The Guest Blogger(s) - Vol. 6 - Sunshine from Connie

Welcome to another edition of the Guest Blogger series!!  I contacted Connie the other day, but she wasn't quite finished with her project, at that time.  She was kind enough to forward a preview.

February's TABLE SCRAPS Challenge entry from Connie, who had the following to say about her project...

I tried the string piecing with phone book pages and it went well. Next, I used a table runner tutorial from Connie @ Free Motion by the River combined with Pinterest and other bloggers to make the square topper. Quilting was next, but it's my least favorite thing. Hope to muscle my way through given it's such a small top:

What did I find in my inbox last night???  More from Connie...

Time for several WhooHoo's from me. The yellow strings table topper is finished:

No sun for a good outdoors photo, but grass is visible in the picture that shows the backing. Both sides are going to be great on the kitchen table with a small case of flowers:

And, last but not least, I got the first vaccine shot today! My husband got his earlier this month. We are looking forward to visiting family and friends with some precautions by late spring. I will check your blog to see all the beautiful projects shared by your readers.
Have a great weekend.
