I promised to show my progress on my Home for the Holidays quilt. I'm happy to report that I have gotten the borders on - anyone else have the pattern? Please be aware that the setting triangles are cut so that the edge around the centre of the top is all bias! It was a bit of a struggle to get the inner border on nicely, I had to pin it every three inches - so if you plan on making this, cut the squares so you get the grain of the fabric along the edge! That was my little rant of the day - earlier today I have been playing with some meandering - this is a sneak preview - upper corner is the back, the other half is a piece of the top:
I do have a finish to show. Coming home from the guild meeting on Wednesday, Nemo and I challenged each other that by the next meeting we would make a small bag for our coffee/tea mug that we bring to the meetings. I really love those drawstring bags that May Britt makes, and figured I'd give it a try. This is what I ended up with:
Quiltegaarden, it was quick and easy to stitch - I started it Thursday night - and I think it is really cute! The royal blue fabric was a part of my Xmas pressie from sweet friend Rose, and I think it works great in this little bag. The cream and blue was a purchase from my trip to Trysil in October :o)
I have an apology to make: I know I haven't been very good at responding to your sweet comments lately, that doesn't mean I don't read them, and I appreciate each and every one of them! I'll try to catch up with my inbox soon.
Hope you had a great and productive weekend!
Sincerely, Anne Ida
