I may have been a bit quiet of late, but I have been stitching! This table runner is pieced from the Wintergreen charm square collection by Moda. It is a very traditional look but that's what I wanted.
Because I am focusing on learning accurate piecing, working with charm squares was quite a challenge as they are not consistently 5" squares. They have their advantages in that you get lovely collections but I think I will avoid them in the future unless the project calls for smaller units which could then be cut accurately from the charm squares.
I also made some BIG bunting and enjoyed it very much so I have fabric to make some small bunting to hang from the mantelpiece at Christmas.
I have also finished quilting Foxglove Fancy and will post pics when I have sewn down the binding. An expensive buy at Harrogate was a 1/4" dual feed foot for my Janome Horizon But it made for very accurate machine stitching of the binding on the tablerunner and on the Foxglove quilt, and really helped with sewing the mitred corners.
Projects in the pipeline are a pin cushion and tidy for me to have by my sewing machine, and a Nook cover for my SIL.
And last, but by no means least, an early Christmas present from my big brother...a Gidget II sewing table which allows me to quilt at table level with Big Daisy! A real treat.
