I missed last weeks WIP Wednesday because I was in Washington DC for a conference for work. I don't get to travel a lot for work which seems a little strange since I work for an international charity but I always appreciate the opportunity. As luck would have it I am going to get to go on my first medical mission with my organization one month from today in Santa Cruz Bolivia and I couldn't be more excited.
As for sewing, I managed to finish my swap package for Sew Sew Modern 4. I made this little dwell table runner based on the pattern from Camille's second book. I had picked up a large scrap of Happy Go Lucky in the great fabric destash and it ended up fitting perfectly on the back. Of course now I need to get some more of that fabric because it's such a great print but I love how it worked out.
I'm still working on my free motion quilting skills and they do leave much to be desired but I think this actually turned out okay. Fun little fact I actually put a little heart in my FMQ. I did this on my the table topper I made my sister in law for Christmas as well. It's just a fun little touch and something that probably goes unnoticed but I like to think when they finally see it they will know that the piece was made with love.
I also managed to finish piecing my Lucy's Crab Shack quilt top. I can't wait to get this one to the quilter and get it back. Hopefully I'll get that done before the summer and can have it for lots of picnics. Not that I go on many picnic but I just might start if I had a fun summer quilt like this to take with me.
That's it for me this week-be sure to head over to Lee's and see what everyone else is up to.
