Thank You and Show and Tell

Thank you to all the wonderful wishes for our sweat little pea! We are so blessed! I am working on the baby's first bib and I will share a picture when it's done. Thank you!

I made this orange and green version of my "Candy Table Runner" when I was testing the pattern and my instructions. I made it in the favorite colors of me and my husband. When I showed it to Barb she said, "Oh, that is perfect for Halloween!" I never thought that but I guess I should finish it and use it in my Autumn decorations.

Last week I had my first quilting class as a teacher and Barb made the "Candy table runner" using Christmas colors. I love the way it turn out! She started at home and had the center pieced. She said my directions were clear and easy to understand. Thank you Barb! She didn't follow my directions for ironing and when I showed her the orange and green unfinished version she wished she did. She was very creative and made a little pinwheel on the sides. She also had the idea to make little fabric 3D candies to add the the side on the table runner! That is so creative, Barb! She used iron-on batting which worked great and she didn't have to pin the quilt to start quilting. I hope she sends me a picture of the finished table runner to share with you. We had so much fun!

NOTE: I put the "Candy table runner" on my Etsy store. I am selling only the PDF version there and on blog for $5.99 for a limited time. The paper version is $7.99 and is only available on my blog. I offer free shipping in the USA. You can see BUY NOW link on the right side bar of the blog.

Thank you for visiting and happy sewing!

You have been busy making good projects.
I haven't made baby bibs in years. I think you have lots of fun baby things to make.

You can have so many different looks from your pattern. The Fall and Christmas table runners are both cute...eating real candy will not be a bad idea too.
