Three for Tea
Three for Tea, a "Perkins Dry Goods" pattern
A Moda Fig Tree jelly roll.
I bet you are tired of hearing about this jelly roll, but I am surprised how far it went.
I did finish the binding yesterday while at the hospital with my friend Marge.
This was my first attempt at a scalloped border, it was surprisingly easy. I just needed to cut the binding on the bias, and when ready to stitch down it just rolled into place. I see more scalloped borders in my future. I think it really adds a finishing touch. So often the borders are so plain.
This morning I whipped up this little table runner out of the leftovers. Part of "Three for Tea pattern. It still needs binding, that will get done after I return from my water aerobics. I am really reluctant to go this morning as the temperature has dropped over night to 14. But the sun is shinning and it looks like a beautiful day. I'm afraid if I let the weather stop me I would be able to find an excuse everyday.
