I dug into my stash for borders for the Stars and Bars QOV and stitched those on as well as made a backing and binding for it:
I also pieced my Color Box top. Tell me: how is it possible to begin with a box of 2 1/2" scraps:
Piece a top that is 72 x 84:
And still have this left:
I think I am going to simply piece all of these into 9-patches and find another pattern for them. I am determined to empty this box! I'm no longer going to stash 2 1/2" squares. I'll just keep strips because I think they'll give me more options in the long run.
Next up was the Valentine table runner and I quilted it, just using organic straight line stitching:
I made the binding and am stitching it on in the evenings as time allows.
Still, progress has been made. Makes me feel less guilty about adding new things to my list if I can cross a few off. :)
Today, I'm meeting my partner in crime in town and we're taking a road trip to another town to check out a new quilt shop that opened up 2 weeks ago. Stay tuned for my investigative report. :)
