It was all about wine this week in studio as I started a year long table runner pattern to participate in Joy's challenge.
I found this pattern from Hoffman Fabrics free, online, and thought I could make the bottles in the rainbow scrap challenge color of the month!
so I went into the pink scrap box, and decided what to call my special vintages... made sketches on paper, took the muslin and fabric markers to draw a label on.
After the stray threads are removed and it's quilted, it won't be noticeable.
Now I didn't dither and dally over the images or do mock ups or plan anything. I just drew it on and sewed.
Can't wait to see more colors emerging for the runner!

I am doing Project Quilting this year, so when the work from home, round robin came to my attention I said, NO!
Then thought, maybe....so I found this book
|yes, this fabric combo will work!|
used a scrap of fave background fabric unavailable now, and my happy pinks and will be sewing with that pretty turquoise thread up there!
So if I like what they are planning at the round robin site, I'll use this large block for my center ! A good studio quilt I think!
Now about the pattern... Lori Holt made a convenient cutting chart, but.... watch out. Sometimes her chart says to cut the necessary pieces for that block, sometimes her chart has cutting for the whole row included. I had to turn on my brain to figure out what was actually needed for just one block. Again, sometimes her instructions WERE for one block, sometimes for ALL the blocks in the same chart.
Following patterns isn't that much fun to me, but at the moment I need easy sewing to divert my attention from Americans attacking our own capitol with guns and bombs. I am also using online recipes which if you know me, you know cooking isn't my passion. Here are last night's pumpkin/ cheesecake muffins.
