sunny days


Finished my 4th vintage linen quilt for the table: "sunny days" is 22" * 48". All four are simple checkerboard layouts in various color combinations and sizes. Just simple shapes ...

Quite happy to have made some smaller quilts for the table (can tick off one task on my quilting list for 2010). These cheerful vintage prints are bringing summer inside ; )

A little stack of them:




We are enjoying some sunny days, hoping for more to come...

Happy sewing, gardening, or maybe having an outdoor picnic?

They are beautiful, Marit, and will bring sunshine inside even on a grey and boring day!
I'm enjoying the first rays of sunshine this season, maybe I should put on some sunscreen.-)

Very sweet. I've seen some really terrific vintage linen projects--mostly quilts. I've never seen tablerunners. Great idea.

Janet said...

They are lovely and they do look like a bit of sunshine, something we've been lacking around here.

They are just lovely!

I am also hoping for many more sunny days. I am also working on some table runners with leftover scraps and hope to finish them this week! The one you made really reflects the sunny days! Great job.

I love your table cloths do you use batting in them when you quilt them and what kind do you use.

Carla said...

I've been looking for some inspiration ideas to use with the vintage sheets from a recent online swap. Thanks for showing your lovelies!

Hei!! De ble super fine alle sammen!!Er imponert over stipplingen din...... Quiltingen i lazy gal quilten din er også super.... Jeg har vært på et morsomt kurs i helgen i Kragerø. Har farget og holdt på!! Stoffene går i vaskemaskinen nå. Spennende!! AnneK:-)

Evelyn said...

Another beautiful one!! I love them all stacked up like that - just wonderful. Love the stippling like crazy. I'm trying some straight-line quilting right now, and I'm regretting not stippling, especially when I see yours looking so pretty. Oh well, I can always make more! :-)

Sharon said...

These will certainly make your meal time pleasant. What lovely color combinations you did, and they certainly capture that vintage look and feel. Just lovely! Sunny Days does look just like a sunny summer day!
