With the Fourth of July my first week in business is coming to a close today. It has been an exciting week meeting new people and seeing old friends but I managed to squeeze in a little quilting.
I am quilting a Swoon Quilt made from Bonnie and Camille for a customer. It is going to be beautiful with all the intricate patterns.
On the sewing machine, I have two projects going…one is never enough is it? When Reindeer Magic from Henry Glass & Co. came in I knew I had to make a quilt from it. I am a snowman fanatic and the panel is so cute with the snowman and reindeer. I started creating on my EQ7 and came up with a pattern that I felt fit the fabric well. It includes 2 sets of four patch borders that are in a random pattern – not my strong suit. I like things even and in line but it’s time to step out of my comfort zone a little. The outside border will utilize the candy cane squares that come on the border as cornerstones.
My final project of the week is a patriotic table runner. It is an appliqué pattern, which for me goes a little slower than regular piecing. I love the look of appliqué, it just adds dimension to a quilt or table runner. This one should be finished today (at least I hope as tomorrow is the Fourth).
Happy Quilting and Happy Fourth of July from all of us at Honeycomb Quilts!
