Very nice! The orange diamonds really "pop". Can't wait to see what color binding you decide to use.
I love this!! I think that I have this pattern and know just the halloween fabrics to use if I have enough. Is it a quilt as you go?
Really cute but 90 minutes??? Yeah right! It is going to be wonderful and fun when done!
I love the color combinations! It took me a day just to figure out how to place the fabrics on my friendship braid then much longer to sew it all together ... 90 minutes is pretty fast !
True and Kathie , I'm so glad to hear that 90 minutes wasn't realistic.It's kind of deflating when I feel like I'm flunking the class! Cowgirl4ever , I heard people saying that it could easily be a quilt as you go however we didn't treat it as such. Kruppcake , thanks I rather like the pops of orange myself with the cornerstones. ZI'm going with a black polka dot binding. Just love polka dots and stripes.
Love your tablerunner. Looks like a 2-day project-and working pretty hard at it!! I love the tablerunner design-allows for lots of cute halloween fabrics!
Terryt1955 Ok so the pattern I have is a little different. Knowing that I think I will try to sew it regular rather than quilt as you go.. then I can decide on the backing later.
Cowgirl4ever , I've never done a QAYG but it sounds so slick and fast. Then again all the quilting will be hidden :(. I want to see your fabric you're going with` make a "new project" and take a picture of it!
Cant' wait to see it. I just inherited a small batch of halloween scraps that would look great in this pattern. Where did you find the pattern?
For all those interested this is a free pattern located at mccallsquilting.com. Just select the Bonuses tab at the top and scroll down to the Halloween Table Runner. I can totally see this in any holiday fabric or ANY fabric to make up a cute relatively fast runner. ( Charlie , Cowgirl4ever , Carolmarie , True , Kathie , Kruppcake , Sewzalot , _Sewnsew)
Terryt1955 I like the way yours looks better. Yours just pops better. But I have printed out the pattern and put it in my to do file.
Love it. Thanks for the tip on the pattern
Omg he is cute!!! Now to the quilt...I love it! Really cute and glad to hear about binding!
What a cutie pie!! (The grandson that is ;) Nice tablerunner too! I love the happy little jack o'lanterns on the back...how fun! :)
What a little cutie your grandie is! Your table runner is fabulous. Thank you for the link.
Terryt1955 this is really cute. Love the design and your fabric choices. You sure get alot of projects done!!! Wish I could be so quick! BTW...grandson..adorable!
Thanks Conniharns ! I think I'm making up for lost time when the kids were young and underfoot. Now they are wondering when this quilting "phase" is going to pass because they want me doing other stuff (like cooking Sunday dinner!). HA!
lol Do you tell them they are old enough to cook it themselves?
Sewnsew , they are more than old enough to cook! And they all do cook but they want me in the kitchen with them like we use to do. I'm kind of obsessive compulsive. When I get involved with something it's all or nothing.And now I can totally indulge this obsession and lovin every minute of it!
Beautiful baby boy! (And table runner)
Terryt1955 It is really lovely that they enjoy spending time with you. I understand completely about all or nothing, too!
Sewnsew , I'm sure there needs to be a support group started for us! On the one hand it's good because you get things done on the other hand everything else goes to crap as it gets shoved aside. I really need to get a sewing room set up so I can close the door on my madness!
Terryt1955 Your grandson is adorable!! Love the finished runner. Do you do machine embroidery? I have a design that I got from Anita Goodesign that is called a Taggy Blanket I think.. its cute though.. just the little ones size.. smiles
Terryt1955 I lied the design is part of the project collection by Anita Goodesign and is called Sweet Dreams
Cowgirl4ever I just checked out Sweet Dreams. How darling. Love the bear! I have machine appliqued in the past but didn't like how stiff everything turned out. I didn't know about cutting out the center part of the fusible webbing!
Terryt1955 I am learning about that stuff too. I have a BOM called Family Reunion and a couple others by pearl Louise and I want them to be perfect if I am going to spend that much money and time.
Cowgirl4ever , yeah when I saw that $39 price tag for the Sweet Dreams pattern I thought that was pretty pricey. I always think I can draw it up myself (what a joke) and then I end up doing nothing.
Terryt1955 I thought the they were pretty pricey too but have found that I really like them. A dealer would sell it to you for $29. The Anita website charges $10 more to encourage you to buy from your local dealer. But I have found some of their disks on ebay for good prices too. Originals not copies of some one elses.
