It's July!

I cannot believe that the 4th is this weekend, or Monday to be correct.  I am behind in my posts.  I wanted to do two a month for 2016 but have only done one for May and now only one for June.  I need to catch up and quickly.

This is the table runner that I made for the 4th last year.  It is a pattern from Shabby Fabrics and was a kit from Keepsake Quilting.  Sometimes, when you see a material combination that you like, you have to buy the kit.  They give you more than enough material to make the runner and you have left over material.  I had enough material to make two sets of stars.  The second one is bordered in the same blue material that I was able to find at my local quilt shop.  This was done with fusible applique and then machine quilted, a gold metallic thread for the starburst lines. 




On my Butterfly Doiley, row nine was completed with only two untats.


Row ten has begun for the second time.  I did five repeats before I reread the directions and saw that I was doing it wrong.  I had to cut it off and begin again.  Thankfully I looked early.


 
 
Happy Fourth of July to you all.
