Frivolous Friday

We have WiP Wednesday so I thought Frivolous Friday was a good idea. Don't know why, it just sounds good. Soooo - quoi de neuf? I've found another little girl to do a quilt for - 3 years old - just waiting for the ok from her father. The Sunburst Strings are driving me demented. Do you ever get that feeling when you sew and sew but it doesn't get any bigger? I feel as if I've been sewing for months and months. Wednesday night I made a decision. This is as big as it gets and I just ain't doing any more. I have 4 more quarter blocks to make up, then I shall baste and back it and turn it into a rather wide and long table runner. That's the lovely fabric that Pippa gave me which will be the binding. Alex and I planned Rachel's quilt yesterday evening. A few more tweaks and then I can start sashing it. Have added a site feed to this blog for Quilts 4 Leukaemia so you can keep an eye on what is going on over there, rather than hopping from this one to that. Oh forgot to say - look what the postman delivered on Wednesday. All the way from Florida and all Joann remnants. Amy - you are brilliant.

Oh yes Clare I know that sewing all night and getting nowhere feeling! But your sunburst blocks look fab and it will make such a lovely table runner. I do love that fabric you're using for the binding!

And I wish the postie bought me parcels as good as yours!

Sometimes downsizing is the best option. It will make a very nice table runner.

What a good idea, Clare...this quilt will be wonderful as a table runner, and the binding fabric is really perfect, isn't it? Really going to be a lovely piece...

I think you are making a wonderful table tunner! The colors are terrific.

I love getting pacakges in the mail. This week should bring quite a few since I went on a book buying bings on e-bay last weekend.

I hope every piece lends itself to your talents -- some weren't really quilting material, but they were *interesting* so I sent them along!
