I finished binding this next table runner a while ago, but haven’t had the chance to post it here. I made some cool candle holders for Christmas gifts this year, and wanted something to put them on, to make them stand out. (I saw the idea for the candle holders on Pinterest, though they used frosted spraypaint, and I actually sandblasted them to get the frosted effect).
Heres a closer shot of one of the ends & quilting
And last, a shot with the candleholders on it 🙂
I spent last weekend at a monthly retreat, which I truly enjoy, since it is pretty much the ONLY time I get to spend working on things for myself (well, not necessarily things for myself, but things I WANT to work on, lol). I was able to get two small quilts pieced there this month, but when I got home, and added it to the pile of things that need quilted ….
I was reminded what being a longarm quilter is all about, LOL! I seriously need to come up with some kind of schedule to start getting some of my stuff quilted between customer quilts. Ugh, if only I could take the quilting machine to retreat every month, lol, then maybe I’d get something done …. rather than just adding to the stack.
Better get outside and clear the snow off my car (again), I am SOOOO sick of doing this, it really needs to quit snowing EVERY day!!!
