Where is Carolyn?

Tadah! I am right here! I have been a busy little bee. I finished my table runner pattern. I made up a design and sewed my block for Melinda. I made more paper pieces to add to my jars. And I - oh, that was it. Felt like more. 
Lets start with Melinda's block:
Here is my original design
 I realized as soon as I started cutting though that I did not have enough of the one fabric I intended for the outer triangle so it had to be broken down to 4 using more of the white fabric which was provided.

Here is the block with everything done except for stitching in the umbrella handles.

Here we go, all done with handles.
Melinda - you are going to lose the points on the triangles I fear as my block is over the 12 1/2" as it should have turned out. I hope my applique will make up for my boo boo.
In the mail for you today.
Its getting late - so I will post the pics of the table runner tomorrow.


  1. Carolyn, that is a fabulous block! I'm guessing Melinda will love it as well! Thanks for sharing, it looks great.

  2. Wow I love your applique, who's going to notice a few points, they will be too busy looking at the picture.

  3. The block is gorgeous. I love the applique and the fabrics. Lucky Melinda!

  4. Lovely. Just lovely. You are so talented!

  5. Darling block! Melinda is a very lucky gal!!

  6. Love it, Carolyn! I think she will be very happy! (If she is not, send it to me, and I'll find a use for it, starring in a quilty project! Wink!)
