I love the thought of decorating with quilts, textiles and of course, handmade things. I'm not one to follow trends anymore, but instead, follow my heart with things that say, "Welcome. I'm so glad you're here. Let's sit and chat over a cup of coffee."
So recently, while thinking of my next Folk Art Fusion design, I got to looking at my dining room table. (The quilt that's normally on the hanger is out on loan to a quilt shop. Hmm... what can I make for it's spot)
Mr. Veggie Soup bunny looked lonely in the middle of my giant table. He needed something to ground him, add some more fun and whimsey.
Here's a sneaky peaky of what's to come this Thursday. Not a table runner, but a table topper. It could also be used as a wall quilt. I truly love decorating with quilts. First, it's really fun to make them! Second, the sense of accomplishment when you make something with your own hands. Third, you can change them out as often as you like and they don't take up a lot of storage space. Finally, there are not hundreds of thousands of the same thing all over the world stamped "Made in China." They are made by you, with love, passion and the joy that comes with creating.
Please join me and the bunnies here this Thursday when we are delighted to kick of the "Dare To Dresden" blog hop with our friends.
See you then!
