Guest Post at Sew Can She

It's finally time to let that cat out of the bag!


Do you know how hard it is for me to keep a secret?!!

How exciting!  Back in March, I was invited to write a guest post at Caroline's Sew Can She blog.  If you don't already know, Caroline shares free daily sewing tutorials.  Her blog boasts of an incredible archive of sewing tips and quilting projects.






This Sweet Watermelon Table Runner has been completed for a while now, but I had to hold off on revealing it until now.  I am sharing the free pattern as today's featured tutorial.


Didn't I warn you that those Equilateral Triangles were addictive?!!


I consider Caroline to be my number one source for all things sewn.  She's friendly, fun and such a wonderful fountain of inspiration!  She recently authored an incredible new sewing project book, Just for You, coming this fall!  And now she is planning and sharing a dream getaway sewing retreat!!!


Please show Caroline some Sew Fresh love.  Drop in to read my guest post.  And while you're there, make yourself at home and check out all the practical information and inspiring projects she offers!




Keep On Quilting On!

Loved this tut....again! You sure make everything seem so easy. Your table group is sweet and perfect for a cheery place setting.

How awesome is this?! You chose perfect fabrics for the watermelon slices, but I think my favourite part is the ANTS! And I hate ants because they're taking over my house at the moment (looking forward to winter when they hibernate in the rain...). I've been thinking about making a new runner for my table (my current ones are either too small or too big).
