Three tabletoppers are on the line!
I shared a bit about these tabletoppers last summer as they are made from the 2011 Quilt Minnesota fabrics. This is a simple little quilt that is perfect for the center of any table. I designed it for Firefly*Quilt*Shop in Mankato. Most of the fabrics used in these quilts is sold out, so last week I picked up my samples. Shown below is a close-up of each quilt..........
The*Noble*Wife that I will be using to make the sample for the tutorial. She sent plenty of fabrics to use for a project and some I can share in a giveaway. Sweet deal, huh? I'm going to start working on the project next week and will take my photos as I work through the project. I have a busy month ahead of prep-work for classes, a program and projects that take place in October. I'll give you all notice of when the tutorial will be shared.
Speaking of busy..........it was a very busy weekend. It started with just a normal Friday of grocery shopping but we ran errands and my husband was in search of a new winter coat so it was a long day. He didn't find a coat. Which was okay since summer doesn't seem to want to end here. The whole weekend was hot, including a hot topic in the news..........the Blue Moon.....................
I have several embroidery projects in progress. Some are sketches that are for future projects and some are projects I designed years ago and want to do again. The Angel Connection is a series of angels that I did in Redwork and now I am doing them on white and using colored pencils which will be outlined with embroidery floss. More on this after I begin the embroidery of the first angel.
That's all for now. I'm late getting this posted today so hope you all had a good weekend and that a good week is ahead for you all! I am headed to bed in hopes of a good night's sleep!
Next post up is our retreat fun. I started writing it then got side-tracked by the busy weekend. Oh, but I have just one more thing to share...............
