July 28th 2013
Here is another update of my projects for the Simply Retro Quilt Along, I have two finished!

This first project in her book is called “Swell.” I used a patriotic color scheme for a Fourth of July table runner, here’s a flashback on how I got started.

A table runner that measures 16″ x 52″.

I think the binding wraps up the theme nicely.
I wasn’t going to do the usual stipple, but I had to so I could try out this new darning foot I got on Ebay at this shop for my vintage Kenmore sewing machine. This was her first quilting job and it came off without a hitch!



It’s perfect for covering a little wear and tear on the patio table.



Here is the “Retro” quilt all finished, it’s the second project in the book. It just needs washing to make it soft for the baby, coming on August 7th or sooner.
Below is my daughter’s contribution for size comparison.

This is the front.

This is the back, so fun!

One side for playing, the other for napping.


I quilted it in a wave motif, of course.

 Don’t forget to visit Jana’s blog and look for the quilt along pics from other quilters. Please pop back in next week, right here, for a look at more projects from Simply Retro.
