Description

Normally I wouldn't use this bright and "cute" of fabric but since it's going in the care package for my daughter (who is spending her first Christmas away from home) I think the fabric will work. I am using the same pattern as the one I used for my Halloween runner. I love how using different fabric gives it a whole new look.

I'm to the trimming stage where I need to hack off the edges and square it up, the part I dread the most. I don't know why it paralyzes me but it does. It was the same way with my scallop borders on my Shabby Chic Baby Quilt. I am a wuss!

11/08/12 Stayed up late to finish this. Once I was able to trim the jagged edges I felt so motivated. I love my clover clips for putting on binding. Greatest invention ever!

Love your fabrics- they have a vintage feel- just perfect!

I want to get seasonal care packages too .. not that I have a tabel for a table runner. I can completely understand that reluctance to cut / trim it ... Just imagine having to do a zigzag border and cutting will suddenly come as a relieve...

I like this! Nice choice of fabrics, fun pattern!

True

Wonderful and so cheery and LOL Strandkorbtraum has solution for the stress the cutting causes you (and me!)

Cindyloud

Love it! You pick wonderful fabrics!

Mymble Thanks! Now that you say it it does look kind of vintagy.
I have it basted and ready to quilt tonight hopefully at my weekly quilt group.

Strandkorbtraum Haha, you are dead on. I hate zig zag borders to have to deal with. This could be a dresser runner too so no need for a table.

True Thanks. Just the mood I was going for.

I knew this was made by you Terrt!! So very cute. Your daughter is a lucky gal. Me too actually....I have a beautiful table runner by Caribousmom....well there is a funny story behind that ..and I sort of stole it when we (Wendy, Quilt455 and I) had our sewing day yesterday at Caribousmom!!!

Conniharns the cat is out of the bag. If she didn't know before she knows now that you stole it!! I want to see a picture of it please!

One of my other daughters came home this weekend and she fell in love with all the pillows and table runner and decided she gets to bring them back since she is older. So it looks like I'll be cranking out some more! Good thing they were fun to make!

Conniharns

Oh ya....the cat was out before Cathie and I got down the hill...!!! She sent an email.."Hey you stole my table runner". We have laughed and laughed! I guess you will be busy...good thing you like them! They are adorable!!
