Here are some smaller projects that have kept me busy since returning from our 2 week vacation back East (NY and Maine) - I finally started a new quilt this week, so back on the bandwagon!
Modern Triangle Table Runner
While in NY, we stayed with Steve's Dad and wife Grace both in their LI home and upstate vacation home. It was Grace's birthday while we visited, and when we got back I created this table runner as a thank you and birthday gift for their newly painted dining room. Steve helped me pick out some of the fabrics at a quaint fabric store in a red barn while we were in Maine - Alewives Fabric.
This was fun and easy to make. I used a Dresden Plate ruler to cut out the triangles.
The back side is primarily linen with 2 strips of triangles.
On display on our table, with a brand new pottery pitcher given to us as an engagement gift! I thought they went well together -
As promised, I created this initial pillow to accompany the twin size quilt I made for my niece Eden earlier in the summer. I used up some of the scraps from her quilt- and continued with the flower quilting. Every 3 year old needs an initial pillow, right? :)
Pretty Pear Placemats
These I actually completed before our vacation as a gift for Steve's mom Sheila. We celebrated her birthday while in New York. There is a set of 4, all in this cheery bright green, gray and blue palette. I forgot to take these on a photo shoot before we left, so these are some quick snapshots Steve got at her apartment. I love these Pears, don't you?
