I belong to a quilt group. We call ourselves Sisters in Stitches. I
just love this group of ladies. We have a wide range of taste and
talents. I am the newbie of the group with the least experience in
quilting, but they are always encouraging and supportive. We spend most
of our time laughing and a little of our time working on projects. This week was our quilt group’s Christmas gift exchange.
The second I saw the pattern for this runner by Me and My Sister Designs, I knew it must come home to live at my home. I had been drooling (not literally--well, most of the time) over our Spring Terrace collection since Jenni first shared her artwork for it. (Disclaimer: I bleed green and yellow; I have been a huge Oregon Ducks fan since birth). I chose similar fabrics from our collection and used our Design Table feature to keep straight which fabric I was subbing for what.
Have you seen Shannon Mower of Modern Tradition's revamp of Cascading Garden Quilt using our Nana’s Pantry fabric. We love it! It is so bright and fun.
I had a chance to interview Shannon. I hope you enjoy getting to know her as much as I did.
When I first saw the Oh Christmas Tree pattern by Nancy Rink,
it was love at first sight. So I begged Nancy if we could use her
pattern as a download pattern for Gifty this year. Her directions were
so easy to follow and the project went together so quickly, depending on
what applique method you use. It only took me a weekend (with lots of
other engagements) to finish this project up. I used fusible applique,
but hand embroidered the button stitch around the tree.
Here is the second post about the Falling Leaves Table Runner. Read my first post about the pattern and fabrics here.
