Part 1 –

This is what I have been up to. I started quilting again this year, but so far, I have only made two table runners (does not look promising for another before the end of the year). This is the first one. I have not quilted in quite a while, so I was out of practice, to say the least, but I like this one because of the colors and the flowers. I think I might add some more stitching to it. When I sat down to design this, I wanted it to be a block style that had an eye-catching effect. I like it but I think I want to use this same design on some other material to see how it works. (Update:  dimensions-36″ x 12.5″)

Now, this is the second table runner I did. I wanted to make something for Christmas –meaning that I was not making this for myself, and it was a lot more involved. I love these colors (though they do not come through as well as in real life)! When it was finished, I discovered that it does not have to be used exclusively at Christmastime. It reminds me of home where we had so many evergreen trees. Because bright red and green were not used I think I can use it any time of the year. I fell in love with this one and want to keep it and use it a bit before passing it down to one of the kids. (Update:  dimensions-34″ x 14″)

I also made a wall hanging with a flower design (Update:  dimensions-10″ square). I used some of the ribbon roses I made some months ago. They really come in handy to give it that extra dimension. There is more to come…

Happy Gardening!
