November is Flying By
Here are two redwork pieces I worked two to three years ago. They have been put away waiting for me to do be finished. And I have just about done that. Just finished putting the strips together for binding which will be the first small border. I think I have enough for both. They are both quilted and that didn't take much time since they are only about 18 x 24 inches and I did nothing fancy. So, by golly, another ufo has about hit the dust! Don't worry, though, I have plenty more! There was a third pattern with these - a cool Christmas tree - but I won't be making that. Will put it away for someone to find one day and maybe it will get made.
I also quilted the African tabletopper that I made a week or so ago and will get the binding ready for that. Just did straight line quilting with the walking foot and it turned out pretty well. I am glad that I can do a decent job of machine quilting but don't really like the time it takes to stop and start so many times. Love doing the small pieces but when they get much bigger than a baby quilt, I will have someone else do it.
