Bright sunshine washed out the colors a bit.
The walking foot is my best friend for quick and simple quilting! Certainly the tablerunner could have been more heavily quilted in areas, but I'm overall pleased with how it turned out.
Lots of stitch in the ditch on this one too. Hope someone likes it! I have another batch of these pink and green block packages from JoAnn's to put together in probably exactly the same way.
We had a very busy afternoon at the shoppe, lots of shoppers and looky-loos. The day was tinged with tragedy, however, as I learned that a nighttime fatal car accident had taken one of our fellow crafters, along with her husband, last weekend. I had three training sessions before starting regular shifts, and one of them was with this 50-something lady, who I enjoyed meeting very much and was looking forward to getting to know better. We were supposed to work the day's shift together. Instead, her replacement and I spent time gathering up all her items for sale, combing the store for her jewelry, quilts, purses/totes, and decorated T-shirts, to return to her family. The accident was so significant, involving three vehicles, that several days later the police department shut down the major intersection at night so they could take digital measurements with special instruments to try to recreate the exact path of the vehicles, their speed, and try to determine if a red light had been run. I had been reading about it in the paper for the past few days, never dreaming I knew one of the victims, since they did not name them until the article yesterday. So awful!
