Something New, Something Old

I was sitting around the other day just thinking.  Thinking 'I sure would like to use more pastels'.  I'm more of a bold, in-your-face color person-but this day I was feeling delicate!

I had some shot cottons that were begging to be used.  I wanted big shapes that were not all the same size.  This is what I came up with.  

13 3/4" x 37 1/4"
I decided I would call this table runner 'Shards' because of the shape of the triangles and the extra pieces on the side.  I used a lovely gray which lets the shot cottons stand out.  

I didn't use a pattern for the triangles, so each one is slightly different from the next.  This one features 10 different colors.  Random geometric quilting mimicking the shapes!

15" x 41"
I also made another 'wave' table runner.  Shot cotton again...14 different colors against a cream background.  I used tarragon green on the back and did my ever favorite 'waves' for the quilting! 

Thank you Crepe Myrtle for the lovely color and make my day seeing your beautiful blooms every day!  

And just because I finished, washed and added hanging gear, I'm showing you the Mini-Quilts one last time!  I'm a sucker for crinkles!

12 3/4" x 17"
Now its time to get back to quilting.  I have cowboys waiting for their final touches!  Have a great day!
