New Stuff

Here is a pic of the table runner  kit I won as a doorprize on Saturday at the Thistle Guild's quilt show.   I was very impressed with how all the fabric was cut and labelled .  Wonder Under was included for making the applique shapes as well as fusible tape to apply the already prepared bias tape for the flower stems.  Batting, backing and strips to make the binding was also included.  Just start sewing! 

And here is what it looks like now.  I still have to work on stitching around the applique shapes and then bind off.   The method used is quilt-as-you-go, which sews up quickly. A perfect fit for my kitchen table.

Here is a gift I received from my blogging buddy Sheila.  A sweet little mugrug with hand embroidery.  I just love it!  Used it this morning.   Thanks Sheila!
