Yellow really is a great color, isn't it? I am gaga for all the fabrics in this pillow. And I love the "plaid" effect - it's fun.
Next, I finally began quilting my glass bowl quilt. I am so very please with the effect the Glide thread I am using has - it has a slight sheen, which makes it almost "glow," especially under direct light. I tried to show it in this photo:
And it flattened the piece out so nicely - I'm not going to have to worry after all about it being uneven, so I'm thrilled about that.
Lastly, I'm almost finished with my Sedona table runner. I love the colors - it really does look like the rocks in Sedona. This was a learning experience. I have enough fabric to make another now that I know how, and I plan to do so - have a couple of other ideas I want to try on. All it needs it binding and it will be finished as well.
|Here is a close up - I wanted the edges to be craggy, like rocks...|
I've also got the first five rows of Fly, Boy finished and I'm quite thrilled bout it. I had to stop for a while, because the thing is so darn intense - it literally takes an entire day of sewing to do three blocks, if I'm lucky. But slow and steady wins the race I hope. I really want it to be special so I'm taking my time - when I get sick of it I work on something else so I don't screw it up.
That's it for this week, can't wait to see everyone else's WIPs.
