To-Do #1

The Christmas in July blog hop starts today!  We will reveal the finished mantle/chest quilt tomorrow on our day of the hop.  I was so happy to have it finished!  Here’s what it looked like last week – stayed tuned for tomorrow’s update.  Today, in a separate post we shared a free mug rug pattern.  Check that out if you are interested.

To-Do #2

While I was ruminating about how to finish the mantle quilt, I worked on the table and island runners for William and Nicole.  Piecing went together really quickly and I decided to stick with the geometrical and linear lines using simple rectangle quilting.  The table runner is complete and the island runner will be finished up this week, as the bridal shower is on Sunday.  Phew!  I’ll share a picture of the bride-to-be with the gifts next week.  I can’t share them here before they are given away, but here’s the basic unfinished idea.

    I really like William and Nicole’s runner. That blue just sparks things up nicely.
