Saltwater Mini

 I spent the afternoon connecting all the pieces to the table runner that matches the mini.

 I also got the mini sandwiched and ready for quilting.

 I used the bigger blocks for the ends and just used some squares for the middle of the table runner. I have a big tray that will sit in the middle of it anyway and I am really over making those fancy little blocks.

 I turned the first corner of the Dresden. I was dreading it but the edge quilting has actually been fun to do.

I know you think I am crazy but I am sad that I only have two more blocks to rip out of Daddio's Thangles quilt. It's the best thing for listening to a good book. Nothing to think about, just rip, rip, rip and then pick, pick, pick out all those loose threads. It's a mess when you're done but it's a good mess.


  1. Beautiful quilts. I really like how the mini is turning out and the blocks in the center of the runner were a great idea. When I saw the lint roller on Daddio’s quilt I thought it was a cardboard toilet paper roll and couldn’t figure out why it was there. Ha!!!

  2. Beautiful work. Your ability to cut and sew straight never fails to amaze me!

  3. Awww. Im getting into the audio thing in a big way!!! Hope Daddio is bringing you good memories

  4. The table runner and mini are wonderful. I completely understand your reluctance to making more of the blocks.

  5. Such cheerful colors in all the fabrics. Love your edge quilting - really pretty.

  6. Really nice progress on all the quilts; the minis pattern is very interesting and I like the colors! I'm glad the picking out has been therapeutic!
