WIPs on Wednesday

Are you like me? Every year I say, "I'm going to start my holiday sewing early this year." Well this year I actually have started early. I've started my Halloween sewing and I'm really proud of myself. I've made a few mug rugs and pieced these table runners.

 

And I have two more in the works!

I've also pieced this Autumn themed table runner.

 

I hope you have started on your Autumn holiday items because the winter holidays will be here before you know it. :)

Please excuse this short post. I'm writing it from my hotel room. DH and I are on a mini vacation.

WIPs on Wednesday

Do you ever have trouble trying to decide what color combination to choose for your next quilt? Do you have a color combination you love and consider it your “go to” combination?

Being a scrap quilt lover I’ve never actually had a color combination I was hooked on. I love all colors, all the time the more the better. Yet I’ve always wanted to make a blue and white quilt. I’ve been collecting blue and white fabric for some time now (like years) and lately I’ve been thinking it’s time to stop collecting and start sewing. Now all I need to do is settle on a pattern!

 

This is my inspiration! I collect Polish pottery. This isn’t my collection, it’s borrowed from the internet. It’s great inspiration, don’t you think?

Hey maybe I’ll even make a blue and white table cloth to show off my collection.

So tell me, do you have a favorite color combination?

Decorate Your Table

Quilts are a wonderful addition to your home decor.  One of the places I like to use quilts is on the table.  Whether it's a table runner, or a large quilt used as a tablecloth, quilts really can make a delightful statement when used this way.  Here are some great examples of table decor made by Quiltsy Team members:

No matter if your table is large or small, you can find a table runner that will make your house feel like a home!
