I've been working on these runners.
I love how they turned out so much that I had to share some pictures with you.
I just love how perfect it looks on my dining room table but...
It's not my runner.
I made both of these for a very sweet customer :-). The long runner was made to match a shorter one. I think I did a pretty good job matching the colors and style of stitching.
The runners were made using a pattern by Ginger Sanchez. This runner I made is longer than the pattern so I just stretched the pattern a little bit and added more pears and leaves. I followed the colors used in the smaller runner. The runner looks so different then the pattern when using a light background and red pears.
I made this bird runner to go in the same room.
This is my own design and I used the same wools as the long runner.
I so want to make this with a blue bird and red accents for an Americana look.
Maybe make the bird into a cardinal standing on a holly branch...so many ideas so little time.
I think I'll spend the evening working on some hexies. I'm not sure what I'm making but I'll just keep adding on.
Remember this quilt?
I bought the kit at the quilt show, its a Primitive Gatherings pattern.
I was working on it last night but I couldn't finish the wool appliqué because I need to get some gold valdani thread. Only 6 leaves away from preparing this puppy to quilt.
