Girls Night Out

Friday night we had a Girls Night Out event at The Sewing Center. There were just a few of us there, but we had a great time and I think everyone got quite a bit of sewing done. I got a little cowgirl quilt cut out and then moved on to my tablerunners. I was hoping to get two tablerunner tops done from the On the Run book by Heather Mulder Peterson. I had both cut out, but ended up only getting the blocks made for one of the tops. I did a bit of ripping because I forgot to match my center points. The fabric is from the Essence line by Sandy Gervais for Moda. I'm going to have quite a collection of tablerunners out of this line when I'm done. These are made from a layer cake and a dessert roll.
I layed out all the blocks to see what it was going to look like. I'm not sure I like the orange lattice, but it's a unique tablerunner so maybe it will grow on me. The teal with flowers is the backing fabric. I hadn't cut enough lattice strips since the number in the book was wrong, but luckily I had enough fabric to finish cutting them.
We had a fun Girls Night Out and hope to do it again in a couple months.

Yeap, got to love Sandy Gervais. As you probably remember, I recently used Essence for my table toppers from an Essence turnover. I have more of this line to do more projects.

I guess you and I connect on this line...LOL

Something else that is funny - I bought the On The Run book by Heather Mulder Peterson too...LOL
I haven't used it yet but fell in love with the patterns in the book.

That bottom picture makes it look like one really long table runner :) On my screen the lattice looks red, not orange, and seems to go just fine with the other blocks.
