Quilting Progress

When I started this blog I thought it would be mostly about quilting but work and life gets in the way of sewing it seems and I don't do as much as I like. But I am off of work for the summer and I have actually been doing some quilting lately so I thought I'd show a couple of projects. The blocks above are from a Block of the Month I am doing that I started way back in the winter. I kind of got behind in them but I am caught up now and month 5 just arrived so I will be getting going on that soon.

I have also been making some table runners that I put on my kitchen island and I just finished piecing this one that has a fall look to it. Maybe this will look at home on it come fall. It really was an easy pattern that came out of the Mostly Table Runners Three book by Calico Printworks. A fall project seems appropriate today since it is so cold today in NH. I think I'll just spend the day in my cozy sewing room.

  3. I seem to be most often drawn to fall colors - your table runner is just right.

  4. Love the quilts. I think the table runner will be great. The chicken will look wonderful on it.

  6. These are lovely! I particularly like the russet tones of the second one. The light pieces mean that this is still bright though so although I see what you mean about it having fall colours, I think it suits all seasons!

I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
