I have wanted to make a table runner for the kitchen table...mostly to distract the eye from our table. (Someday it WILL be replaced.) I saw a SUPER cute one my friend Alison made (click here to visit her AMAZING sewing blog and see her table runner that served as my inspiration! ps. scroll all the way down the page to see that table runner I'm talking about...SOOOO cute.) Thanks Alison for the tips and instructions. I would NEVER have attempted to quilt without it!
So, anyway, for a first timer, I was pretty pleased, but I definitely need some practice with the whole "free motion foot" quilting thing... YIKES. (don't look too close.)
These are a couple of shirts I put together for a friend and a sister who just had babies. I have to admit, coming up with girl stuff is MUCH easier. In fact, I think my favorite is the one with the orange flowers.
