SOMETIMES A GIRL'S GOTTA SEW!
I just finished binding the mini tumbler table runner I've been working on in my spare time.
Cutting the tumblers was a little fussy but sewing them together wasn't too bad. Reggie did the quilting for me and as usual she did a great job. She surprised me with it yesterday by bringing it to me and leaving it on our front door.
The runner finished up 17x40 inches. I had no pattern, I just did my own thing. The quilting in the red bands is especially cute. Thanks, Reggie!!
Now I can work on the Luna Notte quilt for our daughter. I have a deadline so maybe I can get motivated.
We just bought a new clothes dryer that has a Steam feature. I experimented today by running a 3-yard piece of wrinkled 108" quilt backing through the steam cycle and it came out wrinkle free. I always have had to press my backings and the super wide ones seem to take forever. This will save me measurable time.
Wishing you a wonderful Tuesday....
