Checking In and a Special Announcement!

Hi everyone!  Sorry it's been a while since I've posted.  It's been a little crazy here!  I've finished up a couple things (will fill you in eventually!) and have just sort of played around a bit in the Studio.  Remember the second of the two blue and white table runners?  It's finally all set to go.

I think this one is my fave of the two. Oh, I know - the fabs are identical on the front --- but I did squiggly-like quilting on this one and I think it adds a certain flow. Or something.

Don't you think? Compare it to the photos of the other one found here. Just a matter of preference.

Here's a look at the back, too:

This one is more "me".

Speaking of me - or not - I have a SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT to make!!!  I've lined up a guest blogger!!!  A friend of mine who professes to be a "beginner" quilter (ha!  yeah, sure, she just started, but my WORD, she is already doing amazing things!!!) made an awesome table runner using a "half-hexagon braid" technique.  It's just STUNNING!  She put together a great tutorial for all of us that I'll post tomorrow!  So grab your friends and come on back - I can't WAIT to try her technique!!!

Thanks for reading!

I look forward to it.

I have another question: how do you get the squiggly lines to be so even?

I love the squiggly lines! The runner turned out lovely! Can't wait to meet your guest blogger!

Very nice workmanship! Squiggly lines look very nice.
Looking forward to reading your guest blogger's post.
