    I can't believe that I haven't posted anything here or done any quilting work since January of 2009 :cry: I finished my first quilt, an Ohio Star wallhanging in December 2008, worked on a few small projects and another wallhanging top, but that was that. Of course having to part with my machine for a good nine-month period due to a work move didn't help. But I've been lurking and enjoying all the beautiful masterpieces you all have been creating. A few weeks back, I decided that I needed to dress up my new dining table, so I found an easy pattern in (I believe) Quilter Magazine for a table runner, and then just slapped together some squares and rectangles for six placemats. It took a long time, but I am happy with the end result. :) It feels wonderful to get back to quilting.

    Thanks all for the kind words.

    Sharon, the bug is surely back. Next, I am going to tackle Cynthia England's picture piecing pattern I got at the International Quilt Festival in 2008. I am not sure what I was thinking when I bought it, she made look so easy, now every time I look at it, I am scared of all the tiny pieces, but I am going to cut and sew one section at time, and hopefully finish it before the end of the year :) (That is how slow I am).

    I would like the pattern for the table runner & placemats
    I really like them & they look fairly easy. I am a beginner quilter.
    Thanks :lol:

    Candi! The table runner and place mats are wonderful! I was away from my machine for over 10 YEARS!
    I was wondering about the fabric you used for your table runner border. Do you know who makes it and where I might find it? It would be perfect for the border of a sampler quilt I'm working on!
    Thanks for the info (if you know)!!
