Hello friends! I have been working on a new project while I complete my economy blocks. A reversible table runner with one side for Easter and the other for any patriotic holiday.
Everything I am sharing with you now, I completed on Friday last week and planned to share it with you earlier. However, I have somehow caught a nasty cold. My kiddos and husband have been sick several times throughout the winter season and I guess it finally caught up with me.
So there has been no sewing happening around here once I completed both sides of the table runner. I am also waaayyy behind on my house chores which I prefer to spread out over the week, but this time it looks like I am going to have to spend a couple of days to catch up.
I love the little chicks and the yellow ribbon flower by Denyse Schmidt. The latter is probably my favorite print. I wish she would release a whole collection of ribbon flowers in all different colors. Just like Lizzy House did with her Pearl Bracelets. That would be so wonderful! A girl can dream right?
The second side is patriotic and for some reason my reds are looking more coral in these pictures. The deeper reds are almost burgundy. I tried to get the reds to show true, but the pictures did not want to cooperate. I am hoping I will figure it out before I show you the completed table runner.
I have made this table runner two other times and this version is a little different. Usually on this side, the pattern creates a chevron print. This time I arranged the colors to make the flag design, but the arrangement of triangles hasn't changed.
Here are the other two that I have completed...
Side 1 - Halloween/Side 2 - Flea Market Fancy
Side 1 - Amy Butler's Lark/Side 2 - Christmas
I hope you have a wonderful week. Hopefully I feel better soon and will have more to share with you in a couple of days.
