It’s already beyond the midpoint of October and I haven’t even mentioned my October UFO project for this month! Time is really starting to tick around here.
I’m working on a table runner that I started last Fall. I almost forgot it existed! There’s a drawer in my sewing room that has kits and projects that I started or that I want to start, and I should be looking in that drawer more often. This table runner is going to be finished just in time for Thanksgiving. I think I’ll call it Pumpkin Spice.
I had some American Made Brand solids that I wanted to use, so I came up with this warm, gradated pattern. It’s a little bright now that I see it with fresh eyes, but someone in my family might like it. I do like the splash of colors against the neutral tan fabric.
I already had a backing ready to go, so now I’m on to the basting and quilting stage. I think straight lines on the sides of each seam will be it for quilting; maybe some variegated thread to add interest.
October Prize Package
The prize packages for this month will include a book on free motion quilting, a charm pack of Juniper Berry from Moda, a spool of Magnifico thread from Superior Threads, a pattern and a prepaid subscription to The Quilt Show.
I hope you’ve got a UFO project that you’re working on this month. The link up will take place on October 31st. You’ve got 10 more days to get it finished!
