Anina. I don't think she'll mind...I hope she takes it as a compliment. I loved hers, pumped her for information, then came up with this table runner. I love it. It was very fun to machine quilt, doing a different 'design' in each strip. While suffering with the flu last week, the B man had to tolerate the hum of the machine and my exclamations of glee after every little strip-quilt-stint in the middle of the afternoon. I like to click on the picture to see the detail and I recommend it to you because my picture taking skillz are lacking.
Jacquie's very pretty runner and now don't love mine as much! Whew, I just can't keep up! I would like to have a table runner for every season or holiday, well... I already do ~ almost...moderation in all things. I used orange and green thread, but wasn't real brave to do it on the ivory colored strips, now I wish I would have. I used a gorgeous fabric on the back (forgot to photo it) that hides the quilting.
Now, can you notice?... this front door ditty is complete with found buttons and hanging apple tree branch? The buttons were lost in that little baggie for 2 months in my hmmm...where else, but my... SEWING ROOM! All this red, white and blue fluff around here is looking like I'm either 2 months late OR 10 months early!!! I'll take the later...
