Squedge 18 table runner

Pam asked me if I thought I could use a jelly roll and make a table runner using the squedge tool she has in the shop.

The answer is YES, I can, But I don't know that anyone else would want too.

Short story long.....jelly rolls are 2 1/2" strips, the instructions for this pattern called for various widths from 1 1/2" to 4 1/4.  I chose to stick to the 2 1/2" I had on hand.
This roll did not have any duplicate strips so I had to piece some of the larger lengths.

 The pattern was fairly easy to follow once I got my strips into sets.  There is a bit of waste cutting the odd angle but I have an on going crumb project these will be added too, so all is good.

Trunk Show at P-Dubs

I am probably the only gal that does a 'trunk' show sitting down--lol

Thanks, Pam for asking me to show off a few of the scrap quilts I have made using my GO and/or BABY and the DIES.

Both shows were a lot of fun for me.  I like asking/answering questions.  I love sharing/teaching new to you ideas/concepts. 

Special THANKS to Pat for lending me her apron so I could look/feel like a shop worker.  Now of course I am working on making my own to wear when I am feeling creative!

Friends and Family all know that I wear several hats.  It was a blast for me to get to keep my 'creative' one on for a full day.  Fun enough that I agreed to hang out at Pam's shop again this Friday & Saturday for the Shop HOP.

I don't know what she is going to be having me work on/with but I bet I have fun doing so.

Check out the Trunk Show post and join us this weekend!

If you want to see my 'other hat' give me a call if you are looking to buy or sell a home or farm in SW MO.

Coffee Table quilt?

I was sorting through some gifted scraps from a friend.  I came across a partial strip and some geese in progress.  I am assuming these didn't make it into a beautiful heirloom keepsake at her house.
Well, not enough for a top but more then a table runner.

What's a gal to do?

Compromise.  I nice size for the top of the living room coffee table.  Maybe someday this will get a little bit of applique, maybe not- we will just have to wait and see.

I do claim two points for cleaning off the table to lay out the top!!
Needs to spend time with the iron and get trimmed up to quilt.  If one of the grand daughters call 'dibs' for a doll quilt, we may have a fight on our hands.  This may have to be added to my 'collection'--lol

Can't run to AR and not go out to the lake for a bit.  Short trip but wonderful time together.

We didn't get to take the boat out but we did get to see a few fish.

Unkel Tom's fish pond.  Made out the parts from an old satellite dish.  

The gazebo is fenced to keep Critters from dinning on the gold fish.
