Inspiration from the great outdoors...

It's good to be home again!  While camping in the Canadian 1000 Islands, I managed to do a little hand-applique by lantern light on two little samples for the shop.  Once home, I added the borders and now they are ready to quilt.  This tablerunner is 45-1/2 x 13-1/2.  Here's a closer view of the first one:
They are both from "Juniper and Mistletoe: A Forest of Applique" by Karla Menaugh and Barbara Brackman.
The second one is one of the blocks from the cute folk art quilt in the book (the block pictured on the cover).  This one is 18-1/2 x 16-1/2.

As I unpack and do all the camping laundry, I look forward to catching up with your blogs. 

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)
