First Finish in 2015

I finished my goal for ALYOF over two weeks ago but almost didn't get this posted in time.  It was nice to start out and make a small finish that I needed and wanted in the laundry room.

I used the pattern from the FQS and used a charm pack in my stash and most of the fabric pack I had as well.  I cut up a few things and I think I am gifting them to a lady that I met my LQS meeting.  She loves Mary Engelbright and I want less fabric in the house!  That is a win-win!

I was working on pinning this on the basement floor.  Can you tell by the photo?  When I realized I had sewed on a piece backwards.  Not sure how or when that happened but unpinned it and fixed it.  I could never have lived with that.  It took about 30 minutes to fix.

So here is the very cute new table runner long enough to cover the washer and dryer all fixed and finished.  This is where everything gets dropped when we come into the house through our garage so it saves on nicks and scratches on the top of them and since this is right off the kitchen it needs to look good! No I haven't put it there yet! That is on tomorrow's to do list.
Nothing fancy with the quilting this time just straight lines on each side of the colored squares. I went with the scrappy binding to use up what I had. Here is the link to my goal and this is also on my Q1 list as well.  

I am really hoping to find some time to sew tomorrow.  I hope everyone else is sewing and making beautiful things.  

Oh and I signed up for my first mini quilt swap on Instagram.  Oh the pressure - that is not due till June so lots of time to think about that one.

Happy sewing!


  1. It looks great! I also like to use runners to protect things. My husband likes having a topper on his nightstand rather than just a coaster for his water bottle.

  2. Congrats on meeting the goal! I had to look back several times to find the 'upside down' block. . . If it had been me, I likely would not have spotted it until it was quilted ;) It looks fabulous and a cheery bit of fun to brighten up your laundry room :)
