Tour de Fibre 2012

This morning I realized that Hanne and May Britt had started a challenge for those of us quilters who like to combine the cycling sport and quilting. Since I am in my summer house at the moment and since it has been raining cats and dogs the last days I would like to join.

I have been sewing the last days and my first work was a tabletopper from Kquilt. I made five blocks but now I have to take a break due to lack of fabric. I have an appointment in the town on Tuesday so then I will go home and collect the fabrics needed. However, I did more sewing today. All the leftovers from the tabletopper were cut in 2 1/2” squares. Some tiny strips in yellow were put in between the squares to make the potholders a bit bigger. I have to wait to finish them until I have been home to collect the wadding. I am now hand sewing the binding of my first made potholders which were also leftovers from an earlier project.

The final table runner is this. I liked it very much.
