My fern runner

Yesterday, Gord and I drove to Moncton where I planned to pick up some supples. I was very disappointed to find that Fabricville was all out of the canvas that I wanted to paint on.
I did get a large stretched canvas with a coupon from Michael's at least.
And I visited the Fabric Cupboard where I bought some yardage of a Bella solid for my next quilt as well as some batiks in my favourite colors. They were very helpful!
I planned to spend this afternoon finishing the strips on my runner but a friend called asking me to go with her to a little shop about an hour from here. It was her birthday what could I say! So I came home with a couple more fat quarters.
I did get one more set of strips on before she called. There are just two more colors to finish it.

I've cropped it along the lines where it will be trimmed. I can't wait to start quilting it!
I'm connecting to The Needle and thread Network.

I'm really liking the line the small squares make.

Love your batiks Holly! I just finished a table runner with batiks using a tutorial from Jenny Doan (Missouri Star Quilting Co). Thanks for sharing :)

Very nice table topper. Thanks for name dropping a few stores...I have noted them because I will visit my brother in New Brunswick this summer and I will want to shop. When it is a friend's birthday, one simply has to go shopping with her and buy fatquarters ;).

Holly, I really like that when you create a piece of fabric, you seem to get right to doing something with it. I admire that.
Thanks for the compliment on my 'Chickadee and Red Berry' painted panel.
