What’s under my foot?
Another Blog Hop and I hope you are enjoying them as much as I am. This is the last one I am scheduled to participate in for a while.
Welcome to my stop on Hello Fall Blog Hop hosted by Carla at Creatin in the Sticks. It’s always a pleasure joining in her hops as she is so thorough and organized. Thank you Carla for another fun event.
A couple years ago my oldest sister gave me a yard of this batik fabric. The browns and gold are more rich than the photo shows. Anyway until now I had no idea what I would use it for.
This photo shows the colors more true. Seriously, I need to get a design wall hung.
In my Hobbs Batting scrap pile there was a piece large enough to double over and quilt this. I love the way it defines the design. The thread I am using was purchased from fellow IB ambassador Mary Mack Made Mine, clicking the link will take you to her Etsy shop. Until she told me I had no idea Aurifil made long arm quilting thread, it’s a yellow spool. This shade blends so well with my muslin background don’t you think?
There wasn’t enough of the batik for binding so I decided to try a flange binding again. The first time I made one it didn’t turn out so well but I was optimistic this time would be a success. It was.
Originally the runner was going on my dining table. Placemats and runners don’t fare well there as dh has a tenancy to throw them aside constantly. It was too big in both directions for a runner in my bay window but it was perfect for the cedar chest.

Today is a little different because normally I don’t repost work that was not made by the person who linked up. Quilting Gail shard this quilt made by a friends 13 yo daughter and I was so impressed with the skill of this first time quilt maker Christina that I just had to. Be sure to go to Gail’s site and leave a comment for Christina and read more about it. Hopefully she follows Gail and will see your kind words.
Vicki is my favorite runner maker, she always has such creative and adorable pieces and her gnomes are no different. Stop by Vicki’s Crafts and Quilting to see her collection.
