Working On A Table Runner

Now that I painted my kitchen a lovely shade of pistachio ice cream, I need to redecorate! I started this table runner at work last week, and hopefully I can finish the quilting on it tomorrow, so I can hang it up in the store for a couple on months before taking it home! I just love the embroidery features on the Designer Diamond Royale. I really, really, really want one! I did this with the build in applique tools on the machine design program, and now I cannot wait to finish it so I can stare at it! I really do need one of the embroidery machines at home. Imagine all of the work I could get done! It would be insane! Anyways, wish me luck on quilting this!

Crazy Quilted Pillow

I was working at the Indiana Sewing Center today and I was going to start work on the next crazy quilt, but then I thought about how cute it would be if I did a crazy quilted throw pillow. I am so in love! It was really easy to piece, and it was really fun to embroider, and it is a great way to use up all of my scraps! I still have to do the quilting on it, and then make it into a pillow, but I did all of the piecing and decorative stitches down the seams today. I think I did alright. For the next three months it will be hanging at the Kalamazoo Store, and then after that it is going home with the person I made it for. It’s her birthday present, and I know she is going to love it.
