Mitres Mastered!

After a slight delay waiting on more Kona Deep Violet, I've managed to get my Brit Bee '13 (part 1) quilt top completed.

I'm calling this one Vintage Purple!  Original eh?

The mitred corners didn't turn out to be as tricky as I was expecting - phew!

So this one now needs a pieced back, made up with the mini blocks I received and siggys.

And after another nifty bit of fabric shopping, I got the rest of what I needed to finish this Marmalade Half Hexie Table runner.

I'll explain more about this future class project when I get it finished. It is currently sitting on a growing pile of quilt tops needing basting!  Knee pads at the ready!

  6. wonderful projects, Judith. Both the quilt and the runner are so pretty. I'm also very bad at naming my quilts - my daughters always have fun talking about my "lame" quilt names.

  16. I have a pile of flimsy tops ready for basting too. Problem is I love making tops, but the basting and quilting is kind of a drag for me. Can't afford to send them all out to a long armer!
