We went to church this morning then went over to my son's and watched the Cowboy game. Boo hoo...the Cowboys lost. We came home afterwards and I took a nap. When I got up, I found that my husband had fixed dinner; his favorite, spaghetti. He hasn't been fixing this very long and he always fixes enough for a few weeks! OMG, we'll be eating spaghetti for the next week. Oh well, I'm not going to complain...too much. He tries really hard and I didn't have to cook. I was able to go up and sew. I got my pineapple strips together and it looks really good. I have decided to put a small(I call it a racing stripe) inner border, probably blue and 1 1/2" then a piano key border. Maybe...I'm going to definitely put the small border then decide or look in my stash and see if I have anything I like for a border before I go to the trouble of the piano key border. What do you think? Small inner border with a plain outer border? No border? Small inner border with a piano key border? I would like your opinions.
I also sewed around the little red and white hearts with a blanket stitch. They look pretty cute.
I have several table runners now and I just got some bondable batting (is that the word?). You press it and it sticks to the fabric. I'm going to use this batting and machine quilt these little runners....I'll show them when they are finished. I did not work on my 12th block today. I will start on it tomorrow and see if I can finish it this week....Here's some pics. Give me your opinion please. Til next time...
