**Found the camera!**Right where I left it *VBS* So here's the picture of MY table runner sewn together. I cut my sub sections at 2", rather than the 1.5" in the directions...so I have a bigger runner. It's 20" X 24".I will be adding a border strip to each end..probably a 4.5" strip, and not the green plaid I had thought I might use. It's just too different.
Just for the heck of it, here is a picture of an 'everyday' runner I use under my sewing machine so it doesn't slip on the table surface. Again, it's about 12 yrs old and going strong.
And this is one of the original ones I made 12 years ago...nice that they don't take much yardage to make up.
And last, but NOT least, here is my adorable new gingerbread man from Julie Q *VBS* She sent me the blue fabrics (right behind him)also. They are 'sample' cuts, definitely WINTER...one has snowflakes, two are blue blenders, and one has mittons and hats, the other(and my favorite) with long red underwear and other winter garments ...LOL I've been browsing my books, looking for a little quilt to make using them. Thanks again Julie!! You made my day!
I managed to get around to a few blogs yesterday, and I see that Norma is making a table runner, and that Angie has hers together and is thinking of doing more. If more of you are doing them, do let me know so I can come over and take a peek!
A day to forget.....
