Fall is in the air. Okay, not really. This is Virginia in the first week of September. It’s currently 90 degrees out. But I wish Fall were in the air. It’s my favorite season.
I’ve been working on a project that has an autumnal feel to me:
I call it the Bohemian Feather Table Runner. It’s inspired by and adapted from this beautiful Anna Maria Horner quilt. I just loved the design, but wasn’t sure I could manage the whole quilt. The shape of the blocks just begged to be made into a table runner instead.
It’s a great way to use up scraps. I think the natural linen adds to the boho feel, but then again, I think linen should be used in everything. Evening gowns? Yup, why not. Bathing suits? They never flattered me anyway. I have had the backing fabric in my stash for a long time and loved it but wasn’t sure where to use it. It’s a fairly big scale print and I didn’t want to wreck it by chopping it up. I love how it works with all the prints on the front.
I’ve put it on sale in my Etsy shop, but I am tempted to keep it. Might have to make a second one for me!
