Straight from the Sewing Table

--NEW--

Katie Fiber Art

 
Totally new.  Totally on a whim.  Totally inspired.  Totally excited to add a ton more detail and realism to this!!

--ONGOING--
 
X Marks the Spot 

No real progress on this one last week.  I did pull the stack out of the basket, but really need to spend some time with my design wall to settle on the layout. 

I decided for my One Thing, One Week Challenge with Amy from Amy's Creative Side... I will work on this layout.  Yup, that's my goal!!  Looking forward to it!

Crewel Spring Flowers

Not technically quilting, but I will continue to include it anyway.  Still slow going, but the relaxing aspects of it can't be matched.  I am still working on the third flower of nine.  The reds in this one are so perky.  Can't wait to see what it looks like with the green stems and leaves added in!

Tulip Runner

I thought for sure this project was going to die before it even started.  But, after it's long run on the no progress list I had a break through and spent my FNSI... that's Friday Night Sew-in.... dedicated to making this come to life.  When you last saw it here, the blocks were still without leaves.

I have since finished the blocks -- 12 inches square.  I also picked an order for them and sewed them together -- it's five feet long, ha!  Yes, it's headed for a very big long table.  I am still deciding to add a border or not to add a border.  What do you think? 

And then, I will settle on a backing and get this one sandwiched together.  I should made good progress on this one over the next week!


Bottled Rainbows
I am still waiting for my solids to arrive. 
I have organized my scraps into what I think will be color groups to coordinate with the solids.  I also cut out all 16 plain centers.  I decided to use a nice crisp white.  So, I am ready to go as soon as I have all my materials in hand.  Can't wait! 
Read more about the Bottled Rainbows Quilt-a-long if you like.... or join even if you are thinking of still joining!!
