This is my Memorial Day Weekend runner. I am not sure where the sudden desire to quilt came from, but once it started I headed to blogland and flickr for inspiration.
I headed to the craftroom, and dug through my fabric and set to work. I am not sure if there is anything more satisfying than cutting lots of happy little squares of fabric. I love squares.
♥ Especially red, aqua and white squares.
I spent pleasurable afternoon making the quilt top. The next day I made the quilt sandwich, and started quilting. I bought a walking foot for my sewing machine earlier in the week, and it made the quilting so much easier. I quilted over the next few days, and then set to work making the binding strip and sewing it on. I hand stitched the back of the binding, which I found strangely satisfying.
I am really happy with the finished runner. I love my table. Flowers in a mason jar, and candle holders from Ikea. It makes me smile every time I walk into my dining room. I love when a project turns out exactly as you pictured it in your mind.
