This was a very quilty birthday for me! My little bro Ed got me a Rotating Cutting mat that is 14" square, so I can square up my 12" blocks. Mom and Dad got me a pressing sheet for applique, On the Run tablerunner book, and a new iron. I also got a fun new purple MP3 player. It's already fully loaded and I've listened to several books on it.
I picked out a new pattern from the On the Run book and decided to make it with the Essence line from Sandy Gervais. I got a layer cake and some accents to go with it. I plan to make the tablerunner on the front of the book.
Then I decided to use some of the new Wildflowers fabric from Heather Mulder Peterson to make another tablerunner. I'm making the Club Sandwiches runner from "Let's Do Lunch" by Atkinson Designs. I got thread to match both of these, so I hope to get at least one of them done this weekend. I had fun buying fabric with my mom. It's something I haven't done in quite a while, but so much fun when we do have a chance.
