Raspberry Lemonade

Raspberry Lemonade Tablerunner
16" x 44"
Sharon V. Rotz

I love the ever changing seasons in Wisconsin. It has been very warm here and the humidity has been high. I need to get out of my studio and enjoy summer's finest. There are a multitude of things to do in the garden, on the water, or just relaxing on the deck.

I am blaming the joys of summer for my lack of ambition when I think about quilting. I will enjoy touching flannels and cuddle up to some quilt batting when the temperatures dip. Today, when the sun heats up and the flowers begin to droop, I'll lean back in my chair on the back porch. In my hand will be a summertime favorite, raspberry lemonade.

This tablerunner combines delightful raspberry fabrics and soft greens pieced into blocks. With a bit of machine applique, cone flowers are added to the ends of the tablerunner. A bit of rickrack stitched into a seam and machine quilted swags are finishing touches. (This and other patterns are available through my website
