Ruby and Turquoise

A couple of hard-won finishes to share - this mini scrappy trip along was made with 8 strips instead of 6 a la Frecklemama. Came together really fast compared to how slowly I felt like the others went together. Maybe I'm just getting better/faster? Also, I pinned NOTHING, which is a huge switch for me. Honestly I see no difference between the one I painstakingly pinned and this one. Lesson learned. I added a border to make it look a little more finished - it ended up at about 40" square, perfect for a wall-hanging or baby quilt.
Fun new table runner - Keyhole pattern. This came from a book called On A Roll Again by Heather Mulder Peterson, published by Anka's Treasures - not sure if it's still in print but it has some great quilt/table runner patterns for jelly rolls (or 2 2/2" strips you cut yourself, like I did :-)
Just one more gratuitous quilt shot for fun. So why all the ruby and turquiose? Go check out Fabricate Atlanta and you'll see why! You can see these lovelies in person at their open house THIS Saturday at 2pm - it's going to be a fun place to learn and connect with other crafty minded people in Atlanta and we all need more crafty people in our lives, right? Right! One of the amazing people coming to teaching April is Vanessa from LBGStudio - her Photography for Bloggers as well as her incredibly cute Foldover Clutch. Can. Not. Wait.

Hope to see you Saturday!

  1. Great color combo! Both the quilt and the table runner turned out great. Fabricate sounds like such an amazing place. I wish we had something like that around here.
