Happy Dancing!

Hi everyone, I’m happy dancing today because I have a finished table runner to share.

This one is extra special as it will be flying across the ocean to America on Thursday with my daughter. She will be staying with her friend’s family for Thanksgiving and we thought it might be nice for her to take along a gift that was made in England.

Apparently, the family have a white wicker dining table which has a glass top and they use blue crockery. So I’ve used different blue solids with crisp white cotton. I hope they like it.

Here are some close up photos of the quilting…

I’ve densely quilted the runner so that it lies nice and flat. Too much “loft” might make vases etc. topple over. It measures 48 x 18 inches. I’ve also sewn a personalised label to the back.

I’m off to sew more of the blackwork which you can see on my other blog. Click here if you want to take a look.

I hope you are all having a lovely crafty weekend. Thank you so much for all of your lovely comments and emails. I really appreciate them all Smile

Pinwheels in pink!

Happy Monday everyone!

It’s time to show you my latest finish. I made the quilt top a few weeks ago when I made my bags. I split the charm pack called Dogwood Trail by Moda into blues and pinks because I didn’t like them together. The blues plus a few scraps were made into my blue bag and the pink ones plus some white and pink solids were used to make this quilt.

I hope you like it 🙂
