On Christmas Eve morning, I came across these two 12-inch cardinal blocks that I completed some time ago. I decided it was time to do something with them.
If I made just one center block and two triangle ends, I could have a table runner. I started on the center block that very morning.
I really just wanted to get this one done, so I made it very simple. The center block will be covered with a centerpiece when it's on the table anyway.
Throughout the holiday I worked on it when I had a spare hour between cooking, etc.
Sunday I made the binding and spent a couple of hours sewing it to the back by hand.
I put a cardinal bird on each triangular end.
And now I have one less UFO.
Here is the table I set with this runner:
