Summer Embroidery Finish!

Posted September 13th, 2013 by marcella and filed in quilting

This summer I joined Mollie’s Summer Embroidery Club and each Monday a little pattern appeared in my in-box. I tried hard to keep up each week and get my little bit of stitching done.

I did pretty well, but as usual for me, I had to depart from the pattern. Instead of sewing them together in rows I mixed them up with a charm pack of cute prints I had hanging out in my sewing room. The plan was to turn them into a little table runner.

So, although August ended a few weeks back, it took me a bit of time to sew it all together and fill in the gaps around the edge with some half-hexagons. I’m quite happy with it and have already found a good spot for it in our dining room.

I did a simple stitch and turn to finish it off and was quite proud of myself for stacking everything in the correct order – I often mess something up and then have to do a lot of unpicking. The only quilting is the stitching around the edge. I can’t decide if I want to do more or not but that can wait for someday if I’m ever inspired.

The autumn stitching club  just started so it’s not too late to join the fun for this season! I need to pick out some fabrics for this and get going before I’m too behind.

So nice to have a finish after months of puttering on odds and ends of projects!  I’m hooking up today with  TGIFF (thank goodness it’s finally finished) at QuiltMatters today. Go and check out lots of other finished projects!
