The second I saw the pattern for this runner by Me and My Sister Designs, I knew it must come 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.
(yes, I even have green and yellow Nikes, I am obsessed!)
The project came together really quickly; it is a simple design but the fabrics give it impact and charm! You could even use different Christmas colored scraps to put it all together in a more scrappy way, or use black and jewel tones, or batiks...so many options.
I was really happy that my 1/4 inch seams are looking really good since my last project. Practice makes perfect!
My 15 year old daughter, Tori, showing how HUGE this runner is--it's dining room table size!
I "stitch in the ditched" to quilt it; I'm not quite ready to test my meandering skills but that will come soon.
I can use it during the holidays, as a non-traditional color scheme, and year round with the yellow, blue, and green colors throughout my home. I will probably be making a few more as my mom has already put in her request!
It looks lovely with the wreath I made last weekend as a centerpiece:
And it looks SO GOOD with my HELMET! Teehee!
