      I was at the store the other day scouring the magazine rack when my eye fell upon this gem. I snatched it up and couldn't wait to get home and read it! 

It has a wide range of projects in it. Starting out with Kitchen & Dining it goes onto Quilts, Gifts & Accessories, Bags & Totes and Home Decor. I really want to do almost every project in this publication. The first one I picked out was this fabulous Table Runner.
My Mom said how much she loved this and would love it in Reds and Purples. Reds and Purples it is with some Gray thrown in the mix.

Here it is up on my design wall.

 This was a fast project and was fun and easy sewing.

 I had asked a couple of girlfriends what they thought about the colors choices and they each told me what they didn't particularly like. I axed a few, but decided to keep these. I really love the way it's coming together at this point.


 Here it is all quilted! I still have to bind it and so it's still a WIP, but I love the way it turned out!!

 I did some Echo Quilting for the first time and really Love it! I can't wait to get the binding on it!!

I'm linking up to W.I.P Wednesday and can't wait to see what everyone is working on. Have a great Wednesday and if you haven't' signed up for my giveaways stop on over :)
