Having rediscovered clay, my sewing time has been somewhat curtailed, but last night I did start a table runner. I just discovered the StringThing quilt along blog and almost jumped into starting a full-sized quilt, but caught myself just before I started cutting strips.
The idea for the pattern is from a free download on the moda free patterns page, here
this is the quilt:
(Of course, I didn't look at the pdf of the instructions until just now, so I can see that I am sewing it in a whole different way, which I actually had thought of doing, but dismissed, since I thought for a table runner it would be easier to mix up a more limited range of fabrics if I sewed it this way, )
I just sewed 3 strip sets that are about 20 inches long, using 2-1/2" strips of fabric,-- 3 grey strips and 3 colored strips in each set: (I'm using grey for where the white is in the one above)
To 13 of them, I added a colored square to the ends, and to the remaining 12, added a grey square to the ends.
In working on a knitted project, I am happy to report that I have been happily knitting along on my very simple stockinette stitch sweater. (alliteration :) )
