Some more Farmgirl vintage fun

Yesterday I found a fun tutorial to make a cute pincushion at Lori Holt's blog Bee In My Bonnet
I have been making some Apron Springs blocks, and had a stack of bonus blocs to make this pincushion, so it was fast and fun to make. I have seen a lot of these pincushions made by others on Instagram and just love how they all turned out with lots of different fabric and color choices. I will for sure make a few more of these!

Yesterday I also pieced together some of the Haystack blocks I have been working on, and decided to make another small table runner. I used a purple air erasable pen to mark my quilting lines:

Basted it with some basting pins:

Quilted it with Aurifil 40 weight cotton thread:

Clean cut the whole piece and today I attached the binding on by machine and sew it down by hand:

TA DA! A brand new table runner for me :OD Love how it turned out!
I'm on to painting the dresser I will decorate with the table runner. I am painting it with a nice aqua, and these fabrics will look so great on it :oD

I really got my sewing mojo back thanks to making these small projects. I think I got a little bit tired of making only large quilts that I spent weeks and months to finish. I will enjoy some more of these smaller projects during the Summer Holidays, and just have fun making a few things with these happy colors. 

Happy sewing!

So colorful and good looking projects! I know, it is so good to work with smaller things from time to time.

Härliga tygval du har i både nåldyna och löpare, jätteläckert!!!! Kanske du skulle sy några väskor som omväxling, de går så snabbt att få färdiga och är skoj att sy :o)
