First Project of 2008

What is a girl to do when her dear friend Anne Ida sends her some fabric for her birthday?? Well of course at first u "play" with it and admire it........then u cut!!!!

Arent those greens amazing??? And that cream background fabric is adorable!! You cant tell from the picture but the border fabric is different to the fabric used in the blocks. All i added was the blue and gold Moda fabrics. Thnx again sweetie!!!

I chose the Weathervane blocks, basically cause the template was still on my cutting table and i quilted it with an all over meander (just to keep in practise!!!) Looks great against the Jasmine....so what did i make it for???

From late November till the end of March we live in our patio. Its a great, cool place to eat, read, stitch, play games or entertain!!! Its where i fill my pots and window boxes with pretty flowers all year round and where we can relax watching the birds in the bird bath, whilst listening to the gentle sounds of the wind chimes. Sitting there, long enough, made me realise, we need a tablerunner:

I think it works well.....exactly what was missing!!! Now what about that wooden bench ??? lol

Speaking of that gorgeous green, remember these??:


Just weeks ago, these were so tiny.......now there r ready for Apple Crumble, eaten outdoors of course with our new tablerunner!!!

I love that shade of light green! Gorgeous table runner!

Terrific runner Rose, but what made me giggle was seeing your pepper mill on the table. Reminded me of the one I used to have.... silly huh...

Anne Ida said...

The table runner is perfect, sweetie! You know how much I love the Weathervane block, right? The Moda fabrics is a great compliment to those greens :o) Enjoy your time on the patio!

Great way to start out the new year. Very pretty table runner. I wish we could be in an outside family room now. We have approximately 10 inches of snow on the ground.

Green is my favorite color - any kind of green - so this is just the perfect runner, I think. I like the block, too. Yummy apples soon!

I've given you the Make My Day Award from my quilting blog. (Still working on my post!)

Oh well I can dream.
