Blogger's Dinner Party

Have you seen Kate's blog Needle & Spatula?  Well, I'm a big fan.
I love knitting and cooking/baking in addition to quilting,
so it's always fun to see what she comes up with!  Her latest project is this:
Bloggers' Dinner Party
Pretty fun idea, huh?

And here is what I made:

This idea of a quilt-as-you-go-tablerunner has been on my list for awhile, and so with the help of 2 little people, I sorted through my scrap bin and found a rainbow of colors!
  It was pretty quick to whip up, and fun, too!

My initial plan was to arrange our colored pencils in little jars according to color, and display this on our dining room table (which is mostly our art space).
But see that little white paw in the corner?

Unfortunately, our adorable fluffy friend Tallulah decided that the tips of the colored pencils would be fun to snack on, and she broke off a bunch before I decided that this little display idea was NOT going to work.  Bummer.  So the pencils are going back to a different shelf, and we'll just have to enjoy the table runner by itself!


  1. Would it help to turn the pencils upside down? Probably not but worth a try to get such a pretty display.

  2. Very cute! Isn't it funny how our pets control our choices sometimes!

  3. CUTE!!! I think I must have one... :)

  4. This is lovely Michelle! So fun that it is quilt as you go - great idea. Thanks for joining in the dinner party! :)

  5. I love your idea of displaying pencils on your gorgeous table runner. Why don't you find some large mason jars (or similar with lids) and display this way. That way kitty can look but not eat.

  6. naughty kitty - lovely table runner!

  7. hahaha!! that's what happens here without a cat! : )

  8. Such a pretty table runner! I love the rainbow. If it had been my kitty he would have enjoyed knocking over the pencils.
