Silk Table Runner

A new tv cabinet deserves a new table runner.  I made this using a piece of hand-painted silk I bought at a quilt show.  I bought the piece because I liked it but had no idea what I was going to do with it -- until we had this new cabinet delivered & it screamed, "I need a table runner & I need it now!"   I just happened to have the black & gold fabric on hand for the borders.  I didn't use any batting in between the layers -- I wanted to keep it thin so the tv would sit nicely on it.

Grey Rug

Teddy just loves the new grey rug -- it's so luxurious.

Avalon Table Runner

This table runner was made for our friends who have a home in Avalon.  In order to match this particular shade of green, I clipped some fringe bits from an existing place mat to match the colors in the great room/kitchen area -- then added some "sandy" colors along with neutrals.  Hope it looks good in their beautiful beach home!

 White on white sea shells -- there are fabrics for every occasion.
