Shocker alert! I managed to stumble my way upstairs this week and find my sewing machine! After more than three weeks it was such a joy to get back to needle and thread. When last I showed anything fabric related I was starting the quilting on my coffee and chocolate table runner and ta da - it's a finish!
I love this one for it's color and playful fabrics and it looks great in my living room, (obviously, I won't be keeping it on the floor that's just for the photo shoot.)
I didn't fuss a lot with the quilting I just marked a simple cross hatch and some straight lines in the borders. I wanted to keep it clean and modern looking. My shell and pottery collection look wonderful on this runner.
I still had a tiny bit of scraps left and you know what that means, mug rugs of course.
I like to make mine a little bigger because I tend to be a messy gal and a little machine embroidery always jazzes things up don't ya think?
I'm linking up to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times. I always find so much inspiration there and you will too.
I saw this this morning on Linda's blog, Buzzing and Bumbling and I think it's so true. "Creativity cannot be used up. The more you use, the more you have!" If you haven't visited Buzzing and Bumbling yet I suggest you take yourself there right away Linda is so talented and I know you will love her creations.
Until next time remember,
