Sew Thankful

I got to spend some time sewing this weekend.  I still didn't quilt that Rouenneries table runner but I did get this one finished up.  I designed this top last week as a prototype but decided the design didn't work for what I had intended.  Also, it was a lot harder to piece than I expected.  If I make it again I think I'll add white around the two end squares to make it float more. 

I really didn't want another table runner on my TBQ pile (there are at least 3 there already) so I forced myself to sit down and quilt this.  After playing around a while I came up with this loopy meander.

I used a silver metallic thread which was a bit of a pain to work with.  Even using a metallic needle it seemed to break fairly often.  I really like the result, it gives it a little more shine!

I also made some progress on my BMQG Kitchen Swap project.  Here are the fabrics I received from the fabulously funky Jen at A Quilting Jewel.  I've got the top together and just have to get it basted and quilted.  At least with this one I have a deadline so it can't linger in the TBQ pile: )


  1. Oh, I can't wait to see it!!! I'm giddy just thinking about it. You're work is always so awesome, so I'm really excited to see it.

  2. Really beautiful! I love the design!!
