Saturday

Yesterday, at the LQS' BOM morning, we saw Marti Young's trunk show of her original-design quilts. There was a very nice table runner, for which unfortunately, no pattern is available. I drew as much of it as I could remember:

It has more vining and flowers. And the urns are shaped differently.

Got some blocks completed, two for Lori Smith's Folk Art Applique and one for the LQS BOM (to Nancy, Hi, the fabrics are a mix of batik and some gorgeous hand-dyed cotton that went on sale for 40% off at the LQS; the hand-dyes are pretty much a solid tone but are the most heavenly colors and the cotton they used is very delectable, I've been wondering what it is exactly because it is very very cool :-) ).




The LQS pattern this month is Bow Tie, but I didn't feel like making that, so made this star block instead with the kit fabric.

I think you can "replicate" a nice runner from your sketch.

Was it a "penny" quilt - the edging makes me wonder...

Oh, I love the table runner design! Even if yours doesn't look the same it's still wonderful. I hope you make it so we can see it in all it's fabric glory!

You sound like me, I can do a mean quick drawing from memory if I really like something well enough!! Great idea!

Cheers to you for rebeling and making your darling star block instead of a bow tie! ;-)

Love the two folk art blocks that you have already stitched. Luscious fabrics!
