    Anchor's away!

    Since I had to enlarge the dining room table to 4 feet X 8 feet, I needed to make something for it so it wouldn't be so naked! So, I made the placemats & went OOOPS! I need a table runner too! About 2 weeks ago I saw an interesting version of the Dresden - with spikes! So, I did it a little bit different & made it the center with the anchors on both ends to match the placemats. Here's the results of all of this!

    Great job - now your table is dressed for company. I don't know if I would let anyone eat on them!

    Cindy, that looks so great. Love the rope border under the anchors on the mats, how perfect. you even have the sun's face quilted in the center of your compass. Love the long swirls in the blue. Oh let's face it I love it all.

    The anchor was a stencil I got from Quilting Creations. The rope stencil I don't remember where I got. Thought they'd go together nicely.
