Red Shot Cotton Table Runner

This a Table Runner that I made in just a day or two. It really was that quick and fun to make.
It is using range of Shot Cottons - a set of fat eighths in fact plus the binding.

It is one that we have as a kitset for at the shop and we had a sample on loan
 from the fabric suppliers but they needed it back - oh bother!!

I think it will be great for Christmas time too.

Modern Dear Stella Quilt

Over the last week or so I have been working away on my machine making a modern quilt. Most of the fabrics came from a new Dear Stella range.

I used Karen Davis' "Dawn Chorus" pattern. On her original quilt she has
applique birds added to her solid panel, but I have fussy cut some flowers out 
from the feature fabric and used.them instead. They are just fused on and the quilting 
holds them in place.

I do loved the quilting that Karen used on hers so I have done my in a similar 
fashion - just not quite as close together as hers was. In case you can't quite see the 
quilting it is wavy lines going across the quilt - but never touching.

That was just an impromptu deviation from by 1930s quilt - now I had better get back 
to it and piece the alternating blocks!!
