I am working slowly but steadily on hand-quilting the Angel quilt, which I made here my One Monthly Goal for November. Since this is a primitive quilt, I am using a big stitch, and stitching around the blocks, around the angels, and stitching stars in the backgrounds and a heart on the angels. I should have this finished easily by the end of the month I think.
The other thing I have been working on is my other daughter's Christmas table runner. Because I had most of the components of this leftover from the one I made here for the Christmas in July Blog Hop put on by Sarah @Confessions of a Fabric Addict, it the main part was getting the redwork done. I have it all set up now to quilt in the next couple of days.
I'm beginning to come to the conclusion I have a big scrap problem. I have this big bag, one of those plastic zip-up bags that a comforter comes in filled with scraps.
I also have this other one filled with children's type fabrics and a bunch of fabric left over from grandson Keaton's Star Wars quilt.,
I have been using Bonnie Hunter's Scrap User's System, and every couple of weeks I cut a bunch of fabric into strips, squares and blocks. I have spent the past 5 days off and on cutting fabric up. That first picture was taken after I was done for this round.
This was what I accomplished this time.
In going through those scrap bags, I found a bunch of bonus triangles, which I have been using as leader-enders, and got these all trimmed up today too.
I have to get this house cleaned up for Thanksgiving so I am putting my scraps away again.
I've also come to the conclusion I have a UFO problem also. I found this in the closet from a class I took in Sisters, Oregon a number of years ago. I have 5 blocks finished, some parts of blocks, and pieces cut out. The quilt is apparently called Tumbling Stars. I'm trying not to let this get me side-tracked. Maybe I should put it back in the closet!
I'm going to link up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict for Can I Get a Whoop Whoop.
Thanks for stopping by!
