July's first finish
On track! (Sort of. It is the 8th today!) I finished the breath of Avignon table runner today. I started out this morning by practicing my free motion quilting on a practice sandwich. Off topic - Every morning I have some kid or other telling me about the dreams they had last night. They are always pretty spectacular. Some of them dream about pokemon, others run the world. (We have a wide range of personalities here!) When they are done telling me about their dreams they always ask me about my dreams. I think, but nothing comes to me, so I tell them that I don't actually dream. Not sure if I can never think of what I dream about or if I don't think my dreams are spectacular enough to share..... So, back to the free motion quilting practice. As I practiced I realised that free motion quilting is what I dream about. Only, I'm heaps better at it in my dreams than I was this morning. Disappointing! I had been dreaming about quilting some butterflies onto the table runner. So I practiced butterflies. They were awful!!! I practiced some flowers instead and that's what went on to the table runner. And now it is finished.
On to the next table runner I say! I have been working on the French General table runner too. I put a narrow red border on it because I like red and because so many of you suggested that it needed some more red on it. So far I like it. I have one more border to put on and then I will just need to quilt it. Tomorrow I think.
