A better day

It sure felt good to have no sign of a headache yesterday. I got all of the setting triangles sewn onto Fractured Pansies 2. I did have to piece the 4 corner triangles but I don't think it shows very much. Since the purple print is a sateen it ravels like crazy so I need to get this one basted soon. I also got the binding done on the one I posted on Sunday. Here you can see the 2 different binding fabrics. On the top layer both of them are there. One is the same as the border fabric and the other has random lines going in all different directions. I doubt anyone would even notice the binding at a first glance.
I also sewed together the 3 blocks I showed a couple weeks ago and put a border around them for a good sized table runner.
It sounds like we have a couple more cold days and then the warm up to the mid 60's for the weekend. I still haven't done any clean up of my gardens. I hired my grandson to bring in my hose carts, trim my spirea bushes (and clean up the mess) and put on 3 storm windows late last week. Now I need to get out there and cut down all of the asters so I don't have a hundred volunteer plants next year.

Your strips that sizzle is gorgeous. I love the setting triangles, they really set off the rest. Your runner is cute too.

That purple border really transforms that quilt -- quite spectacular.

It isn't easy to work with a head ache is it? I'm about the same way right now with trying to work with a neck/shoulder problem, I have to keep stopping to tell myself to relax the muscle and not to hold myself in one position.

I am so glad that you had enough fabric to finish the quilt. It looks stunning.

You have been busy with the colder weather. I love the table tunner for the fall. Such pretty colors!!!

Thank you for your information on how to make one of those lovely quilts.

Great table runner.

good to hear your head is better.

Even enlarging FP 2... I could not find where you pieced it. Stitched and pressed it looks great.

You are so right no one will ever notice the change on the binding. I think each of us are all our own worst critics.

Love the autumn table runner.

Glad you had enough fabric for the 'Fractured Pansies 2'. I can't see where you pieced the corners. It looks great! The binding is perfect and the table runner looks fantastic! What talent you have girl! Wonderful to see your work!
