Since I'm not managing to do enough quilting these days to warrant keeping my quilting blog up-to-date, I'm going to take the easy way out (at least for the foreseeable future) and post about my handwork projects here on this blog. (Clear as mud?)
I did take an R & R day last Thursday and spent most of the day in my quilt room finishing up a set of three table runners I've been working on little by little all summer. They've been dubbed my "summer" table runners and were put into place on August 10th. (Hey, it is still technically summer, right?)
They're all different . . .
. . . but I used the same assortment of green and neutral fabrics in each one.
This one made up of three blocks of Courthouse Steps ended up on our phone shelf.
The one I made using the Split Rail Fence design is all but hidden under the basket that we use to hold materials to go back to the library and outgoing mail.
Simple squares set on point form the design in this runner on this display shelf in a bookcase/storage unit at one end of the kitchen.
When my dear husband noticed them, he said I'd better get busy on ones for fall. Fortunately, I have two matching autumnal-toned runners that I really like so I'll just have to come up with one more that will look good with the other two. Plenty of time for that. Uh-huh, sure. Methinks fall will be officially here before I know it!
