Let’s Bee Social #194

Posted on: September 13th, 2017 by Lorna McMahon

Welcome to the Let’s Bee Social!
So glad to have you join us for the Let’s Bee Social weekly linky party!

So this past week, I have been working away on my first of two table runners that I am making as part of the Tablerunner Bliss quilt along. Because Fat Quarter Shop carries such a wide selection of beautiful fabrics it was difficult to choose what to use for this runner, but I finally decided on using fabrics from the Manderley collection. There is such a lovely variety of colours and values in this collection and they all play together so well!



These tiny 9 patches…. Aren’t they adorable?!!!

We have sashing and borders…

And we’re ready for quilting!

    What a yummy combination of pinky-red and white. That will certainly whet the family's appetite.

    Oh your table runner is gorgeous, such pretty fabrics, nice work!

  17. I see a lot of red and white in your quilt and in many of the posts. I've been in a red and white mood, and it seems like I am not the only one!

    Hi, Lorna!Your table runner will be beautiful. I have a question as I'm trying to figure out how to make my pics look better on my blog. How did you get your blocks so crisp and flat looking? I iron and use Best Press but they still don't look as good as yours.
