Thought I would sleep in. Wade volunteered to take Waylon to school. But that did not happen. So I am. Thought I could sew for a while, but oh no, get called to the school. Go spend an hour there in a meeting and 2 hours of my day were gone. Since I was up most of the night I decided it had to be time for a nap. So my May for me started, A 2 hour nap!!!! Then to get Waylon from school and shopping for my brother. Bike fixed and back home to clean house. But I did not finish cleaning!!! I just had to sew!!!!!
While I was cleaning the scraps from my Fall Grapes quilt were on my cutting table. And I have never made a table runner, but a table runner came to mind. So with no pattern I just started to sew together scraps in the same type of way as I did with the quilt. I just connected scraps of different sizes and sewed around a few squares. When I used up the majority of the scraps, it was just the perfect size for a small table topper. I quilted it together by using a swirly loop pattern that I saw on Leah Day's web site. This is the first time I have ever done swirls. I feel that at the end I finally got the hang of it!!!! I sewed the binging on and used another stitch on my machine with swirls to add to the quilting. It was a swirl design. I am loving these extra stitches!!!
Then back to the laundry!!! And even managed a ride to the river before coming home to force my son to clean his room. That is a job in itself!
I think I will give this to Amanda to match her quilt. She is redoing an old sewing table to put beside her reading chair. I think this will be the perfect topper to protect it from what she may put on top!! Hope you enjoy my Friday Finish!!!!
