It was a magnificent sample of Trudi's quilting skills as we were trying to decide on the quilting pattern for Stargazing. Well, I finished her off recently with a cute little pink binding. I struggled to find a binding that matched the blue dots or the green star points, but then I finally realized I had the perfect fabric!
I used the little pink strips left from the Stargazing back after squaring it. I now have the happiest, most intricately quilted table runner I have ever seen. It's all washed, dried and crinkly now. I couldn't be happier. Thank you, Trudi! (PS - I'm so sorry the photos are horrid. Just as I went outside to take the photos the rain started. So sorry for the stinky inside shots!)
In other news, I received the nicest note from lovely Jerri, the Wool Shop Junkie, asking for more information on the Community Quilt about the quilt and its pattern, I tossed a few of the Community Quilt 2 inch squares into the post for her to start her own. That's the spirit of the quilt, after all.
And what arrived in the post as a surprise thank you gift? This cuteness!
How much do I love that card? Adorable. There was also a super nice note, but I won't share that with you. And this! This little pin cushion!
Oh my goodness I love it. Jerri made this out of wool scraps wound in a circle and then she decorated the edges with flowers and beads. How fantastic is that? Jerri, thank you. You made my day!
