{Tidy Up Tuesday and...} The Guest Blogger(s) - Vol. 5 - Jane from Australia

Welcome to another installment in the Guest Blogger series!!  I was just thinking about Jane yesterday, but didn't have time to pop out an email.  What did I find in my inbox this morning?

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

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away....I attended an appliqué class with Lois French, somewhere in Sydney at a needlework shop. Unfortunately that is as much as I can remember.
Well, I finished the hearts appliqué and was very pleased with it, but never actually did anything further with it:

Luckily I did put some of the leftover fabrics away together with the piece.
Joy’s challenge moved me to make the runner, which is machine pieced and hand quilted with big stitch and perle cotton, still not sure if I need more quilting around ‘February’:

The date is marked with a moveable gold ring.
With thanks Joy,

Thank you for sharing your lovely table runner with my readers, Jane!  I am SEW pleased to be able to post your project on my blog and will happily add it to the Table Scraps Link Party at the end of the week.

Share the quilty love for Jane's project in the comments below.  I know you enjoyed seeing her table runner as much as I did!  Thank you, again, Jane. 

Link Party Reminder...

For your convenience, February's TABLE SCRAPS Link Party will be open from 12:01 AM on Friday, February 26th - 11:59 PM on Sunday, February 28 (EST).  I'm SEW looking forward to seeing what everyone has made with their "table scraps."  Please join us THIS WEEKEND for the Link-up.  Remember readers, if YOU have a Table Scraps project to share, but no blog to share it on, drop me an email with photos and the story of your entry.

Until next time...
Run(er) off those empty tables!!!

  7. So nice that you were able to rescue a beautiful applique block and transform it into a seasonal runner.

  8. Somehow I missed this post in February! But reading it this morning I clicked on the picture to see the gold ring on the date! I had to giggle...the 23rd I’d my birthday! That was fun!

  9. So pretty! I love quilted items with some applique on it. I need to do more of that.
