I have been quilting on a little quilt for charity and having fun with it. I finished the quilting on it and now just need to bind it. I'll show you that little quilt when it's bound.
Tuesday night was tatting night and I'm back to tatting crosses....so relaxing and fun to do!
Wednesday night, I had to watch DALLAS! I love it. JR hasn't changed at all except for his eyebrows getting bushier! I watched this show years ago and couldn't resist watching it again. I don't live too far from Southfork Ranch and trust me, it's just a little smaller than what they are saying on the show! Anyway, it's fun to watch with all the scheming and conniving going on on the show. I hope you guys are enjoying it too....
Last night I went and sewed with some friends at the church. I forgot to sign up for Heidi and Bobbi's Friday night sew in but I thought about it last night! I hope all of you had fun sewing together!
I visited with my friends and got a few things done too. I cut strips for some 9 Patches and sewed the strips together. I also sewed up a red, white and blue round tablerunner. I saw this on Barbara's blog (Bejeweled) and loved it. I ordered the fabric from her sister's site, Inchworm Fabrics and got the pattern free. It was easy and quick to do and I have enough fabric left for one more... I still have to quilt it but it will be next in line. I want to have it on my table for the 4th of July!
Today, I put together 40 purple nine patches for my exchange this month.
Here's a picture of 80 nine patches together in two sets...they are not sewn together. I have 40 to sew together now and I'll get 40 more this Thursday too. I think you call this a postage stamp quilt but I'm not sure.
With my left over fabric from the 9 patches, I put together 4 Disappearing 4 patches but...I cut them the wrong size so I can't use them for the project I intended. :-(
Oh, well, I'll use them for something along the way.
See how much smaller they are compared to the other DP4 patches I'd done? I started out with 5 inch squares and found some leftover squares in my UFO box that I thought I used for the project. They were 4 1/2" so I cut the purples down to that size without measuring...Well, duh! I have a little bit left over so maybe I can make some DP4 in the right size. I wanted to sew more but the kids are coming over and the baby is waking up so I'll have to stop for now. Hopefully, I can get some more sewing time in tomorrow afternoon. Til then, happy sewing!
