In June I went to a fantastic retreat
in Yosemite, CA at the home of a dear friend! There were only 3 of us, and we were ALL very productive. I had several projects that I had taken, and was determined to finish each of them. Well, best laid plans...
I had this quilt all cut and ready to sew. I was excited. It looked simple enough.
I got all of the strips sewn together and then went to the cutting table to sub-cut them. I wasn't paying any attention, and cut them all going the same direction. It is impossible to make a braid with all pieces cut the same direction. Improvise!!! (this is the lemonade part)
And this is the result. A table runner. I brought the flimsy home to complete.
I decided to follow the direction of the strips and use my walking foot as my spacer.
I pieced the back so that it could be reversible.
Machine bound it.
And here we are.
Quilted/bound on my domestic machine.
These are all donated fabrics, so I can not tell you the designer or manufacturer.

what a glorious 'mistake'. It looks ever so pretty sitting there on your table!!
Such a pretty runner, Vicki! It really turned out lovely! The quilting with the dark thread looks fabulous and such a perfect binding. Well done!
Nothing says summer like lemonade,and I love yours! Also really like the fact that it is reversible,as I am a big fan of all things reversible.
This has turned out beautifully. Nicer than a braid would have been :)
The sweetest type of lemonade is the unexpected sort! Very pretty!
Gorgeous! I love the backing too!
You made some lovely lemonade from those lemons!! xx
