I finally have something to show you for Design Wall Monday. It's been a while since I've been able to get into the sewing room and I'm so glad that I was at least able to sew a few seams together this week. Remember this table runner that was the on my wall last DWM?
Well, I just didn't like that brown border,the more I looked at it so I decided to go with the gold instead and I'm so glad I did. The whole thing is so much better I think. I'll use the brown for the binding. It's waiting for a backing which I ordered from Hancock's of Paducah, I love that place. The catalog is yummy and they have a great selection of quilt back yardage on sale right now.
Then I moved on to my Memories of Provence block of the month. Because I was traveling I'm behind a month so I need to get crack'n. This is block #9 and I think it's really nice but let me tell you right now that the directions I was given for construction just made no sense to me.
I struggled and struggled with this unit. Until I finally resorted to math and the tried and true method of constructing HTS. When I did it came out perfectly. I really wanted to learn something new to add to my knowledge but the only thing that happend was a waste of fabric and about two hours of my day! Good thing I purchased some extra fat quarters of fabric when I had the chance or I would have been out of luck on this one.
Until next time,
