Welcome to another edition of my Guest Blogger series!! Today, I'd like to introduce Connie. She was inspired by the 2021 TABLE SCRAPS Challenge and finished her January project with a couple hours to spare. Unfortunately, as a non-blogger, she had some trouble with the linking-up process. :o((
Never fear, YOU still get to see Connie's quilt!!!
I'm SEW pleased that she contacted me and agreed share her challenge quilt, along with its story, here on the blog.
This is what Connie had to say...
My January project began mid month in a plastic bag. It had fabric from making 6 table runners which I gave to the women in my family about 4 years ago. We do Christmas Crafts or, if you aren't too happy with your outcome, it's called Christmas Cr_ _. There is such competition to do your best. It replaced drawing names among my mom, my sister and 3 sisters-in-law decades ago. Now, any holiday themed decoration is given and, because our daughters and daughters-in-law joined, we make five of the items and pull names. Everyone leaves with five different items. I haven't purchased or made a Christmas decoration in years!
Before and after photos are included of my table topper which was finally finished with hand stitches of the binding about 9:30 p.m. last night. (1/31) I like to have a table topper on my kitchen table to protect it from the sun but I added hanging pockets just to cover my bases.
While I used up some of the pink scraps, all of the red colored pieces are still in need of a project. Guess that I will pull it out when red is the RSC color of the month.
Looking forward to February's color,
Speaking of February...
I'm SEW looking forward to seeing what everyone will make with their YELLOW "table scraps." Please join us the LAST WEEKEND of the month for the February Tables Scraps Link Party. Remember readers, if YOU have a TABLE SCRAPS Challenge project to share, but no blog to share it on, drop me an email with photos and the story of your entry.
Share the quilty love for Connie's project in the comments below. I know you enjoyed seeing her table topper as much as I did. Thank you SEW much for sharing your LOVE-ly project with us, Connie! :o))
Until next time...
Top(per) those tables!!!
