this is the 2nd pinwheel puzzle runner i made and now it's done as well. the pattern does call for that border but i much prefer the one made without. the points of the neutral pinwheels get lost, but i think it's more pleasing to the eye that way. i've already started quilting the next piece, the cheddar and blue bow ties. **** up and dressed already, progress from yesterday. few errands for today and then back to sewing. plus, the swaps must be readied for mailing. still olympic watching....love that synchronized swimming! **** a friend introduced me to a new quilty website and already this morning i've been drooling over yet more civil war fabrics but, more important, got some ideas to use up the stash i already have. taking 3 machine projects to lancaster, a small project that is ready to go and my civil war diary papers are in a folder and ready too. will also be taking a handwork project, probably the hawaiian or maybe a quilting project. if i could stay a month, could probably get that dang hawaiian all done.
