On The Wall Today

What a great weekend.  Most of it was spent at my sewing machine.  And when not in the sewing room, I was with family.  It just couldn't have been better.

I was able to finish my cardinal runner/hanging in time to take it to Quilting on the Square in Holton for show and tell. 
The finished size is 38" x 18 1/2". I put a hanging sleeve on the back so it can go on the wall or table top.

Here are a couple of close up pictures.  Which may not be such a good idea.  But here they are anyway.

I was also able to almost finish part 4 of Orca Bay .  I had a lot of fun with this part.  I pulled out most of my yellows and oranges.  There were only a few that just were not going to work for these blocks.  And the next time I need strings of this color there will already be some cut.  Unlike this time when there were almost none pre-cut.

There are just eight blocks left to finish.  So that will be done in no time. Then I will be able to move on to something else until the next part comes out this Friday.

Well since it is Monday it's off to work I go.  Have a great day and a wonderful week.

Beautiful table runner! We don't have cardinals here so they are always something I've wanted to see. Glad you had so much fun in your sewing room!

The cardinals are great, and your Orcas are the first I have seen in those shades, good going.

Your table runner turned out really nicely! Great job in keeping up with the mystery quilt. The strip blocks are looking good.

Your cardinal runner is sooooo pretty! I love how you quilted the veins in the leaves. I wish I had more yellows, but really like your idea of orange and yellow strings. They look amazing.
