I finally finished my Madrona Road challenge.
Anyway, things are getting back to normal and I was able to spend some relaxing time at my sewing machine.
After receiving the fabric, I knew almost immediately what I would make with it. The fabrics we were given were approx. 6" wide by WOF. I had previously bookmarked a table runner from a special issue magazine called Modern Patchwork that came out last year. I knew it would work well with what I had. I will be honest and say that I'm not sure I really like the fabric. I'm happy with the results though.
I did end up buying two extra fat quarters of the yellow and blue floral as well as a half-yard piece for the backing. I forgot to take a picture, but it's the blue fabric with the donkey and truck on it.
I wanted to make sure that I used all of the fabric so I also made a drawstring bag (found here.) I love this pattern. I had to use two different fabrics for the lining. I really like the look and would probably do it again.
I also made myself this little mug rug. The donkey is so cute.
These items will accompany me to our guild meeting tomorrow.
However, now it's time for some wine and a couple of episodes of True Blood.
Linking up to Find a Friend Friday.
