Scraptastic Tuesday guest post from Diane

After posting the link up for November's link party I got the following message:

Hello Nicky

I would love to post on Scraptastic Tuesdays however I do not have a Blog.
It is possible to partake by emailing my scrappy projects to you or Leanne?

Thank you,

Diane Beavers

Well how could I resist.....and here is Diane and her scrappy project...

In the summer I was gifted for my birthday w/a 12 Fat Quarter Bundle of Cotton+Steel's "Tinsel" collection. I pieced a Window Boxes quilt top, 66" X 76" and it's now off to the Longarmer for quilting as I do not yet possess the skill, or the space in my home for a longarm machine.

What to do with those scraps? Hmmm,,,I have few Christmas decorations for my tables so I cut those scraps into 3.5 inch squares, used my left over sashing in Kona White in between the squares and came up with a table runner!

Quite the novice quilter am I and as a 2015 goal took a free motion quilting class at a local quilt shop. Much practice later I'm still in the "straight line " mode however have graduated to quilting wavy lines.  I love the texture in the boxes w/the wavy line quilting and decided it was enough and left the sashing alone.

The Tinsel runner is backed w/Kona Apple Green and bound with the Navy Pomegranate print in the Tinsel bundle.  A little stitch in the ditch around my 1 inch Navy Pomegrante sashing and it's a finish.

Thank you for inviting me to post on your blog.

Thank you for sharing your project with us Diane!
