Work in Progress

Hi again,

We're finally back from our holidays down south and it was just bliss to get away for a while.  And I even got an amazing new piece of jewellery, an engagement ring!!! Yep Mr N popped the question and I'm still so happy, I can't stop looking down at my left hand.

Since we've got home I've jumped straight into an order my Aunt put in a while ago.

To start with I'm working on a table runner for their Kitchen table and I'll be making a matching runners for their Chinese sideboard and Dining Table as well as a other pieces for their lounge room and bedroom. How exciting.

I'm making the table runners using the postage stamp style of small squares and using this tutorial from Red Pepper Quilts.

The measurements for the kitchen table runner are 75 inches by 30 inches which is huge so lots of cutting.  I'm halfway through cutting up the fabric and have just finished sewing the strips I've cut into blocks. 

I guess it's time to get sewing again :)

Here's some photos so far.
lots of strips all neatly cut (only half of what I need for the kitchen table)

sewn into two's

Ready to sew into fours

Blocks of fours now it's time to start cutting more strips

See you soon with an update
