Rocketing In To The New Year With A Table Runner And My First Bee Block.



My how the time races by

with a bit of work

gardening, swimming, paddock activity

and sewing of course.

One more look at the finished quilt "Summer Beach Holiday" from my last post.

Also I have made a wee table runner from a few pieces of the gorgeous Daisy Janie Organic Cotton "Tilly" range.

These I combined with some beautiful cotton checks..reverse side has Designer’s Guild fabric.



Also the Quilting Bee is underway and I am preparing my first Bee Block.

I am sure we will all find ourselves working with some unusual color combinations

as we work with other people’s selections.  It is nice to get outside of one’s own box sometimes!

I have actually posted off my first finished bee block to Adrianne at On The Windy Side.

I’ll show you the block once Adrianne has seen it first.

Meanwhile we are having out third day of summer rain here…

  1. Hi Sally, so glad to see the year starting off so productively! Love the table runner.

    Your quilt and table runner are wonderful! Love how cheery the quilt is and the fabric on the back of the table runner is gorgeous! I’m jealous of your paddock time – too cold here with ice hiding under the snow and the temps staying below freezing all the time!

    Hi Salsy
    I’m your newest follower since we’re in a bee together. I’m guessing you’re in NZ since you’ve already received and returned your bee block. So Speedy-you’re setting a high standard for us all! I’m sure my postie will bring it here soon.

      Hi Camilla. Thanks so much for joining my blog. I am in NZ..just an hour north of Wellington. I guess I was a bit keen to get the block done so I can spend time planning my quilt which is in April. All a new experience to me.
