Hand Stitching: This party's winding to a close as the binding is about 1/3 down.
Didn't she do a STUNNING job? I love so much how she took a very linear quilt and made it so incredibly organic. Can't wait for it's Finish Report!
FMQ: Need something here to fill in the gap between gifts. (And something other than blue and white to look at!) Going to pin this Christmas lovely now so it doesn't get abducted by aliens. I think I'll go with some of the Tuscany Wool in my stash and see how it works with the corduroy pinwale backing. . .
Piecing: Run Kitty, Run! is finally ready for piecing. Y'all know how much longer it takes to cut out a quilt when you use scraps??? I don't cut my scraps all up Bonnie Hunter style because I don't know yet what each one will be used for. Don't get me wrong - I find her very inspirational and will make several of her designs when I get the UFOs under better control. But I have several projects I want to do in the future that need pieces that will not be assembly-line style needing uniformly sized strips.
I think this new gift project is going to be super fun, with whimsical quilting plans, and I'm glad I had enough scraps for each color zone to get all the pieces. She needs this quilt ASAP for some heart-lifting, and I don't want to wait months and months until I'm allowed to buy more fabric.
