30 something and then some!

Hey, so, I'm all excited I stayed up late the other night and finished some projects! If you follow my twitter account you know I was off at the MSQC for the Friday night sew on the fourth! Sew much fun!

I decided to make myself a table runner for my birthday on the second, it's been a little rough on me, *whisper* I turned 30 this year.
So, I decided I had to do all sorts of fun stuff :)
Naturally my mind went to this table runner by mels own place. But in my head it was called turning 30, hehe. I wasn't about to make myself 42 (the actual number of included triangles) so I left some of the triangles out and used 28 if you count the halves it puts us around 32 which qualifies "Turning 30" in my book!
It came out really cute!
AND... I took some of the left over triangles and made myself a little string of pennants for the back!
If you look close you can see I free motioned it using a version of my signature vines!

I love it and I loved using some of this Fandango by Kate Spain... Love her!


  1. Love, LOVE, LOVE, Hillary! I stayed up late Saturday night finishing a project, too. It was so fun. It's a little canvas easter pail. I got the pattern from Sweetwater. I just don't know what to do with it now that I finished it. Your table runner is gorgeous. I love the fabric. We should have a late night sewing party sometime. I love that you freemotioned your runner. i need to watch you do that. I know I'm rambling, but it's just so lovely. :)

  2. I love it! I can't wait to see what happens at 31!

  3. OH MY GOSH Hillary!! I LOVE your '28' quilt!! Thanks for the shout out, can I put your pic on my blog? It turned out FANTASTIC!!


Leave me some happy thoughts~
