I suffer from ADD in my sewing room when there are so many projects either on my 'to-do' list or left in limbo. I pick up one thing and put it down as soon as something else catches my eye.
The end result is that I finally finish things all at once.
The latest batch includes a quilt, a candle mat, and a table runner.
This seriously is not as wonky as it looks!
I can't even tell you how long ago I made this candle mat. It is made using the triangles cut away while making a table runner from border fabric. Jinny Beyer has a free pattern here. I have the table runner hanging with my to-be-quilted projects. I could quilt the candle mat on my sewing machine so I quickly finished it up and stitched down the binding while watching evening tv.
I made this quilt in Florida from a jelly roll. I can't remember the line but it is Fig Tree fabrics.
It is the simple 1600 quilt that has been buzzing around the Internet for a couple years.
It was the perfect match for this pillow I stitched years ago.
The final project (for this post, anyway) is a long forgotten table runner. Several years ago I took a class using the book One Block Wonder. It was one of the first things I quilted on my long arm. It only needed a binding so I put that on this week. It is a bit bright and crazy for me but you just never know when I'll need a bright flowery table runner.
Currently I am working on another quilt. The blocks were finished and in a box plus I have another on my long arm. Sewing blocks into rows then sewing rows is my least favorite phase. So far I've assembled (or almost assembled) 3 such tops from blocks all finished and tucked away. I quilt a little then sew a little then quilt a little....eventually I finish both a new quilt and a floppy to add to my to-be-quilted collection.
Today is gray and rainy so I will probably finish the fore-mentioned quilts. Then tomorrow is a shop hop/bus trip organized by my quilt guild. Woot. 'Need' has nothing to do with the fun of a day of fabric shopping.
