Text-ing

 

On my last trip to the Sauder store I bought a bolt of text print fabric. I’ve had lots of ideas running through my head on how to use text prints. Since it’s craft show season it’s been hard to find time to experiment with it. Last week I stole a few minutes and made these.

This mug rug was made with text print and solid scraps from the Confetti quilt.

And this is a table runner made with my stack of 2.5 squares that are used as leaders and enders.

I think I’m going to enjoy working with this print. I may even have a New York Beauty in my future

Autumn is Coming

Wow, I didn't realize it had been so long since I'd done a post!

Now that DD is back at school, I have gotten back to my routine. I love the weather we're having, nice sunny days and cool crisp nights. I like Fall colors although they aren't my favorite. I've been working with lots of orange, brown and rust lately. Not to mention purple, black, gray and green for Halloween.

I've finished a table runner, a few mug rugs, a tote and a cosmetic bag.

 

 

 

 

This week I'm going to work with some other colors before I start making table runners for Thanksgiving. After all a little orange goes a long way.
