What am I up to?

I just finished stippling a table runner for my friend Claudette in the Prairie Paisley by Kansas Troubles. Claudette does beautiful work and we share the love of Kansas Troubles fabric......

This is the project I am working on .. (It has been one of my favourite for a long time. )

and the one I choose for "My Guild Project"
The fabric is "Portebello Market" by 3 Sisters.

It has an appliqué component and

so on meeting and sewing nights, I can choose to sew on the machine or do lap work.....

It is a fun project to do and it uses fabric from my stash that I have been procrastinating to break open "the Fat Quarter Bundle"....


  1. Claudette is one lucky friend! That table runner sure looks fabulous!

  2. Oh my! What a very lovely table runner.

  3. The table runner looks great - your quilting really makes the applique "pop".
    The new project is going to be lovely with such pretty fabric.♥

  4. The runner is gorgeous and look at how confident you've become in quilting on that new Bernina! Great work, Joan. Are the leaves and circles trapuntoed, or is it that suberb quilting that makes them pop?

  5. Beautiful work. Love seeing your finished "Meadow Song" as your blog header. Mine is still sitting on my design wall. It had to go on the back burner while designing a hardanger sampler for Fibre Arts Festival. Hope some ladies down your way will be interested in Beginner Hardanger in the Fall. Keep up the good work. Looking forward to all of your guilds exciting projects to come.
