Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

40 Day Challenge – Day 4

This afternoon I bound this table runner. I made it to test a pattern I wrote, pulling fabric from my stash.  The fabrics didn’t work as well as I hoped, so it sat for 7 years before I quilted it.  Then it sat in the to be bound pile for 7 months until I found fabric to bind it with. Because I’m lazy I used Susie’s Magic Binding. I have to say that pop of dark green sets if off and now I think the fabrics work.  Or maybe it’s just because it’s finished.

Next up was the first pair of pants to be hemmed. When I realized I was going to have to CUT the pants, I wanted confirmation of the length. It’s a good thing I asked. My niece realized there have been some substitutions since she gave me the pants back in February/March and needed to double check the sizes/length. Someone must be taller as there is one pair I don’t have to hem.

While I was wait to hear from my niece, I started looking for fabric to bind Now and Later, which I’ve been calling Then and Now.  Well, actually I started to look for fabric to bind Narragansett Blues, but I realized I either used the fabric, or never had any to begin with. Since I’m not ready to tackle the binding for Allietare, Now and Later moved to the top.

I’m not sure what I planned to bind this quilt with – possibly blue given I quilted it with blue, but I like the green and yellow.

That leaves the following:

  • A customer’s quilt – binding needs to be pressed, then can be attached and stitched down 6/6/2020
  • Allietaire – plan do do both scallops and a 2 color binding.
  • Narragansett Blues
  • Sister Swap # 3 – The binding is made just needs to be attached and stitched down 6/6/2020
  • Then & Now 6/7/2020
  • Baby 4-Patch Stacked Posies
  • Tablerunner – Finally figured out what I am going to use – 6/7/2020
  • The quilt with the striped backing needs a label and delivered
  • I’m behind on my Star Studded BOM. I have fabric for 11 or 12 large blocks and 23 6-inch blocks.
  • The log cabin quilt needs to be quilted bound and labeled.
  • The blue, black and white quilt is my Frolic the goal is to finish the top.
  • Although not quilting, there are 9 8 pair of pants which need to be shortened.
  • Bonus #1 – Pillowcases:
    • the customer quilt 6/6/2020
    • Allietaire
    • Narragansett Blues
    • Log cabin quilt (2)
