Yeah! I completed another UFO. I have checked off 4 projects this year now. This is the latest completed projects. The table runner is on my cedar chest under the television. I usually have the pictures of the girls on either side of the box. This box was a gift quite a few years ago. It holds many votive candles. It is the inspiration for the Hoffman diamond quilt (it is the challenge for July).
I really like how it turned out. The bonus part….it is two sided. It has a Christmas runner on the other side.I made 2-sided binding. I will have to find the site my directions are from. I printed them out several years ago. I like the directions I have because it gives cutting directions for several different versions and includes pictures.
Next….#2 was drawn (Hoffman Turquoise Diamond Quilt). That is the quilt that was inspired by the box above. I work on this quilt back in February at retreat. I have the quilt sewn into rows already. It shouldn’t take much to finish up the top. That is the goal. I may see if I can get it layered. This is an old picture of the quilt.
My brother and his family arrive tonight….actually tomorrow morning very early. We will enjoy a day on the lake tomorrow. The temps are well into the 90’s and the humidity is high. Only real place to be is in the water.
I also had an old quilting friend come over today. She moved a couple towns away about 5 yrs. ago. We had a great time, just it was too short. We vowed to make it happen again. It was almost 3 years from the last time we saw each other.
Have a Happy 4th of July.
