finally I trimmed them down and assembled them into a top.
Now to find a batting scrap and make a sandwich. The whole piece is only about 13". I bet I can get it hand quilted in just one evening. When it's all done, I'll wonder why I waited so long.
