Happy Sunday everyone!
It’s been a very busy couple of weeks in this neck of the woods. I’ve been working hard to keep up with my target of one stripe per day on the crocheted ripple blanket and I’m only just managing. I’ve also been stitching the 1st stage of Cirque des Cercles and I’ll be ready to post about that on my other blog next weekend.
Finally, I’ve been busy designing and making this table runner for my daughter to take to India as a gift.
I had originally planned to have pointy ends but then as I laid out the blocks to be sewn together, I quite liked the idea of framing the octagons.
Here it is just before quilting. I love these greeny blues The background is actually ivory cream but it looks white in the photos.
The quilting up close.
Finally, the back and the label. I almost forgot about the label!!
My daughter took it to India on Friday and it will be gifted when she meets up with Friends Across the Sea. I hope they like it Maybe she will send me a photo of it in situ when she hands it over. If she does, I’ll add it to the end of this post. It would be lovely to see it in the Indian sunshine.
I hope you are having a wonderful crafty weekend!
