Saturday, I had a package waiting for me at the post office. It was my copy of Stitch Summer 2012 from Interweave.
It came with my hip squares table runner. It’s the second time I get a project published in Stitch and it is something really rewarding to actually hold the magazine in your hand and see your project. The first time was for my lily pillow covers, see this post for the details.
I really like the photo they made to feature it. All the surrounding white make the bright colors of the table runner pop!
For the fabrics, I have used Kona in Turquoise, Peackock, Orange and Lime for the solid colors. The floral print is the Gypsy Flower in red from the Gypsy Bandana collection by Pillow & Maxfield for Michael Miller. I ordered it from Tonic Living which is a Canadian online shop with a nice selection of prints in quilting cottons and heavier cotton weights. The remaining is Essex linen blend in Natural.
Here is the back. I think we can say it’s reversible!
One my favorite part is the little detail I put in the binding.
