Checking another item off of my Winter Stitching List!
Using the directions from The Raspberry Rabbits,
I made this runner for on our dining room table.
Does anyone else spend a ridiculous amount
of time to choose fabrics for a project? The
"use what you've got" rule does make fabric
selection a little harder but I'm outta control.
I tear through my fabric with wild abandon.
Tasha loves this because she gets to sit back
and observe me behave worse than a kitten.
She gets very amused and looks at me like I'm
crazy. But she also watches with appreciation and
understanding. She loves fabric as much as I do.
It's been a while since I got to play with a
traditional block--and friendship stars are so fun!
I have to tell you, I'm really feeling motivated
to make about anything now!
I was a little hesitant to use such similar colors
throughout the project but I was keeping in mind
that it would just serve to accent whatever would
be set on top of it--usually a floral arrangement.
(the inner border and binding are actually a dark brown--
just doesn't quite look that way in the picture)
This is project is easily made in one day.
Great for getting a quilt-fix if you just don't have
the time for getting into something major.
With my rusty-red dinnerware and the fall
centerpiece here, I think I acheived the look
I was working toward.
What a beautiful table runner. I've never seen that star before. Looks very cool. I love your cat too :) She looks like a good "helper".
That turned out great :o)
Want to come out an help me figure out how to do Mikki's quilt? (Yes, the same one I bought the fabric for a year ago!)
What a beautiful table runner.. thanks so much for sharing the link to the pattern. This is definitely going on my "must make" list. And yes, I agonize over fabric choices too!
I may have to hit you up for some lessons in a few years.. once all the kids are in school and I've taught myself how to sew :)
Great job - you are amazing.
