Making Lemonade from Autumn Garden Border



You know the old saying about life giving you lemons? When I ripped off the border from Autumn Garden I had an idea - a light bulb was poised over my head! Why not make a quick table runner from this? I think it turned out quite nice - ready for quilting!


Hubby and I both had errands to run so we joined forced and went together. Our last stop was the local quilt shop so I could do some stash enhancement. These will be cut into strips to make four patches for the final border of En Provence. I plan to cut the strips over the weekend so they'll be ready to go.


I framed my paintings of Cooper and Mickey so that hubby could hang them. I'm still painting a bit each day. I finished Daughter 2's cat - I'll try to remember to share it tomorrow. Now I'm working on a friend's dog. I try to paint a bit each day.

I didn't get a lot done on hexies yesterday, but plan to stitch on them more today.

We plan to get out later - a local art show is happening and we want to stop by. And I MUST clean my sewing room - that's what you get sometimes when you work on multiple projects at the same time. And let's not even talk about the dining room table - painting supplies are COVERING it! I'll be ready to baste Autumn Garden on Monday - machine quilting day - and I baste on this table. So looks like some clean up is in order.

Wishing you a lovely day!

  1. What a serendipitous use for the border. What is terrible in one place turns perfectly lovely in another. Kudos for seeing the possibilities!
