Carolina Crossroads Curtain Call!
I made so many extra parts and pieces when I was piecing Bonnie's mystery quilt, I just had to make something with them. so...I made a table runner! and you will recognize some of the units from the CC mystery quilt. I used the "puss in the corner" nine patches for the corners, and the strip-pieced blocks for the bulk of the table runner. Kind of early for red, white and blue...but maybe not!! I hand quilted it.
I finished quilting my other strip pieced quilt, and did the worst binding job of my life!! I don't know what went wrong, but don't focus too closely on those corners!! hehehe, no quilt police here, I bet!
Well, I am off tomarrow to the hospital for surgery...I am pretty apprehensive, and would appreciate your kind thoughts and prayers during this time. Being on the nurse side of things, I know what can go wrong, and I pray it is all smooth as silk...or polished cotton quilt fabric!! Being the patient is kind of tough...but probably a great lesson for me!
Hope everyone has a wonderful day, and I will be eagerly waiting to get home from the hospital and read all the great things you all are up to!
