"BELLY UP TO THE BAR"

And feast your eyes full of these Deletable Moda delights..... (next time I will hand out free slobber rags)....HA!!!

Today I had the mother lode of all headaches, couldn't sleep, rest, so I just sewed....and this is what I did? I just love how it turned out. Wish I had a better picture for you...this tends to be alittle dark. I added the extra row of blocks and finished the border. Now I just need backing material...hummmm



So what did I bake from scratch?

This table runner.


Not a good picture either (needs to be straightened...).... So in the process of using my scraps from the above quilt, I have baked up my own table runner design.....not such a bad day inspite of my headache from beyond. I did made alot of mistakes, I did tare out alot and I didn't work as fast but hey...it is a done deal!!!

Oh....my husband came in and asked why I was making a fall runner....hummmmm, scraps I said, scraps....he did like it but wants a spring one (oh..more fabric you says?.....I can fix that!! No problem)....

All this Moda goodness was curtesy of Inchworm Fabrics. You have your Aster manor by Three Sisters, your Civil War Homefront by Barbara Brackman, and Shangri-la by 3 Sisters....I think I snuck in a Kona bay as well....just love these fabrics and was delighted to put them all into one quilt.

Since fall are my favorite colors I do love the runner.
Guess you better go shopping for some spring fabrics.LOL

I *think* you made the fall one on purpose, knowing hubbie would ask about a spring one!! I see that plan!! Used it myself a couple of times!! lol!! Love the bowtie quilt, it really looks cool!

Beautiful quilt! Love the table runner too! :0)

Gene Black said...

Hmm... I have an idea for the schnibbles quilt. BUT I really wanted to use up some precuts on it. Maybe I will go "shopping" thru my stash again.
Oh, and I suppose I NEED to buy some background fabric.

Pat said...

hahahaha....all of this on a slow, sick day....little wonder why you make TONS of stuff on a day you are NOT feeling sick!!! Love these two projects, of course.

I'm sorry to hear you were suffering from a headache, but you sure a lot of beautiful work while you were feeling bad. I love the pieced border you've put on your little quilt.

Both are gorgeous. Hey, who doesn't love to work with fall colors. Yeah, I like Joanne's comment about your "plan".

Your Schnibbles came out great! I bought 3 patterns and have fabric for one but just can't find the time.

I like the finish to the bow tie, the single row of squares, and then framed by the solids works well. Your table runner is inspiring, too. Gee, I get a headache, and want to lay down!

Rae Ann said...

My Barb! I only dream of getting that much done in a day. Very beautiful!

Susan said...

Your Sunday Best looks terrific! The table runner is beautiful. It must feel nice to use up the scraps in the same day. Hope your headache has gone by now.
