WIP Wednesday

Happy Cinco de Mayo, sewing friends!

Being the wild girl that I am, I celebrated with a little sewing :-)

Here's what I've been working on . . .

potholders for the Potholder Pass 3 -

WIP - Potholder Pass 3


WIP - Potholder Pass 3


I can't even tell you how excited I am about these potholders. My secret partner requested "bright and modern," which is right up my ally! I just need to hand sew the binding to the back and these fun potholders will be done.


Next is a work in progress that's been sitting around since December -


WIP - Disappearing 9 Patch Tablerunner


Sad but true, this table runner has been sitting like this since Christmas! Everything but the binding is done. What's even more pitiful is that I've been using this on my dresser for at least a month . . . with no binding on it! (Can you tell that's my least favorite part?)


Looks like I need to hunker down and have a little binding party tonight. (Yup, that's how I roll!)


Have yourselves a happy Cinco de Mayo!
Mary

  7. awesome potholders! They are so modern and jazzy! Your runner looks awesome too. I have problems doing the quilting part! Binding is ok just takes awhile to do.

  9. I really, really like the colors of those pot holders! Bright and modern is up my alley as well. I think the whole concept of hand sewing bindings is what keeps me from trying out quilting-maybe something small like the potholders would be a great place to start.

  13. I just discovered your blog through flickr. You have some beautiful creations, but I especially like your photography. I find that it's challenging to take nice clear, but also interesting photos of quilts or table runners, and yours are beautiful.
