During my assessment of my fabric situation last week I found a project that needed doing asap. I had a charm pack of Moda's "Saltbox Harvest" - a line of fabric that looks like it was inspired by one of my Mom's holiday sweaters. :) When I bought the charm pack, the quilt shop wasn't carrying much of the yardage of that line, so I bought background, back, and binding of Sandy Gervais's "Awesome." Then I made it into a double wedding ring table runner:
While I was working on it, I thought it wasn't turning out the way I'd hoped. Too literal or something - not "me." (Hey, does that mean I have that precious "aesthetic" the kids on Project Runway are always talking about?) But then I came into my sewing room to work on it and it was draped over my chair looking SO DANG CUTE. Maybe I'm just a heartbeat away from wearing a holiday sweater... and rocking it.
I want to keep this next one. This works on my table. It works with my Thanksgiving plans. I had Dixie Anderson do the quilting in the rings with her long arm machine, then I did all the quilting in the ditch myself (less money). So, another double wedding ring with 3 Sisters "Park Avenue" fabrics - this one is a square.
Besides making this one square instead of rectangle, I also switched the binding fabric for the trim fabric. I like this look better - the red stripe is one of the wovens from the Park Avenue line.
Again, the back is cool enough on it's own:
One last view...
Let's go see what everyone else was up to this week at Amy's blog. :)
