I've had a very week, and haven't completed any new projects, but Mr F has been decorating and the last thing I want on my beautiful fabrics is splashes of paint!! Anyway, yesterday afternoon was spent re-arranging furniture and such like, and I've put a bright and cheerful runner on my table. This pattern is called "Summer Picnic" by Laurie Shifrin and is featured in the book "Skinny Quilts and Tablerunners". I made this runner a few years ago, with a selection of bright batiks - some of which were bought on a holiday in Devon. That's a great way of remembering a holiday - to buy fabrics and make a super project! It's been quilted very simply with a variegated YLI quilting thread, "stitch-in-the-ditch" around the blocks and some gentle wavy lines in the border.
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
