Catching the Wave


I saw this on Oh, Fransson’s! blog and Monica at Happy Zombie did it here, so I  had to give it a try.  I printed out the tutorial and studied it for a few days then she came up with a new idea using my dresden ruler so I was on board.  I started just playing and when I laid it out on my table and it fit for an idea I had a while back.  I had thought of running 2 table runners across the table to double as 4 placemats and protection for the center of the table.  Funny thing is the fabric I chose also went perfect with some dishes I have.  Now I need to make another one and get them both quilted.  She squared hers up, but I am thinking I will leave them wavy on the sides and bind with the white fabric.

IMG_2119 I also completed a little wall hanging for my laundry room.  These little washday bunnies were inspired from a Tilda book called Crafting Springtime Gifts.  I changed their dresses and had some fun with the quilting.  I don’t know if it shows, but I quilted a shirt, pants, sock and a towel on the clothesline and grass and flowers on the ground.  I guess if I were braver I would have used colored thread.  This was a really fun project now I have to finish some things in the laundry room so that I can hang it up.

Guess all this rain is good for giving me some sewing time!
