I am bridging the generations this week. 

This table runner is made from 'patches' cut by my grandmother (and probably Grandpa too).  I picked out teal and mauve fabrics of which there was an abundance.  Most of them are 80's fabrics. 

I made this for my sister.  The colors will go with the pink walls in her ballroom.  I choose the cloud fabric on the back to match the painted clouds on the ceiling.  It is quilted with parallel lines.  I like the contrast of the old fabric and old patchwork technique combined with the more modern quilting.

The next one is a practice piece, just two pieces of fabric and a binding.  (Still working on learning to machine quilt).  This one is for my son who is doing a steampunk show. 

The fabrics are keys and clocks.  I attempted quilting a clock face in the center with keys and hands mxed into the stippling.  You can just see part of one of the hands in this pic.  Clearly I need more practice, but it was fun to try.
