Life has been crazy since I returned from my vacation in Minnesota. I'm ready for another already, but there is now time right now. We are in the final stages of getting our Pattern's ready to print. I'm so nervous and excited at the same time. Can't wait to show them off, here in the near future.
I did find time this past week to work on a small project that My Friend Jean sent home with me from Minnesota. When
we were at the Hingeley Road Quilt Shop in Floodwood, Minnesota she
found some batiks with wine grapes and in the color of here dining room
she asked if I would make a table runner for her, didn't have to be
fancy. So when I returned home, with all the fabric, I started playing
around in EQ7 and came up with this idea.
idea just to make 5 snowball blocks and put borders on them. then I
came up with idea of adding the family names to all the snowball blocks
with Monogram lettering, with my embroidery machine.
It took me just about a half to make the whole tablerunner including machine embroidering the names on the blocks.
quilting took me a day to complete, due to I put some custom quilting
around the embroidered names to make the names pop out. Lots of loop to
loop in the detail. Then I added grape leaves in the middle between each block and the borders to finish it off.
I need to get the binding on today and finished this weekend. So I can
give it to her in person next week. Cant wait to see her.
Have a great Quilting Day,
