In The Works Wednesday

I spent most of Monday moving things back into my quilt room. In the evening, I continued stitching the wool leaves on my table runner. I’m using Valdani thread, 12 wt. for the stitching. Some are stitching with matching thread, others with a different color. I have done a running stitch outline on a few of the leaves as well. Here’s a few photos of them.

A closer view of the leaves. I just need to finish the three on the right!

I was surprised and delighted when Susan of Quilt Fabrication highlighted my runner in her Midweek Makers post today. Thanks so much, Susan!

I’ve been thinking about how to quilt the table runner. I have some ideas and I’ll begin practicing some of those this week. I had hoped to have this runner done by now, but I want to take this part slow and enjoy the process.

I’m almost caught up with the Quilters Madder Quilt Along. I finished the second step last night. Today, I’ll finish the third step and be ready for the reveal on Friday. I’ve really enjoyed this and hope to do another QAL with Humble Quilts soon. Here are my Step 2 pieces.

48 little HST’s! That’s my new floor in the background — a vinyl tile that look like cork.

One other highlight of the week was winning an Instagram drawing from Aurifil threads for their 20K Giveaway. I won 20 small spools of Aurifil thread! That should help with my machine quilting practice, since I’ll no longer have the excuse of not having the right color of quilting thread – haha!

I’ve partially moved back into my quilt room. It is now a workable space once again. However, there are boxes and whatnot that still need to be moved back, downsized, or gotten rid of. I’ll tackle that the rest of this week as well.

Linking up today with Quilt Fabrication and Sew Fresh Quilts.
