Karen's Table Runner
A couple of years ago my SIL saw the
table runner I put together (with help from several CQ friends) for my
daughter Samantha @ Three Men and a Lady
and wanted one, too.
So I began collecting fabrics and deciding on
Blossoms & Butterflies by This & That's Sherry Falls
Then everything sat and waited its turn
to come to life.
I liked this patten because of its shape.
Karen is into blues, so this was fun to do
because blue is not a color I normally work in,
and I love being stretched, creatively.
The flowers are appliqued, I like
to do raw edge, putting a buttonhole/blanket stitch on by hand.
I used Sassa Lynne thread for this.
Now I have to tell you that I was in a rush to do this
because I was going to see Karen in a week, so put everything
else aside and made this up, SOOOO, I forgot
to take finish pictures. DUH.
Maybe Karen will take some for me and I can show you the finished piece in its new home.
The flower also has 4 pink french knots in the center, on the finished piece.
A close up of the center blocks. I quilted it with
stitch in the ditch, and an outline of the flowers.
2 baby quilts...........
Still working on my Ruffled Roses BOM and
Samantha's Turquoise and Brown Quilt.
With a Hugs quilt on the Longarm
So stay tuned for more quilt creations.
