Doing the Funky Shamrock
Sounds like a 60's dance craze, doesn't it? Oh sorry -- guess I just dated myself!
Played with the Funky Shamrocks today and got the table runner top done. It was a fun project - quick and easy and satisfied my need to sew at the machine. I hope to machine quilt tomorrow. (And it's just hanging funny in the second photo -- it really is plumb and square (vbg)
Also finished my second Dear Jane block the other night -- I'm just doing these whenever I feel like it, and hand piecing them all -- just because I like to do handwork at night in front of the TV and the dog won't give up my lap to a hoop, so can't quilt. This one is called "One-Two Buckle My Shoe" (A-2). I've done the first two with muslin as the background, but I cut the pieces for A-3 this afternoon and decided to use a white on cream background from my stash for it. I like variety and figure I can pick up a FQ or two for backgrounds along the way, if I need them.
