Last weekend I worked myself silly (as in making stupid mistakes) to meet two deadlines on Monday. But I DID IT! I finished two nearly identical table runners as thank you gifts for two very generous women, because the design spoke to me of Thanksgiving.
These were my Fruits and Veggies runners made with fabrics from the giveaway table at our quilt group meetings. My friends were both delighted with their gifts and also really loved the backing/binding, an African theme fabric. I quilted the panels in two diagonal crosses, simple but easy
So now I was able to relax and enjoy Thanksgiving. I hope you folks in the States all had a blessed day as well.
Now back to lime green. For my balloon block sashing I ordered some lovely lime blender, a remnant of 2.5 yards, from Jelly Roll Quilts, and it just arrived today, one of several purchases I'm expecting.
Meanwhile I have laid out a sample block of my first choice for RSC16 with these 2.5 inch squares.
I have wanted to do wonky stars for a long time and recently I saw my favorite version on Deb's blog at VT Quilter. I'm thinking of doing it in batiks, because their range of colors is so varied. There are a couple of other patterns I'm also considering. It's going to be an exciting year!
I link up with RSC15 at superscrappy.blogspot.com and Sew Cute Tuesday at blossomheartquilts.com. Please join me for some fun.
