Since I've been on medical leave I've watched so much daytime TV I could write a novel on how boring it can be. The worst days are when there is no Red Sox baseball or Celtics basketball or Tiger Woods playing golf. That's where I found myself last night. No Boston sports, no Tiger Woods and I don't watch any Thursday night network shows. Even though I'm not an evening machine sewer I found myself heading back into my studio last night to sew. I looked through my PDF patterns to find one that would be quick to make. I found the Charm Street Runner from Prairie Point Junction.
I used a packet of Northcott charms and some hot pink fabric I had in my stash. The rows are put together, then you make a quilt sandwich of the backing and batting, then sew the rows together onto the sandwich. Quilting is done! I love, love, love this method. I can visualize using this method when stitcheries are in the design. I'm not a fan of quilting around stitcheries. I think the quilting stitches take away from the stitcheries.
I'm going to send this to Mom. I haven't sent her a Mother's Day gift yet and this will cheer her up.
Until next time - happy stitching!
