hi everyone ~

just when ya think you know a computer program, some ‘update’ comes along, and it gets “migrated” into another program… and then we seem to have internet issues… you know… all that jazz! 

in the meantime, i’ve been developing some other ideas for tablerunners using my fused flower shapes… creating, drafting, running to the print shop… re-writing… and writing  new patterns, and of course, quilting them… and that has been very fun!  {more to come} 

today’s it’s about  a more dainty variation of my new “paris gibson garden” tablerunner collage pattern. with a color theme of light pinks, cream, coral and peach with hints of gold and gray-greens, it’s got a softer overall look on a subtl printed fabric background. i quilted it with a solid gold {superior‘s 40 wt magnifico polyester}.  

this variation utilizes medium to smaller flowers, and more open spaces… but my favorite feature  is the the two groupings of flowers that i placed off-center, in the middle, which makes a lovely accent to a vase or whatever one might place in the actual center of this piece…  

and if you look closely, you can see that the tinier flowers are kept in groups, but look delicate, and yet hold their own in the overall design of this runner, which makes them easier to cut, and fun to place! 

have a great day, and thanks for coming by!  i’ll be showing {and giving away a pattern or two} … soon!

  1. Hi Leslie,

    I want you to know how much your work has inspired me to create pillows and small quilts using very different techniques than what my dear mom taught me. Thank you for sharing your brilliant work with us each week.

    I love your table runner and can't wait to make one for my home.
    Blessings Abundant,

  2. Such a gorgeous piece – the quilting and the fabrics are absolutely perfect together. Now I really want to go quilt… 😉
