Monday Meanderings 2 - 12 - 2018

I've finished the heart table runner top. Wish it was quilted but I've been neglecting my quilting some what this week.  Here's what it looks like now.  I'm trying to decide whether I should quilt it on my Bernina with in the ditch stitching or whether I should go fancy and find a hear design to place in each heart thus needing to quilt on the long arm.   Hum.  I bet I finish it on my Bernina. But who knows when! 

I also spent a small amount of time making up a pillowcase from a kit I had cut out in January.  I bought the fabric last fall specifically to make pillowcases for Ryan's Case for Smiles. But I bought way too much fabric.  I'll probably make some this year and more next year. 

This design drives me a bit crazy.  I wish it was designed so when made in a pillowcase everyone was right side up when shown on the side like this.  I'm sure some little person will like the rabbits doing things in the spring.  Now to get a few more made up.  I'd love to use it all up but probably won't happen any time soon. 

I did make progress on most of my goals. I started and finished a customer quilt yesterday so time I would have spent on my goals was hijacked.  I also figured out I wasn't putting the plus quilt together correctly so I'm fixing that little issue and trying to decide whether to make it longer than wider.  But it's already about 70" long and it is suppose to be a lap quilt. That seems long enough!

Happy Quilting All! Bonnie 


  1. ❤️ the runner and the pillowcase. I have trouble with directional fabric when making pillowcases. You did well with your goals last week.

  2. Don't sweat the directional print. Kids won't mind at all. It's just us OCD adults who can't hack it!! Cute hearts.

  3. I guess I'm one of the OCD adults. I fussy cut my pieces for pillowcases when I use directional fabric. Cute hearts. Did you see the heart digital patterns on intelligent quilting today?

  4. That rabbit fabric is darling! That will make a child smile, I'm sure. Your hearts look really nice, too. Will you try to finish it by Valentine's Day?

  5. Beautiful job on your hearts table runner. I think I used stitch in the ditch on one I made last year that was very similar to yours. Pretty fabric on your pillow case. Happy Valentine's Day!

  6. Love your hearts! Those turned out so pretty. At least each pillow case uses up a good amount of fabric each time you finish one. Those bunnies are really cute. Hope you've made good progress on this week's goals.


I am pleased you've come to visit. I hope you will leave a comment.
