July Quilt Project

This month, I have been trying not to purchase much fabric, knowing that the QuiltMinnesota.com shop hop is the first week in August (this Friday actually). So when I was searching for a small piece of last years fabric, I ran across a table runner / wall hanging sample in a shop that I really liked. So I brought the kit.

Then, because I’m cheap, I did not purchase the pattern but memorized it. It was a simple pattern. When I got home and prepped the fabric and laid out what I was going to do.  I had also purchased 1 extra fat quarter of the background fabric on the chance that I might do something a little bit different with the pattern.

So when I had the material laid out I noticed that it went really well with the Quilt Minnesota fabrics from last year. So since I had some extra I used it. I got 2 table runners/wall hangings out of the kit with a few scraps thrown in.

Neither of these is the exact pattern that was at the shop, but I like how they both turned out. You will notice that I have them sandwiched together for quilting – I am trying to learn some actual quilting techniques.

Finished sizes should be about:
Smaller/Left one 11″ w x 32″ L
Larger/Right one 15″w x 44″ L
