I decided to make another Jewel table runner using some fat quarters of blue and brown batiks and also make a pdf of my original post that can be downloaded if you would like. Here is the original Jewel table runner tutorial.
We finally had a day without wind and I was able to go down by the river and take some pictures. This doesn’t look like a very comfy place to sit….does it!
The Mississippi river goes up and down….and up and down. We have had it freeze pretty good a couple of times and it is neat to see what comes up on the river edge. I don’t think we want to call this a “beach”. Let’s see what do we have:
Clamming and pottery making used to be big things in our little town. Some people have actually found complete jugs but all I find are pieces. In the spring we will find lots of glass, wire and other icky things that we continue to pick up and throw away.
When it gets warmer I’ll get my granddaughters to come down and help, I’ll make a little contest out of finding blue or red glass. They have fun finding shells.
I almost forgot to show you the back of the table runner. The only quilting I did on the table runner was on the cream strips.
After I cut the squares for my blocks I had a little bit left…..I can see a mug rug coming soon!I never know if I should put a pinnable image at the beginning of my post or at the end. Any ideas?
