What's this? Some of you may recall, once upon a time, this blog's focus was mainly on quilting. In the last year there has been precious little quilting to share. This week of floor installation provided the perfect opportunity to spend some time reacquainting myself with my sewing machine.
I packed up my supplies and headed out to the local quilt shop for their new, open sew sessions. You may remember these blocks, pieced for me by a quilting pal, The Little Runner. On my first outing, I was able to piece the blocks into a top. The second trip yielded the four borders (two pieced and 2 plain) for one finished quilt top.
Not only was I thrilled to have a top ready to quilt, but I was nearly giddy as I went out in the yard to find a spot to photograph it. I always loved putting a quilt up on the fence or clothesline and that thrill has not diminished one bit with a new backdrop of snow and bare branches.
Yeah for quilting and yeah for fun, new places to take pictures of the quilts!
When you get an itch, scratch it!
