Whooping It Up Friday


I am Whooping it up as I have my 'Catalicious' a flimsy.  I actually added another row of squares to the top and bottom after this photo.  I will add a final muslin border  - then this will be ready to sandwich to be ready for hand quilting - BUT that is for next month.




















I have no idea why my photos load blurry as they are fine on the camera and on my album site - but when I load them to a post they blur.  I just love the three 'ladies'  blocks so had to show them.



















And I wanted to show the table runners that I started during the Christmas QAL weekend.  This one used the little bit of Hoffman Challenge fabrics and the backing is a Hoffman.  These are all lovely metalic fabrics and I used a metalic gold on top and a black on the back.




















And those cute Nancy Halvorsen panel parts that went into this runner.  I had this pretty Benartex poinsettia print for the back.  I like when you can use both sides of a runner for a change of decor.  And both runners used up some 
'quilt cut-off' lengths of batting, too.

Yes, my kitties do that to my table clothe - stretch and claw for some attention.  That's why I use flannel backed plastic instead of nice fabric clothes.  I have a new one which I plan to put on this weekend - we shall see how long that lasts!


 And there was such interest in that bag of selvedges - not to worry as I am already starting to fill it back up.  Yes, I go thru a lot of fabric!  So maybe by November this will be ready for another give away.

I will be linking up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict for Whoop Whoop Friday.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  6. I love the colors in the cats quilt, so bright and happy and the Christmas is so pretty, I like the traditional colors and pictures.
    Does the blur only happen when you zoom in for close ups? Your other pictures are perfect. I know it's difficult to experiment since you need to post to the blog, but next time try taking a step back and zoom from there.

  13. Oh Sharon! Those Catalicious blocks turned into a wonderful quilt!!! What a nice quilt! And how great that you have runners completed, all ready for the Christmas season! I never thought I would care about selvedges, but I went to a class yesterday to learn how to cover a box with selvedges - and it is just adorable! I'll be sharing it on the blog soon (I still have to finish the top binding before I can show it :*))
