I decided that this year I am making gifts for friends from my fabric scraps. First was my friend's green cushion and then yesterday I made a small table runner for my friends birthday today.
Starting with a colour I know she has in her dining room - I really hope my memory is right! I pulled the scraps from the pixelated heart quilt and started building a strip piece.
I decided I wanted the quilting to stand out and I tried a new quilt pattern - risky move!
I decide to counter the strip piecing and quilt large curing flowers that run into each other. Great fun! And they added a really nice texture to work. The back is light grey so showed up the texture of the quilting really well.
This is my first go at the design and I got some of the scale off, but I love the overall effect of the flowers running into each other.
The scale of the quilt is just right to put into the middle of the table and put a vase on!
This morning I found this amazing wrapping paper. Patchwork and flowers! Perfect for my gorgeous friend!
Making presents from scraps is working so far!
