Maybe I'm a bit ahead of myself, but in October, I'm teaching a class on the cutting and sewing of diamonds. So yesterday, I spent the day constructing this sample table runner.
Yes, a table runner. In my house, it's more like hutch runner, cause that's where it's going! Measuring in at 20" x 60", it's the perfect size for my hutch.
Colors for this runner were inspired by this fabric
which is on the border. Here's a closeup of the various prints.
A nice fall variety and I think I'll quilt leaves on it. Hope the students aren't scared of diamonds after my class.
Another class project I finished up is my hexie coaster.
Turned out nice, except I'll try a thread that blends in better next time. The instructor recommended a medium grey thread, but in this case, I think red would have been better. But not bad for a first attempt.
And I'm finishing up the binding, hanging sleeve, and label on my aqua flowers. Almost there for the grand reveal!
Until then, Happy Quilting!
