Productive weekend

I did it. I put three borders on this sucker. But I sort of cheated because I mitered them. That means I sewed them in strips and put one border on. There is alot of math involved (which I like I might add) and I have a way to do it that is practically foolproof. (Besides the math part).

This quilt is my donation for our guild's Quilt Bingo in October. I took a stack 'n whack class and I liked this fabric but I am not crazy about this quilt. I should have used different colors for the alternating diamonds. Sometimes when I look at this picture I see the argyle-like diamonds and sometimes all I see are the red/white hexagons. I like seeing the diamonds better. It is from Stack 'n Whackier by Bethany Reynolds.

I had three more floral hexagons left (I was playing with the idea of making the quilt bigger) so I impulsively made a table runner. It went together really fast.

I even basted it and it is ready to quilt. We can always use another table runner huh?

Until next time...

It is amazing how someone who is anonymous will act, isn't it...

I gave up that ability a LONG time ago.

I like this, but saw the argyle pattern before I saw the SnW. For what that's worth.
