MEET MY FRIEND JEAN DABELL

ISN'T SHE JUST LOVELY? LOOK AT THAT AWESOME SMILE!


SHE HAS CREATED ANOTHER WONDERFUL PATTERN FOR US. IT IS IN PDF FORMAT, so instant gratification. It will be at sold at INCHWORM FABRICS. Ooopsss, I noticed that she does not have it listed yet, I also know she was having computer troubles...so if you would like it, just leave a comment and I will get back with you....the price is really inexpensive.

So all that being said.....Here is my version of her pattern (mine is not quilted or the blanet stitch around the stars and scallops).



I used my Go cutter for the stars, so they are differnt than hers. I used some of my Crazy 8 honey bun (instead of cutting strips or using scraps...la...zzzzzyyyy). I also used Steam A seam like no body's business. I also will use the blanket stitch where she used a beautiful running stitch on her stars and the scallops.

Two different women, two different techniques, ending up with two awesome table runners.

Thanks Jean for this fun, easy pattern!!

Great pattern. Jean is very creative. I like the way you both used different techniques but achieved the same result.

Both table runners look amazing. I love how some quilters mix the shades of a color instead of using the same fabric. It gives the stripes some depth and makes the runner fun. Great job!

A very sweet tablerunner Barb :0) I love that quilters "do it" their way, makes it much more exciting LOL.

No! You're not lazy..you are smart...using the GO cutter for your stars and honey bun for stripes..good thinking and it turned out great!

Carol R. said...

That is a lovely pattern! And, no, you are not lazy, you are one smart quilter. Your process allows you to speed up the finish and get on to another lovely project. (You do have another one waiting, don't you?)
