DWM brown bag

My design wall is actually empty, which is a good thing. It means I got the red, white and blue Patriotic Patchwork put together. Now I just need to find a back and get it quilted. I'm sure I have  something for the back in my stash. This is my brown bag challenge. I was given the Hoffman fabric in the center of the stars. The hardest part of this challenge was that I didn't know my brown bag owner. She is new to the guild so I haven't really gotten a chance to know her likes or dislikes. I planned to put the focus fabric as another border but it seemed to take away from the table runner so I put it on the back. I hope she is pleased with it. My longarm quilter buddy Barbara let me try some custom quilting on it so it was also a learning experience for me.

Got a lot to do today and it is going to be another hot day here. Yesterday it hit 101 degrees with a forcasted 98 today. It was 77 when I started my walk this morning and 80 when I got back 53 minutes later. The 77 was at 7:15 a.m. . Slept late or would have gotten an earlier start.

Lucy was waiting for me when I got back.


  1. Your runner is gorgeous! I saw your temps and thought you must be in the south -- they looked a lot like our temps. Well, yeah! Howdy neighbor! I live just north of Huntsville! :)

    1. It is a small world, I retired from BellSouth in Huntsville and have friends that live in Merridianville and Hazelgreen just don't see them much now.

  2. Hot, hot, hot, is an understatement, don't u think?? This is melting weather.Everyone is staying inside. No relief in site this week. Hopefully, I'll get some sewing done. Haven't been very productive lately. U all try to stay cool.
    Sew on,

  3. This heat is hard on my flower gardens. Can't seem to give them enough water...Sewing in my air conditioned home is all I really want to do. And give much thanks for the electricity! Missed you all last Friday, but had fun with the QBEAS. See you Friday, hopefully indoors:)

    Teresa, I've not spilled the beans on all my starts. Those little monkey blocks finish at 5". I'm sure there will be one of the yet picked UFOs that will take me a month and then some. I thought Kamile was going to do that, but I managed to squeak it in. Thanks for leaving a comment. Sandi
