Giant tablerunner or….Lazy Sunday
Am I making a GIANT table runner or what?? Not really, I pulled out all the pieces to Lazy Sunday which is Bonnie Hunter’s newest mystery quilt that appeared in the last 4 issues of Quiltmaker. and decided to start putting it together.
It is always so much fun to work on one of her quilts and use up lots of fabric from your stash. I figured I had better get working on this if I want it finished before her next one starts in November.
If you are curious to see the different parts of this mystery quilt you can check out my other posts about it – Part 1, Part 2 and
Want to see what else I was working on yesterday…..these are not UFOs….they are projects that I hope to have finished by the end of September. I also have a couple of patterns that I hope to finish up soon.
Since I don’t have a quilt on the frame I decided to get a bunch of projects ready to quilt and have them out where I have to look at them. I finished off the last of the bolt of batting but I haven’t opened the new case yet. I forgot to mention that the case of Warm & Natural that I bought was 40 yards by 90 inches wide.
A lot of times people ask how I seem to get so much done…..I really like to work on multiple projects all the time. I enjoy having lots of small things to work on that can be completed fast and also several large quilts waiting to be quilted. If I had to choose one part of quilting that I liked best….I guess it would have to be piecing but……quilting always seems to make a piece come alive.
The boxes below the table…..scrap boxes separated by color…..I have another box in my quilt room that I throw fabric into until it fills up….then I separate the colors. More and more I am also cutting scraps up right away into block sizes that I use all the time.
Our weather has changed again…..we had a couple of days of fall weather, windows open, blanket on the bed and now we are back to the 90s again….yuck! Do we turn on the air-conditioner or not?
