Happy First Day of Summer!

It’s finished! This table runner turned out really great. The colors are the perfect accompaniments for summer. It’s big too, approximately 19″ x 44″. It makes quite a statement on a table.

I quilted it by stitching in the ditch with white thread. The stitches contrast with the backing fabric, which is a darker olive green. I love the way that the binding kind of blends in. I didn’t want it to stand out and take away from the fabrics. I will be listing this runner in my Etsy shop but not until I get back from my vacay.

I’m driving down to Albuquerque tomorrow to visit with my Grandma. Then on Saturday she and my Mom and I will be flying to Portland, Oregon to see my little sister and spend some fun “girl time” to celebrate my Grandma’s 80th birthday. It is going to be so much fun! I will try to check in and share some photos while I’m there. While I’m gone, I hope you all enjoy the first days of summer and get your craft on!! Hugs!

  1. Erica, the table runner is beautiful. Looks so nice with the flowers and your candlesticks. The colors are so bright and lovely. Are you taking orders? Thinking ahead for Christmas. Can’t wait to see you.
    Love
    Grandma
