Squirrels are cute, entertaining, creative, and fast! It's no wonder they're all over my sewing room (and my house for that matter!), as well as in the yard.
I sometimes think most of my quilting projects start out as squirrels. I see something on a blog, and I think, "I want to try that!" and off I go. That's how this project got started - this tutorial on The Joyful Quilter blog for Magic Star blocks and a fabric pull.
That lead to these blocks -
and this week, a finished tablerunner!
A leftover chunk of this colorful cat fabric made the perfect backing.
These guys make me smile!
I enjoyed chasing this squirrel!
And, while not necessarily a squirrelly project, I also just "had to" trace a new embroidery design to work on this week. I chose Gail Pan's "Bee Brave," which she is offering free on her website right now. gailpandesigns.com
I'm making this for my sister, whose daughter is a nurse working with Covid patients right now - and it's hard for her not to worry. When the embroidery is done, I'll finish into a small mug rug or mat to give my sister.
