A little quilting & fun with EQ

I've been busy quilting away on my spiderweb mats, and since I've made a few of them lately, this is my favourite way to quilt them right now. Half feathers with a shadow. The centre section is too small, so I just do arcs in there. Looks like I just got bored quilting and wandered off sometime last night :-)


And while I was waiting for Amy to get home last night, I thought I'd draw up a little something I'd like to make for the dining table. A nice big fat runner. This block is called 'Lady of the Lake'. Sounds a little 'Anne of Green Gables' to me :-) The blocks will be 12", and I'll need to make 14 of them. Seems like I'm always drawing things up in shades of green lately - I know it goes so well in my home ... but blue is my favourite colour!


If I'm a really good girl, maybe I'll get this runner made up before I return to work on the 18th January? Let's see how much I get distracted by other things ...

I love your spider web mats. Looks like a good plan for a table runner. I'm amazed at how much you accomplish!

Your Spiderwebs look great. Like the quilting. Thanks so much for the directions. I definitely want to make some for my round table.

I love the placemats and have been shopping for a kaleidoscope ruler so I can try making them. Do you machine quilt them on a long-arm?

I love the half feathers! I was quilting my hexagon candle mats at the last minute, so they just got some swirly stippling. I'll try the feathers next time!
