Monday Meanderings 2 - 5 - 2018

Here's one of the projects I worked on this week. It took me two weeks to finally cut out the Taps quilt but I started sewing it while I was sewing the Plus quilt blocks together.  Um, that Taps quilt went together really fast.

This pattern is called Two's Company from Kariepatch Designs. I've used it several times to make donation quilts.  So far the three rows are together.  Once I sew the rows together I'll figure out which fabrics I have enough of to do the borders with.  It is going to be 43 x 55" unless I make some changes to the borders to make it slightly bigger. 

Next I pulled some fabrics to make a Valentine's Day table runner.  Do you check in with Moda Bake Shop?  They have some lovely free patterns.  I fell for this one designed by Kristina of Center Streets Quilts.
I pulled fabrics over the weekend but haven't started cutting it. The table runner shown measures 62 x 41" which is way too long for my dining room table.  So I'll only be making 3 hearts instead of 5.  I've actually figured out how many pieces I need for the shortened quilt and should be ready to cut it out soon. (Hey, if I don't get it done by Valentine's Day that's ok.  I'll have it done before the next one.) 

Here's my stashbusting statistics for January.  I purposely held out from buying any fabric in January.  I really had enough hanging around the stash so I used it instead.  Note: Woohoo! I didn't buy any in December either.  Be prepared for some pent up stash enhancement going on in February although I've been out shopping -- just haven't found what I want.

  2. WaHoo, look at all those accomplished goals for last week!

    I like the Two's Company pattern for quick quilts, too. He heart table runner is adorable. With some strategic fabric changes the upside down heart could be a cute Santa.

  6. I love your heart table runner, thank you for the hint that it maybe too long for my table. Great idea for the Stash Busting Report....Along with your beautiful cover picture. Think Spring. It was -25 in NW Wisconsin yesterday morning. Only -10 this morning...Heat Wave.
