Hi Quilting Friends,
Welcome to the “Winter Blues” blog hop, hosted by our friend Carla at “Creatin’ in the Sticks”! We’re excited to participate and to see the posts from the rest of the participating bloggers.
As you can deduce from the title, this blog hop is all about the color BLUE! As we began looking at the quilts that we’ve created for Ms P Designs, we realized that we use a LOT of blue!
Here’s a quick slide show to illustrate:
Wow! We do use a LOT of blue in our quilts. Today I’m showing off my new “Goose Trails” table runner, made up in lovely shades of blue!
Here’s a picture of “Goose Trails”:
I decided to make this table runner to give to my youngest son for Christmas this year. He bought a beautiful dark wood dining room table for his apartment, but it looks a bit “naked” without a pretty runner. The colors are perfect for his apartment, and they coordinate well with the dishes that we gave him last year for Christmas. He loves it!
“Goose Trails” was very easy to stitch, and I like the way the geese fly across the surface of the runner. This project used up most of the beautiful blue fabric scraps that I had on hand from the “Born in the Rockies” quilt. I added some straight-line quilting with my even feed foot, using some nice varieagated quilting thread that I had on hand.
It seems like I can’t make a project without turning it into a pattern these days. The pattern for “Goose Trails” is available for purchase right here!
