Plaid Table Runners...

We are drowning in plaids around here!  Fall plaids, to be exact....With Rebecca sewing now, we need an outlet for our crafts.  I've opened an Etsy shop and we decided to quilt in our spare time and put stuff in the shop....and destash at the same time....

We are making mini-log cabin block....hundreds of 6" blocks...We made runners in various sizes and I quilted them in a variety of sizes....here are some sexy shots, with cheezy props!




I'm thinking they would look great in a log cabin...that is sort of my target market.  We plan on making modern stuff as well, but right now, we are focused on the holidays.  I only get to sew a few hours a week, but it is relaxing when I get to it....

I'm not sure which quilting is better...swirls, or wavy lines and leaves....???  Hummmm....

Rebecca is making a bunch of blocks for a baby quilt--I'll take pics later this weekend if she progresses far enough.  I'm cutting strips for Christmas table runners....Anyhow, it is keeping us out of trouble and I'm not spending a lot of money!!  Yeah....

We are finishing up first quarter in the school district so that leaves me 15 quarter left x 45 days per quarter...675 days left in my teaching career!  Not that I'm counting....

Happy Quilting!

Great idea! I like the wavy lines better.

I looked at your leafy quilting and love it! I followed the lines through 2 blocks, do you quilt them 2 at the time and break thread? I'm curious! I also love the swirls so if you asked me, I just can't pick! :)

I love the squiggly lines and the leaf. It adds to the look of the plaids in the log cabin pattern. Great combo. You take great photos of your quilting. Very clear.
