Today The Sew Sews started this project. It is a table runner based on the pattern called Hobo Rails which can be found on Craftsy. This is a great beginner project because it isn't too big, and it teaches sewing 2-1/2" strips and cutting with the rotary cutter. We will also do some straight line quilting and binding to finish it off. Above is a sample I made. Lydia selected the watermelon fabric. We were thinking summer!
Not everyone wanted their picture taken, but here are some of The Sew Sews at work today.
I need to show a finished project, so I will also share what my daughter Lydia and I made last weekend - kitty blocks! These are from the pattern The Kittens by Elizabeth Hartman. We just love these. They are cute and so fun to make. I see more of these kitties in our future, and no litter box required :-) Lydia did some awesome sewing. She decided they would be for a pillow for Aunt Brenda's birthday. It turned out great!
Thanks so much for stopping by and reading. I'll be linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts Finish It Up Friday. Have a great weekend everyone!
