Quilting Anyone?


Well, it's about time isn't it? I haven't posted lately. Here's a picture (and not a very good one) of a table runner I made. The pattern is from the book 'Dining at the Lodge' by Helen Thorn. You can see it at www.pinetreelodge.com. Sorry ... I thought I was figuring this blog thing out. I kept getting an error when I tried to add a link here. I'll keep working at that. Anyway, the quilt book has cute patterns for placemats, tablerunners and small tablecloths. The directions are detailed and pretty easy to follow.
Ok, who out there is good at working on one project at a time? Do you start and complete a project before you start another one? I don't!
I often think that if I focused on one projectc at a time, I might actually get a few things done and get to be pretty good at something. But, that's not me. I like a lot of different crafts and I like planning them and working on them all at different times. Sometimes I focus on one and sometimes I work on several different things at once. It's really all about the fun of it, so I guess it really doesn't matter what I do when. These past few months I've been crocheting, sewing, quilting and knitting a little bit. So, I'll post about whatever I do and either confuse or surprise you all! Happy Friday everyone!

HI :D I love your runner! Quilting is on my list of things to learn when I get "caught up" on my many crochet projects!! I also have the bad habbit of starting new projects before the old ones are done, and I have thought the same thing.. maybe I would get more done if I had less started.. hahahah

Hey, I agree. You can't just have one project going because you would tend to get bored with it. Or at least that's what I tell myself. I have never tried Quilting and would like to once I get this knitting stuff in my brain. :)

Very nice... I keep buying fat quarters (sp?) telling myself I'm going to make a blanket and then become overwhelmed about the size and just haven't done anything... but you have given me hope... I never thought about placemats or table runners... Thanks.
