Fall Runner and Trying to Find My Groove!

I had no idea getting into school routines would take up so much time...I thought I'd have more time lol!  Not to mention feeling I've got nothing to post about, or too much...feeling a little overwhelmed these days. Gotta find my groove!

Fall is in the air so I thought I could show one of my favorite creations.  I actually made this last fall from my stash.  It is a simple table runner with some quilting, applique, machine embroidery, and even a little hand quilting.  It is sort of my own design, as I took ideas from several different places and compiled them into this.


You can sort of see the hand quilted maple leaves near the center.  I was planning on covering the whole thing but was frustrated with my choice of thread and gave up after two.  Live and learn, right?



I used my Sulky Rayon Embroidery thread for the machine applique and love how it turned out.  Then added the little flowers with machine embroidery.



I suppose I could say its reversible.  I think as far as sewing goes, fall colors and themes are definitely my favorite.  Not bad for a rookie.  Now I hope I find my groove so I can get more fall goodies made!

Don'tcha love finding new blogs?  I came across JulieKQuilts from a link on Quilt Hollow's blog.  So glad I found her...her quilt tops are beautiful and she has stirred some ideas in my head.. and psst! she's having a GO! giveaway!  Go! check it out!

Until Next Time,

  3. Your table runner looks good to me and I like it that you have used both hand and machine applique.
