Quite a few of you have written to tell me you saw my Attention to Detail table runner in the current (June 2011) issue of American Patchwork & Quilting. Some wondered why I hadn’t posted about it on the blog.
Well, the reason is that my little tablerunner is late returning to me. It had tagged along American Patchwork & Quilting staff and done some traveling to quilt guild meeting(s?) since the publish of the magazine.
You can see the applique is poofed up from being quilted over Hobbs Tuscany Wool batting. For the actual quilting, I used YLI 100 silk instead of my usual Aurifil Mako 50 Cotton to give the overall quilting a finer look. The fabrics are a combination of Anything but the Kitchen Sink, Jinny Beyer Palette, and Pindots – all by RJR.
Taking a little detour here… These butter leaf cookies are the STUFF! I had picked up a box of the cookies at the store because they were on sale. Now, I wish I had picked up ten boxes instead of one. They taste a lot like the Danish cookies I used to love when I was a child, except they are much richer !!!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a lovely day. Now for the very serious question of the day: Are you a fan of those Danish cookies I talked about?
