Here is a finished table runner. I practiced with a different stitch in each star. I liked it and think I have enough material to make another one. I am going to give this one to a coworker, just for fun. I will share that on this quilt, I made a huge mistake. I found near the end of quilting it that I was 6 inches short on the backing. So off the frame, added more fabric, back on the frame to finish the last row. I laughed so hard and my poor measuring skill!!
More Civil War Diary quilt blocks. This one was easy and cute,
a rail fence was a little treat,
this one has over 60 pieces in it but is so pretty,
love the fabric collection in this one,
classic pinwheel and the points are pretty good,
and the tiny squares went fast. I have 30 blocks left to go.
This has been a week of challenges. We had no working plumbing in the kitchen. The plumber that came couldn't fix it without re plumbing it for $1200 that we didn't have. So my husband did it. I was thrilled. For $50 and a Saturday, now it works better than ever. DS was the assistant and learned about plumbing. I have a clean kitchen and house now! Ah, the challenges of living in a 100 year old house.
To celebrate our little victory, DH and I went and saw Fiddler on The Roof at the Old Town Playhouse. OK, we had tickets purchased prior to the kitchen problems. It was the best play I had ever! I love this story but the acting and singing was great! A wonderful date night.
