Spool blocks made from Authentic by Sweetwater. The dessert roll I purchased some time ago did not include the print with words on it. Bummer! The blocks are fairly big at 8.75 inches square. I’ll play with this today to see what it’s going to become.
Head on over to Judy’s blog to see more design walls!
You know those little triangles that get chopped off when you make a 45 degree corner?
I ended up with a little pinwheel mini top. It’s 7.5 inches square. Isn’t it cute?
Have a creative day!
I joined the Free motion quilt-along at A Few Scraps blog. This is what we’ve done so far.
Practice piece for checking tension and general messing around.
I’m pretty much following Christina’s suggestions as we go along.
Wavy lines or “wiggles”
Ribbon candy. This one needs some work!
There’s a Flickr group if you’d like to see what some more examples.
Project Runway tonight without Casanova. It just won’t be the same!
Time to update my neglected blog! I’m linking to Sew & Tell Fridays at amylouwho’s blog. Thanks Amy!
This was a sneak peek from a couple of weeks ago. Thanks to the lovely readers who identified these as duck feet since that’s what I was going for. The first try was more akin to a kite or an emblem of some sort. Sadly, I’m not much of an artist:)
So here is my Duck Tracks table runner! This is a gift that my sister-in-law asked me to make for a friend of hers who raises ducks. We wanted it to be cute without being juvenile. What do you think? (These pictures are crummy and I apologize for that! Too lazy to take them outside.)I used my embroidery feature to do the “Quack!” on the corners.
Her friend is also a former teacher and loves bright colors. I thought Make Life by Sweetwater was a good choice for this project.
My first go at half square triangles in a project was successful, but not easy to get things to fit! It was definitely a learning process.

More scraps turned into a couple of potholders.
My KitchenAid mixer got a new cover.
Thanks for stopping! Have a great weekend:)
