I must admit that with four months of being locked down at home due the this Covid virus I am bored. Coming up with afternoon quilt projects is no longer as much fun as it was in the beginning. But, one must find something besides gardening and housework to occupy ones time.
I pulled out another new pattern from the cabinet and decided that as long as it was still July and I have tons of Christmas stash I would make another Christmas item.
This is the 19.5" table topper. I considered some placemats and I may actually do some for husband and I.
I started quilting it, but about half way through ran out of thread. I am using YLI Machine Quilting thread Festival. It is variegated green and red thread. So I have ordered it and it should arrive some time late this week to finish this up.
Actually this is a Christmas gift. Yes, things are really getting bad around here. My guild, hopefully we will be able to meet in December and have a Christmas dinner and we exchange gifts. I usually make something and then pop in a JoAnn's gift certificate with it. I thought this little needle case would be a fun little item to gift.
It has a felt needle holder in its center and two little pockets on each end to hold, well a gift card!
And it finishes up really nicely with a ribbon tie.
Yes, last weeks table runner is complete. I think it really is very pretty.
I did lots and lots of quilting on it. I was a bit concerned with all those curved seams and there was a bit of wobble, but it quilted out nice and flat.
The courtship continues of Marilyn my daughter's one and only peahen by one of her four males. Marilyn doesn't look very impressed.
