Design Wall Monday

A lot has happened in the last week. First, the design wall:

I'm still working on matching up the "sand" strips for the wedding table runners. I did get one completely finished. The final measurements are 13" x 40".

My friend, Chris, snapped this photo while she was helping me on Saturday.

The Sonoma Marin Fair was this past week and while I knew my entry won an award, I didn't see it until this afternoon. Danielle Couch pieced this and I quilted it. We entered it in the group category and won first place. We also won the Joyce Gross Award of Excellence, sponsored by the Petaluma Quilt Guild. Joyce was a well-known quilt historian and a member of our guild.

Design Wall Monday

I spent the weekend cutting and matching fabric for the wedding table runners. I went a little crazy. I have 27 sets so far and I only need 17. I will probably make them all and give the extras as gifts.

This is the final design:

I used two fewer colors and left off the two outside rows on each side. This makes them about 13" x 40". This size fits the table better and takes less time to make.

Design Wall Monday

Finally something new! This is a prototype of the table runner I will be making for my daughter's wedding. The wedding theme is the beach so I was trying for a "surf and sand" feel. I think I nailed it! They are a little big. I have never done bargello-style before so I followed the instructions exactly. I think the final product will need to be narrower to fit the tables better. The second picture shows it on my work table which I think is about the same size as the reception hall tables. Now to make 20 more!
