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.
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!
