I am trying to finish up all the items I made in '08. I love the colors of this table runner, but I wasn't sure how to finish it off, so I put it away last spring.
That's not a good thing to do because I almost always end up using the fabric that I should have saved to finish the project. I usually like my runners to have a pointed end, but this time I felt I needed to finish off that green square so a straight edge is what I ended up doing.
I think I like the 4 little squares in a row. I am not so fond of the unfinished squares on the sides, but they will have to remain as triangles because this thing is as wide as I can go for a table runner. I don't think I have any more of the rust fabric, so I have no idea just yet what I will do for the binding. Right now I will just work on getting it machine quilted.
I designed this runner to match a set of salad plates I own. When I get it totally completed, I will do a tablescape and post it to that blog.
Right now I am going to watch the historic election returns.
Happy Halloween - Here it is Halloween 2015 and I have done absolutely Nothing! No table, no Halloween décor...............so sad......................... Last Halloween...
