Father's Day gift and finished table runner (well, almost)

So, it's a little late, but I thought I'd post photos of the absolutely fabulous frame Molly made for RT for Father's Day. The frame was a very cheap one from Michael's; so cheap, in fact, that it didn't come with glass, so Molly's photo got a little wrinkled. We have more, though. Most of these buttons were harvested from the pants I used for the golf pants quilt. If you look closely at some of the ones on the left side of the frame, you'll see an S. Yeah, that's for Sansabelt!
Here's a closeup of the work. There's lots of glitter! I'm still finding blue glitter in my cereal in the mornings.
Oh, and in quilting news, I finished the curved piecing table runner for the Minnesota Road Show. Well, except some of the hand stitching on the binding.
Here's a closeup of the quilting. This is the closest I've ever come to quilting feathers. I tried to replicate the viney plants in the blue fabric. It's hard to see, but I did the same in the blue areas, too.


  1. I love the frame. What a treasure! That table runner is great. If I had one in green or lavender it would be perfect on my dining room table. I love the replication of the design in your quilting. It looks like it would be very difficult to do.

  2. The frame is absolutely adorable. Glitter? Can one ever have enough glitter? :)

    And the quilt is amazing!!!!! I continue in awe of your work. Fantastic!
