I spent some good quality time in my sewing room today. I have a bad habit of telling myself that I can do whatever I want on the weekends. That means housework and other tiresome duties get neglected. This is a new table runner I made with some Heather Bailey scraps. Really no quilting knowledge needed here. You simply sew pieces of fabric together and trim it to the size you want. This is a fun change for the most dearly anticipated spring season. (I heard you can decorate for spring after Valentine’s Day. Yippee!)
Here’s a box of fat quarters (fabric cut 18″x21″=quarter of a yard). It’s so fun to go through fabric and see what you have in your stash. I always think I should use up what I have, but then I go shopping and just can’t resist picking up something new. Many quilters have boxes and boxes of unused fabric! I’m not there yet…I hope I never am. In the background you can see one of my favorite hand dyed balls of yarn. I have yet to think of the perfect project for that.
Happy President’s Day!
