A Supplement!

Sally's design is a supplement to the April issue of American Patchwork and Quilting magazine!
It's called Flirty Flower Baskets. This table runner looks great from any spot in the room with the fun and flirty patchwork flower baskets filled with yo-yos and buttons to create an interesting texture. The editors decided to include it as an 8 page insert to their special interest publication.
She forgot to take any photos before she sent it off to the magazine, so we're using the cover of the supplement to show it off to you.

Here's a close-up of the yo-yos. The instructions include some great tips for making yo-yos.

The editors did such a wonderful job of showcasing our fun project and have included a number of tips for the aspiring sewer/crafter to make the table runner so that the result will turn out amazing. This is a great project to use up all those little fabric scraps that you've been saving. 
Another fun idea that is included is their "Color Option" where the table runner is made with an entirely different fabric selection in different colors to show the reader another option.
Look for the April issue of the American Patchwork and Quilting at stores now!

Happy sewing!
Susan and Sally
