Here's the picture that was supposed to be in last night's post. Right before I went to bed last night, I took out some of the dark colors and added more red and blue.
I was banned from the computer today because my hubby was waiting for a phone call! So I made two table runners with the squares I took out of this quilt last night. I wanted to try a couple of different ideas to see which I liked best.
We did get an inch of much needed rain last night. Yeah! I won't have to water anything tonight. And it has been much cooler. I do need to refill my hummingbird feeders. I bought another one the last time I went shopping because I couldn't keep the other two full. It looks like a busy airport out there!
Here's my first sample of one of my ideas. This one is made with a navy blue and tan check homespun and an off-white solid on top, off-white flannel on the back, and batting in the middle. The border is off-white flannel. This is the way I usually make my runners, except I use muslin for the backing and border.
And here is my experiment. This one has a dark olive green homespun check and off-white top, an off-white flannel back, and an off-white muslin piece of the same size in the middle, with a muslin border.
What do you think? It is for the small homespun quilt that will be about 40 inches square when it is finished.
I will list both of the table runners on Etsy, so you can go there if you want to see more pictures.
