Promised Kathie a Picture


I was reading Kathie's blog and saw that she just pieced a little snowball quilt. Hers is blue with white snowballs and so cute. I am nearly finished handquilting this little runner. I started making the blocks because I was going to make a sampler quilt, then I decided I should not take on another big time-consuming project. Aren't you proud of me? So I used the blocks to make this runner instead.

Nearly finished with the quilting. I did a double diagonal line (1/4" apart) through the center of each snowball. One line would have taken half the time, but it is so small! This has been my YMCA project for about a week. I work on it after I finish my circuit on the exercise machines and am waiting for the others in my family. No problem for me to wait! More hand quilting time.

I love your table runner - the fabrics are really pretty! I saw Kathie's quilt today also and it's a pretty quilt - loved the fabrics she used too!

this is adorable! I decided I needed to make a scrappy one too! oh love that black fabric on the bottom row and those stars and moon fabric is wonderful, is that a new fabric????
but it will be a big quilt this time!
and I think I will do the snowball corners liberated!
that way I don't have to worry about matching all those points AND I can use the little pieces I have!
Happy New Year!
Congrats on gaining a son too!
how wonderful
