Sewful Sunday

After all the rushing and bustle that accompanies a holiday, I am so thankful I got a chance to do some sewing today.  It's tricky this time of year to post about what I'm working on, as I'm not quite sure who reads this blog.  I know I can't post about Kimberly's present!

Today I finished hand sewing the binding down on this frosty pillow for "B".  I'm very pleased with how this turned out as it was my first attempt at applique.  I also like the FMQ and the covered zipper in the back.

I started this table runner/center piece for "J".  My first curves!  I borrowed used Kimberly's quick curves template and used the tutorial for 'Fun Poinsettias' from Sew Kind of Wonderful.  I am going to add some kind of borders and quilt with metallic thread :)

And I made 2 churn dash blocks for Audrey at Hot Pink Quilts.  First churn dash blocks though I have been thinking about making some for a long time since I love HST (half square triangles) so much.  These went together fast since they are so big! They will be 15" finished

I also completed the quilting on the Pixelated Heart quilt on the Innova yesterday.  I have to work on the binding next.
