The days fly by - but here is some WIP

Quilting the Christmas table runner

I love quilting action shots! I have been quilting my table runner for the Modern Christmas Table Runner Swap.

Christmas table runner, ready to quilt

I have a small nagging feeling this is not very modern but I am hoping that since I used modern fabrics (after all surely Grunge is modern, right?) it will squeek by.

Blocks for Claire

These log cabins are a new project - a quilt for a friend who is about 14. She asked for squares and white sashing and gave me a rainbow of fabrics she liked and I have been adding bits of everything I have to make it scrappy. I will need about 35 of these to make a quilt, although I may make the blocks  in varying sizes which will mean I need more than that. I am trying to decide whether I should try to stick to monochrome blocks or just move to warm and cool ones with multiple colours in those ranges.

Angel Quilt for me from Mamacjt

And look at this beauty! You know how you feel when you get close to a rock star or a famous person - well this is just like that. It is from Carol who blogs at Mamacjt. She is one of my quilting heros and she sent me this Angel Quilt for being so patient in DQS11. It is not big, 12" x 10" (smaller than a ceramic tile in my kitchen) and it is perfect!

Those swap mamas in DQS sure take good care of the bebes, and besides this quilt from Carol, my mama, Kim (she is quiltinkimmie on flickr) was especially good to me. I am hoping to join in next time too.

I am linking to my usual WIP groups. I hope you have time to visit some of the projects there, they are always wonderful. I am hoping to visit them all but I expect it will take me to the end of the weekend to  do that, but it is so worth it.
