A couple of finishes

Today I would like to show you a couple of table runners I have finished.  This first one I made using blocks from a Craftsy class by Joanna Figueroa.  The class is called "Smarter strip quilting" and so far I have only finished this first part, but I am so ready for part two!  Has anyone else taken this online class?  It is such a great way to learn new techniques, and Joanna is a super teacher! 

I figured I´d show you the whole runner from Brenda Riddle´s class as well ( the one I went to at Quiltegaarden in Trondheim).  I love the happy colors and think it makes a great summer runner!

I finally got my new computer, and this in my daughter and me playing with "photo booth".  We decided we looked pretty awful with the funky filters- so this plain picture was the best one.  Switching from a windows based PC to a Mac has ben nice.  LOVE the way this iMac functions so far.  Just need to figure out the picture stuff.... Not sure if I will buy Photoshop for it, or if an app will be sufficient.  Any thoughts on that by any of you using Mac?
Today is such a beautiful day- I think I will take my stitchery out in the sun for a while.  Hope your day is good!



  1. Beautiful runners and lovely ladies! Thanks for sharing all the beauty from your corner of the world!
