“River Stones” Table Runner

File 2018-01-10, 8 40 43 AMFound this “River Stones” pattern at Creative Festival about two years ago.

Valerie Miller  has gorgeous patterns for Table runners. In this particular pattern, she even has enough fabric that you piece together for the runner, that is left to make the pillow too. So fabric amount is for runner and pillow.File 2018-01-10, 8 41 35 AM

Okay I know mine is not exactly like she indicated to do this pattern. But that is me….always making projects my own…

Followed all instructions correctly to the point to where it tells you to lay outsides together and sew then together then flip it so outside is now facing out. Now you supposed to quilt it…okay my next one will be like that.

My changes for this one where:   I sandwiched all section together just like one does for a quilt and then quilted each section with a fun different pattern. Then sewed the binding on.

All the quilting I worked on my own with free motion designs I found on the net or tips from my co-workers. My Janome MC6500 machine is perfect for this and I love this free designing the most as I can be creative and have fun. Always learning new ways to quilt….

File 2018-01-10, 8 42 13 AMMost of this fabric I had in my stash from about 2-3 years ago when I sewed the             Log Cabin quilt. My Stash is getting used up…now I am going to finish the rest but I think instead of a pillow I’ll make some placemates….See you soon for that post…

Enjoy YOUR fabulous day…


My Hardanger Runner / Mein Hardanger Tischleufer

Just a few pictures of the Runner that I have finished, ohh…about four to six years ago.  Seeing it makes me want to start a new project using Hardanger Embroidery.  But I do like my knitting too.   As I  only have so much time available at the moment, perhaps in the Spring or Summer it will be a better time to start a new fun project.

Nur ein paar Fotos von meinem Runner denn ich etwa vor vier oder sechs Jahren fertig gestickt hatte.  Wenn ich dass so sehe reitzt es mich gerade wieder etwas anzufangen.  Doch habe ich im Moment wenig Zeit und mein Stricken is ja auch da.  So vieleicht im Fruehling oder Summer ist es besser um etwas Neues anzufange.
