I just got a new kitchen table. Yeah! A new table needs a new runner. Right? I kept it very simple using some DS fabric from Joann's and some white linen. Then I added my favorite zig zag fabric for the binding.Quilted using 1/2" spaced straight lines that I've been admiring on lots of modern quilts, but have been too lazy to try. It went much faster than I thought! And I love the look!
I also spruced up the family room with some new pillows. It's it great having a stash - when you get the redecorating bug, you just find something on your shelf?
Both pillows are made from Valori Wells' line "Nest". With more of that 1/2" straight line quilting.
I also put an invisible zipper in both pillows following this tutorial. So easy - I did the second one without reading the directions.
Yesterday this is what I bought at the grocery store. I think the check out clerk thought ~ this must be one depressed woman! Actually I'm having the quilting girls over tonight and it's the perfect treat for this hot weather!
