Is a small(er) one. It’s a table runner (18”x 68”) made from squares that never found their home in a quilt. You see, they were made by my BFF of 38+ years and quilting buddy, Alice. She passed away somewhat unexpectedly a little over a month ago. Her 3 adult children (also friends of mine) allowed me the privilege of organizing her quilt stash and seeing that it went to good homes. She was a very prolific and proficient piecer and quilter. In the coming weeks you will see some of her quilts being quilted for her grands. But right now I have 5 squares that her daughter, Carol, found amongst her things and wants put into a table runner. Today it found its way to my Sweet Sixteen, ready for the stitching…….
This project stared at me from the sewing surface! What to quilt!!??!! How to quilt it??!! Feathers were swirling in my head……but that’s what I always do! And on stars??? No! Really? Well, I started (not feathers) and then grabbed the ripper….ugh! Okey, I gave in and …. and….. well, take a peek at the progress made this afternoon……..
The above block will get a little more stitching in the center block…..maybe! Such fun…once I got “rollin’”! Updates to follow……….
