I started my two week quilting class on Friday and made these little babies! This quilting technique is very easy and super fast. I need ten of these squares to make my table runner and I am going to finish the last five today. On Friday we will put them all together in class. You make each square quilted as you go and the fabric on the back is the deep pink one and will also fold in to edge each square. Then I will simply
sew them together and voila - hopefully!
Here is a close up of the fabric
Isn't it pretty? I love vintage floral fabrics. This will look lovely on my dining room table.
We had such a cold snap on the weekend with temperatures of around -30C with windchill. We were inside most of the time, apart from church on Sunday obviously. I sometimes wish I could hibernate in winter - who am I kidding, I probably do - as much as I can that is! We really have had a fairly mild winter for Ottawa standards. My daughter thinks we are near the end, but I remind her that we are only at Feb 13th and have a long way to go yet. We will be white and won't see grass until at least mid to end of March!
Have a great Monday everyone!
