At our local quilt guild show, I always try to find new inspiration and after a trip or two through the vendor’s stalls I usually come away with a few new favorite things.
Aside from the white, black and invisible thread I found, and some 5 for $20 yard cuts (Yippee!- one is featured in this project), I was hunting for a “comfort” pattern: something to bring a smile to my face and to direct my attention in a focused and relaxed way.
This year I was delighted to find and purchase my third pattern from Quilt Lily Designs, owned by Karen Pratt of Pittsfield MA. This one is called “Wavy Daisy” and was a delight to make.
I spent a splendid recent Sunday morning at the Big Top Quilts Open Sew working on creating this table runner as a gift for my parents and was excited to present it at our recent holiday gathering. (Seen above with honey surprises from a visiting rabbit delivery service!)
Sometimes I need to relax by having directions to follow and an end in sight. This pattern provided the perfect framework for a break from my other quilt projects and provided a useful and sweet piece for the home. I hope you like it!
