Challenge #1

Hey! It’s been wonderfully busy over here- my days are full of quilting, knitting & cooking- I can honestly say I can’t remember being this peaceful.

I’ve also started challenging myself. A mini project completed every week. This happened by accident- I had some leftover log cabin blocks that I had sewed incorrectly for another project decided to pull them out & make something. Laid them out on the floor, tried some different arrangements & came about with this:

And instead of letting is sit on the shelf to be quilted in, oh, let’s say, about 5 years from now, I popped that sucker on the quilting machine right then! Used some of the music note fabric for the backing. (This is fabric from my mom’s stash. It’s been used on who knows how many projects, but I can tell you it’s magical- because EVERY SINGLE TIME I dig that fabric out of the bins, there’s always more. ALWAYS!) I used a favorite quilting pattern from Munnich Quilt Recipes, dug out some matching fabric for a binding & voila! A very nice little runner.

Granted it’s for Christmas & this is April, but hey- it’s done, I used stash, & I didn’t spend one added dime on this!
