Fall Star Mania
On Sunday Mike wanted to watch football all day -- literally ALL DAY -- so we spent a good amount of time downstairs and I quilted and quilted. I got 5 or so table runners quilted! A few bound - and lots to share this week.
I'm on a fall kick with fabrics - and a star kick with patterns. This is a Country Threads pattern called Glory Star which is a pattern for a baby quilt. I didn't add as many orders to this one to make it a table topper. My favorite part is the scrappy binding.
I have to say working with woven type fabrics is harder than I remembered. They sure stretch and pull a lot! But I think this turned out cute - so cute I made another one and added a little border on it. Just need to bind it.
Every weekend I say - this is my last weekend of fall runners - yet ideas just keep coming. I have a cute pinwheel one on my quilting machine right now. Hope to get that one done tonight! I'll be using the scrappy binding again.
Two of my favorite things - stars and fall - couldn't be more fun to sew!
