Completed Runner

My runner top turned out great. Really not my style, but I do find the assembly of patchwork very satisfying. And it looks great at my mom's house. I even made it reversible. The patriotic side was much harder to give away than the irish chain.The quilting itself was a little shaky. A lot shaky. It was good practice though; I have two baby quilts in production that will need quilting soon. I started out trying to free motion with my fancy new Viking, but it was to smart for me. I ended up using my old Singer, which was hiding in my closet awaiting it's unknown fate after I upgraded last fall. It turns out it's fate for now is free-motion quilting; when you've worn the teeth off the feed dogs it becomes perfect for that.

Table Runner

And finished! Now to find a backing and quilt it.

He's a very good helper, even if most of what he does is play with his Tag while I work. He does like the way the Viking has buttons that beep.

Almost done.

Just because I haven't posted anything over here in forever doesn't mean I'm not getting anything done. I made 4 pairs of jammie pants for my favorite boys and girl for Christmas, and am wearing what I have deemed "deployment pants" right this minute. The monkey and I have been hard at work too. And our hard work last weekend
and today

is really starting to pay off. Tomorrow, an actual floor for the second level!
