Sew much fun!



I got the backing, binding and quilt batting all organized for the table runners. If the fronts are more traditional the backs are all about improvisational. I can't believe I used to just put solid backings on at one time. Those were lost opportunities for personal expression.




Another page by page is in the works. I'm still working with almost no colour. I'm exploring texture thru fabrics but I'll be adding some quilting texture with some straight lines.
I decided the bargello would be a good project to end the day on. I wish it could be wider but that is all the gradated fabric I had. I didn't waste a sliver. I think I'll start sewing them together with the skinnies and see if I can get some wider strips included. The darn blue is wrongly oriented so I need to sleep on, 'what if I changed them to a horizontal flow?'.

I love that quilt will be nice to see when it is put together the colours are just wonderful.

I love the blue! It could be cool on the horizontal...
