A Quilting Project

I found this in my draft folder. Oops! For Christmas, I made up 6 quilted table runners for the various ladies in my immediate family. Of course, I forgot to take pictures of the finished products...so just IMAGINE that they were fabulous, m'kay? Thanks a heap.

My friends, I have discovered that I have a finite amount of "disposable time" during any given 24 hour period. Shocking, I know.

Apparently, if I wish to have any sort of a Handmade Holiday...this precludes any sort of documentation of the process or proceedings. Forgive me.

Above, you see the fruits of my labors...and one of several projects. That particular one, I believe, is wrapped up and ready to be shipped to its final destination.

Farewell, Quilting Project No. 1 - I bid you, adieu.

(I also find that I am shockingly addicted to freemotion quilting, and quite unable to bring myself to sew in a straight line when faced with any sort of a quilt sandwhich. What a predicament! Something about the meandering and the looping and curving...almost like frolicking in a field. Or perhaps it simply illustrates the natural tendency of my mind to wander?)

(This voice of this post is blatantly borrowed and inspired by Tollipop. If you haven't met her yet, I highly recommend you head over and see what all the to-do is about, dahling. )

I'm sure they were all quite beautiful. Isn't free motion quilting fun? I enjoy it too - wish I had discovered it years ago.

Mine is on my table- I'll take a picture and post it this week. LOVE LOVE LOVE it :) Still giggling that Mom thought your free-motion-quilting followed a pattern. I'd be blind for a week if I tried to follow a pattern like that :)
