Lois made this striking table runner for her daughter as part of her birthday present. Lois asked for some custom quilting. Thank you Lois, I'm sure your daughter will be delighted!
Next is a quilt hug Cat made for her daughters singing teacher. Cat supplied a vintage sheet for the backing.
Measuring 53" x 78" it makes for a nice hugging/cuddling size. I experimented with the plump swirls and added a few feather plumes and hearts.
Here I am attaching the binding, you can see the lovely retro sheet........................
Thanks Cat for letting me be part of this precious gift of love and caring.
Last but not least for today's post I am linking up with Linda and Julie's "Sew-Stitch-Snap-Share"
Juliet from Tartankiwi design this wonderful
Once I had my four critters made "Farnley" - the fawn "Henry" - the hedgehog "Ollie" - the otter and "Kingi' - the kingfisher I then dithered about what to do with them? My husband said what about a table runner? Now this comes from a husband that doesn't like anything on our dinning room table! I let his idea jingle around for a few days then went with it, I did add a hanging sleeve so it can be hung on the wall if the mood strikes!
I have quilted several of Juliet's quilts for her so knew all about the fiddly ditch stitch in front me as I came to execute the quilting. I then set about quilting the background with a wood grain effect.
I used a large selection of fabrics, but my two main fabrics were the lovely olive green which is a Alison Glass print and the abstract teal print by Joel Dewberry.
Then a flange binding...........finished! I keep saying how much I love this table runner/ wall hanging, so does my husband. Thanks again Juliet for the distraction :-)
