A Finish!!

A Finish!!

table runner completedI finished hand stitching the binding down last night on my table runner!  This was made out of a charm pack called Blessings by Brannock and Patek for Moda.  I used my Accuquilt Go and my 4″ Finished Triangles in a Square die to cut out all the triangles.  It went together so quickly, and then it sat for a few months all pinned and ready to quilt.  I think it may have only taken an hour or so to quilt.  Why do I do that?  Get it ready and then let it sit when I can have it done and use it if I just sat down to quilt it.  Oh well, this one is done and ready to be used on the table.

I quilted the scrappy table topper yesterday afternoon, it only took a few hours to complete.  I put the binding on, and started doing the hand work last night after I finished the table runner.  I am hoping to finish working on that tonight.

Today I’m going to see if I can cut out the pieces I need for the 4 additional blocks for the Guild block exchange quilts.  I wanted to make mine a little larger so I’m making 4 blocks for the corners that match.  Almost all of the pieces I need can be cut out with my Go so I think maybe I can start sewing them together this afternoon.  I know it won’t get quilted before the December meeting, but I really just want to get the top completed before I forget about it!  We want to get more people signed up for next year!

Time to get to work on cutting, I’ll be back when I get the table topper finished.
