Butterflys a fluttering and Ladybugs a crawling

 Oh my but it feels great to be back at my longarm again.  First up I pieced, quilted, appliqued and bound this fun butterfly table runner. It's from my newest pattern called All A Flutter, you can find the pattern HERE.  It is so easy and quick to whip up.  The border fabric I had in my stash, purchased a while back specifically to make this runner. A quick trip to the store yielded the other fabrics to coordinate. I love the bit of stripe that I found for the binding.


I pieced the lady bug runner a couple weeks back while I was in Arizona. It was the first piece I put on my longarm upon returning. The pattern for this is by Suzanne's Art House. 

Yes I went to Arizona again to visit family, what a great time we had.  Here is one of the things we did while there. Such beautiful country down there and one can really get around and see things in an ATV.

I really enjoyed the break but it's time to buckle down and get back to work.  Both my Etsy shops are open and quilting ensues!  My plan today is to work on a panel for the panel challenge over at Prairie Moon. Tomorrow I will be working on a tutorial for Accuquilt. It's been a whole year since I wrote one so it will be a challenge to relearn how to do that!  Then there are a couple of blog hops I signed up for. You can see those at the top of my right sidebar. The sewing machine will be humming, oh and I need to take one of them in for a cleaning today.

  4. Your trip looks like it was so much fun! Love the table runners, especially the ladybug. I've got a soft spot for lady bugs except when they try to colonize my house.
