Celebration Skinny

I had a few scraps lying around (okay I have literally tons of scraps!)
I decided to make a skinny with Celebration by Sandy Gervais.  I quilted this one myself as well.
Still practicing my meandering and free motion.
I'm totally in love with this fabric line and buy it whenever I find it!
 But it's a couple years old and somewhat hard to find.
Anyone know a quilt shop that still has Celebration?

Great way to use up scraps! Love your skinny!

How cute! And I feel your pain about finding older fabrics - by the time I see a quilt in a magazine, the fabric line is almost impossible to find! I'm having that trouble with Fresh Cottons right now....

You're stippling looks great and this is a wonderful idea of using up scraps! I love the colours you used!

I love your little runner...too cute and too love the "Celebration" fabrics. We had some "Celebration" in our shop not too long ago but's it's all gone now. I need to make your little runner! I'm off to a quilt retreat tomorrow as a matter of fact....maybe I'll bring your little runner along and finally make one. Have a great day!

There is a store in Apple Valley that may have some and I actually have quite a bit, I made a quilted diaper bag for a gift... and may have an extra Spring panel, too. I'd be up for a take a photo of what you have/see if you want to swap any? I know I have more than I need.

Doing really well with your quilting at home...practice, practice is what I always say!

I actually have some big pieces of this line...was going to make a quilt for my daughter but she thought it was too young-looking for her...let me know if you need any! Oh, and love this quilt!

Love it! For some reason, I am in love with table runners right now, and this is one of my favorites. That's not to say I've made any . . . I just love looking at them! LOL

Very nice! I like that look and never heard of that fabric line but it's so sweet. I'm putting this runner on my list. Maybe I'll make it square and use it under my lamps in my living room. Hmmmm....

You know, I love that fabric line too...love it. I have some that I have been hoarding just knowing the minute I use it, I will discover an even more special project that I'd wish I'd save it for. I know. You probably think I am crazy.

Love your runners. The fabrics are so pretty and a good way to use all the scraps.

Annie said...

LOVE the skinny - looks fantastic!

I was reading your post from April about all the table runners you want to give for CHristmas. I make pillow cases for the kids in my life. I give them their first pillow case on their birthday or Christmas with a letter explaining that once a month for one year they will be getting a pillow case. I tell them that they have been enrolled in "The Pillow Case Of The Month" club These cases are seasonal or novelty prints. I thought that you might like this idea to use with your runners. The people who are receiving your runners would have something fun to look forward to all year.

Hi Vicky,
I have 7 or 8 bolts left of the Celebrate Spring line that are being put on my website this Thursday. You can go to www.thehometownquilter.com to find it. Hope this helps :o) Your runner is adorable!
