Sunday Sewing


Yesterday as I was looking for the perfect deep blue for the binding of my latest table runner I had a lightbulb moment. I wanted a solid, so I got out my tub of solids and I am pulling out all this beautiful coloured fabric and thinking why aren't I using it? What special project am I saving all this for? Why isn't my current project that special project? What am I waiting for?! So I pulled out all of my yellow, reds and oranges with the intention that they would be for the next table runner.


Then I sliced a bit off each. I even rummaged through my scrap tub and found a few orphaned jelly roll strips. Then I cut them into four groups, each roughly 12, 8, 5 or 3 inches


Then taking each group, started randomly sewing them together. Just had them piled up by my machine, grab one, sew, next! The ones above are from the 5 inch group. 


And here is the view taken earlier this week on my afternoon walk.

Star Progress



Table runner #1 is progressing nicely. Not what I imagined.... but I'm going with the flow. I like the stars on point rather that just placed next to each other.
