I hope to have time this week to quilt this table runner. I am excited to get this project finished and give it to my friend. Picking out fabrics and putting the colors and prints together really is so much fun.
This is a 2nd project with the same pattern. I'm making a table topper and the open space between the roofs created a place to applique the kettle. I'm using the Lori Holt method of applique for my kettles. My applique got so much better after my personal Lori class she gave me several months ago. Lori is an applique STAR.
The color palette for this project is different. I had to really search my stash to pick out fabrics that I thought went together.
I am not sure how I'm going to finish off this project around the borders. I'm still trying to decide if I should keep the border large or small. After I applique the teapot I think I'll know how to proceed.
Projects like this fuel my life with creative enjoyment. I know I use the word fun a lot but making these 2 table toppers is really so much fun. Women work so hard and life gets so busy that we all need play time in our lives.
