The little purple star quilt is bound now. I don't have a name for this yet. Any ideas?
This photo on the left gives you a better view of the quilting.
I got this one bound, too. I stitched tiny buttons into the cornerstones.
Haven't come up with a name for this, either. I had considered Christmas in Kansas, since it is all KT fabrics in Christmas colors. Maybe that will stick--maybe not.
This Snowy Gathering mat, designed by Lisa Bongean, is all blanket stitched now and the edge is bound.
Is this a great match, or what? This is a mayonnaise jar turned candle holder that a very talented friend painted for me years ago. It looks like I tried to make the mat to match, but it never occurred to me. It just happened. : )
The tumbler topper got stitched together last week. Yesterday I did some simple meander quilting on it and got the binding sewn on one side and pinned. It is waiting for some slow stitching in the evenings to complete the binding.
Then I will finally have a topper for my dining room hutch when there isn't a holiday topper to fill the space.
Last of all, Snowball got quilted and the binding is pinned down ready for hand stitching.
Now I am determined to get back to work on the T-shirt quilt AND I am determined NOT to join any of the bazillion fun SALs that are popping up like daisies all over blogland. My goodness, it is tough to be strong, with temptation at every turn! But I have made it all the way through January and the first week of February without succumbing. So far, so good!
Until next time,
