Summer Days Table Topper

Summer days are definitely gone around here…it’s freezing outside!  If you pick up the latest Quilts and More magazine you’ll find some summery projects made from Oh Clementine.
There is a quilt pattern by Carrie and an adorable apron by Patty in it, along with some other great projects (love the sewing caddy Monica!).
You can find a free pattern for this table runner on the All People Quilt website here.  You can still find Oh Clementine in Quilt Shops, or bundles here, and here.
Now back to my normal spot for the day….we sit by the fireplace and watch Frozen for the 1246351st time, Sophie eats frosted flakes out of a bag, the dog begs for her frosted flakes, Ryan makes potty noises during all the songs so Sophie will scream, and I’m trying to figure out what to start for dinner and planning a cub scout activity.   It’s the best.  :)

    Enjoy every moment with your kids. It changes so fast. Last month I got to visit 2 of mine out of state and the best part of the weekend was eating Chinese take-out and watching Mulan with them. It was great.

    Hey, Mulan is my favorite Disney Princess. We are telling you the truth….it does go fast….enjoy!

    Oh so cute! Reminds me of my granddaughters and their
    Doggy. Cherish those memories. Very nice quilts and ideas. It is a -17 here in SW Mont. Keep warm 😊

    Ha ha! I don't have any boys so I don't know the joys of potty humor, but I can only imagine! I picked up some extra of that red seed stripe a few weeks ago. I think it will make a pretty binding for a future project!

    Darling table topper and one I can make right away…thanks for the inspiration!!
    Darling kiddos too and everyone is right…you're gonna miss this! I have been caught watching Disney movies…lol with no little one around to blame it on…haha! I have not seen Frozen yet…better steal my little niece for the day and get caught up on my "movies". Nothing better than snuggling with little ones and my imagination is making me chuckle at the potty noises…LOL!
    I was not ready for my empty nest and it took me quite a long time to remember what I used to do…! But the years go by and all of a sudden you have the most precious grandbaby ever! :)! Life is Good!

    I just got the magazine today and your spread looks great. I think that table runner would look awesome as a doll quilt. Thanks for the great ideas!
