Getting ready for a little sewing

The fabric for my daughter's twin-bed quilt arrived yesterday--I'm going to do a pinwheel quilt, using charm packs of Tweet Tweet and white fabric. I'm looking forward to it, however long it takes me! (It's a good thing she's not quite ready for a twin bed yet, eh?)

But first: I've been enjoying doing some smaller projects to keep my quilting momentum while I wait for Dad's flannel quilt to get back from the long-arm quilter's. My very first charm pack experience was a Christmasy tablerunner:

And the goal this weekend: Quilting and binding this 'everyday' Fandango tablerunner--it will look great in our family room:

  1. Lovely tablerunners. The Fandango fabric is gorgeous. My next project is a table runner too -- a Halloween one, but very simple, just some strips of fabric. I like the diagonal quilting you did on the first tablerunner. It is very effective.
