Table runners and placemats

Working on dear friend Johnny's birthday quilt takes up most of my time these days. I'm happy to say I have left to do 3 more blocks... then the top is done! :) I'm going to use flannel for the backing, you know, those cold Norwegian wintry nights... :) I can't show any photos, because Johnny is spying! :)) Him to blame, because he wanted it to be a secret! :)  
I finished a few projects earlier this month, but first now I've had time for taking photos.
A table runner for spring or summer...

... with matching place mats

Another table runner...

The checked center piece is cross-hatched quilted and the floral (zinnia) border is FMQ in a meandering pattern.

Meteo didn't predict very nice weather today, so I guess it's going to be another day snuggling up in front of the sewing machine! :)

Hello Astrid,

Oh I do love your fabric in the middle of the runners and mats, reminds me of seed packets. Hope you have fun with your secret "Johnny" project.

Happy days.

you will be glad for a visit from your old friend I bet - make sure to post of a photo of Johnny with the quilt! I have heard you mention him so much I would like to see what he looks like
