What's on the Frame
Today, Lydia and I are doing a joint effort on completing Christmas gifts, my first official day out of school -hoorah! She has table runners that have been waiting for me to "load" them on the frame. Why does it seem to take so long to put a project on the frame, but not so long to sew it? I think it is just more fun to do the sewing!
These have different backs, but we stitched them together so that we could put four runners on at once. I used white thread for all to keep it easier. The two brown ones use the same fabrics, but it was pretty neat to see how the black frame made such a stunning change. I also quilted it with blended styles, as it is going to a gal with a little more modern flair. (click to enlarge) Now, Lydia has the job of binding them! She's finishing the green one as I blog. . . .
This is my Christmas version of "Ticker Tape" finished and given to our preacher and his wife. These are really a fun break to the fine matching of points and seams! (She had it displayed with the backing side up; it was a beautiful backing, do you think she didn't care for the raggedy look? lol)
I have a few more of these planned, for those fill in sewing times, when you just want to have a good time finishing something.
More to do, I guess I better get going!
Happy Quilting! Pokey
