It's hot here in Southern California!
Some days it's so hot, that you feel like doing nothing. I made a couple of little crafts with Brenda, and lots of cleaning and organizing.
We did some summer activities, like movies and things like that. Still about a month until school starts.
This week I managed to do a little sewing, and finished this table runner .
I used only scraps and fabrics from my stash. I am really trying to use the fabrics and craft supplies I have at home.
I got the inspiration from here.
My blocks are smaller, the runner was made to fit my sideboard.
I think I need to do some more quilting, and them machine wash and dry.
I used about twelve different prints in green and red. None of the six blocks have the same combination of prints. I always have a hard time piecing. Somehow, I always do a little bit of mess up. These blocks were fun to make, but they are not perfect. I enjoyed very much making this table runner. I love the colors and the pattern.
I specially love the candy cane binding. It adds a nice finishing touch.
It took a long time for me to decide to make a Christmas table runner. I could not make up my mind on the pattern to use. Now, I just need to make a Valentine one to complete my small collection.
Have a great weekend and stay cool!
