Lemonade is Served! (AYOS Finish!)

I fully intended to make a true Schnibble Doc using my Sweetwater Reunion fabric.  Excited by the idea of just starting to sew the HST without cutting the charm squares, I decided to use some cream/ivory charm squares.  All was well until I realized I didn't have matching fabric that could be cut for the lattice strips.


So I turned lemons into lemonade and made this table runner!




I did straight line quilting - which was a lot of fun to do.   I just love the fabric I choose for the backing -




If fact, I like the back almost as much as the front.


Binding was the same pennant fabric as the back - my table is all decked out in loveliness.




Looking forward to this week's parade as well as the next pattern.  Just ordered my Sweetwater's Lucy's Crab Shack charms!


I am linking this finish at Sew and Sew.




Happy Stitching!

  10. Love it Patty!! Reunion is one of my favorite lines. The pennants on the back was a great choice! Your changes to the pattern are so fun! I love the way you offset the blocks.

  11. Oh Patty I love your parade entry! I have said it before but it bears repeating, I am amazed how we all start out with the same pattern and end up with such different results! Love your fabrics too; that green adds a wonderful spark to things! See you at the next parade!
