More leftover half square triangles!

I had a baggie of trimmed snowballed corners which I had stitched together.  In an endeavor to clear off my sewing table a bit, I decided to piece them into a tablerunner.   I am so glad I did.  I now have another patriotic decoration!!!

I was getting behind on my mini dresden BOM too.  So I stitched up July and love how bright and sweet it is.

My son moved out in May as he graduated college and found an awesome job in Charleston.  I have slowly been changing his room into a guest room.  I have a patriotic/ beach theme going on in there.  Prompted by the blue color on the walls.  I have been eyeing out this whale shelf for months at Hobby Lobby.  I found it in the clearance section for $11 a few weeks ago.  I could not pass it up.  I just need to put some goodies in it.  Love, love, love my whale.

My washer broke two weeks ago - in the middle of a load of bedding!  I had to carry the bedding upstairs to rinse out in the bath and drag it downstairs again to go and hang outside to dry.  What a mission.  But it was all worth it as I now own this set of beauties.  I love a front loader and they work so wonderfully well.

Thank you for stopping by.
Until next time, happy stitching.

A Completed Table Runner!

I started this table runner in June.  It is a free pattern posted by Jedicraftgirl and Gigisthimble.  They do a 5 Fat Quarter free quilt pattern at the beginning of every month.  

I love these patriotic pineapples and pinwheels.  The quilt is in a 3 x 3 configuration.  I made some extra blocks for the runner.

Of course I still have to quilt the 3 x 3 configuration quilt.  I love how this runner turned out.  It is long and has presence on my dining room table.

I cross-hatched the pineapples and did an all over meander with stars in the background fabric.

I thank you for visiting.
Have a lovely day.
