Mum don't read this!
Got to be the funniest blog post title I've ever used! You know though, I bet she will read it. It is like a red rag to a bull or whatever that saying is. Especially when the preview picture comes up, she will wonder what it is all about.
Anyway, I was feeling inspired on the weekend and felt like quilting. I don't quilt. I'm not a quilter. But I just went with it.
The red fabric is Home for Holidays by Riley Blake and came with my November Sew Box Subscription. The green is another Riley Blake - Christmas Candy and the green and red pop are also Riley Blake (recently made into peasant dresses for our markets). Yes I love Riley Blake.
So I cut up my 6 inch squares and started sewing. No layout, just went with it. Pieced it all together, did some diagonal quilted lines (red one way and green the other, just, well... because I can!). Backed and edged with red spot fabric.
I made it to go on the table for Christmas. Mum has a big table and regular size runners just look weird and skinny, so hopefully this is better.
I might just send it off to her now so she gets the surprise in the mail and can use it before Christmas day.
