I knew I’d be able to finish these small projects this month, but I didn’t think I’d finish them so quickly! The first one is a runner for my sister’s makeup table and since there were extra pieces we didn’t need for the runner length, I made a small pillow for her that matches. I even put a zipper in the side – first time for me! – and the pillow insert is a little small, but that’s ok, I think she’ll like it anyway.
The other project was the Valentine’s runner for my island. I’ve made Cathedral Window things before, using the Missouri Star method. The first one I ever made was using 2.5″ squares and that was difficult. It’s pretty easy when you use charm packs. I have 3 more of these runners to make with holiday fabrics, we’ll see if I can fit them in soon.
Since I finished these projects, I basted and started quilting another project, I posted about that last week. House is empty today, I only have a few household chores to do, so I’m hoping to get a lot of the quilting done today. It’s 2/22/22 and my little 2nd grader was so excited to wear 2 different shoes, a tie and I did 2 braids in her hair today. It’s so cool the things they do at school to celebrate these special days during the school year.
I’m determined to get things off my UFO list this year, no matter how small they are! Linking up to OMG finishes at Elm Creek Quilts.
