Another Warm Sunday

Happy Sunday morning!  Already hot and humid at 10:00 AM.

A bit of catchup.  First today is a hexagon quilt I hand-pieced before the recent unpleasantness.  After things improved a bit, I walking foot machine quilted it.  For those who have the vapors because I machine quilted a hand-pieced top, GET OVER IT!  I cannot hand quilt right now, but I was able to finish it this way.  No shame in doing what works.

Close-up of the quilting.  Love it!

A tablerunner I made for a friend.  All batiks.  Machine pieced.

 The back.

Also made for a friend.  Can we just say, when possible I like to cut and add my triangles, NOT use rectangles and squares!


Quilting.


Back, using folded squares as hangars.


The hand stitching of binding is getting easier and my last binding was close to "before the unpleasantness".  The mask making continues.  Also making things for a baby due in August.  

That's it for now.  Wear your masks appropriately (nose, mouth and chin covered).  It's good for us all to be safe.

Distant hugs,
Sharon

  2. You are such an inspiration. To have survived the "unpleasantness" and made the progress you have is fantastic. I love seeing your progress in doing what you love.
