The table runner runs on!

Well I couldn't wait for the advice to come through I just have to get on and finish this table runner - it has an impetus of it's own!


I picked not red but a deep pink for the accent border - I think it is Kona Pomegranate!  And made a scrappy outer border!


The top is complete!









My hubby, who doesn't actually give me much feedback on my projects, said he liked it better without the borders!   I think they lift it and finish it off!  Just hope you don't think I've ruined it...?





On the back I want large quick log cabins so I can hide my less than perfect quilting and the job will be done!


I really like it and you know what that means - I won't want to let it go!  But partner if you love it then I may just manage to wave it off!


Next stop is to get on with the goodie - there may be a choice here - a mini hoop with a FM robin in it or a feltie elf - though now I'm thinking a reindeer may be more appropriate....?

  15. The scrappy border is great and I love that you used pink instead of red...it's a nice touch.
    I am doing a disappearing nine patch for my mother's quilt and when I laid the blocks out and asked what my husband thought he's like "Is there suppose to be a pattern." My reply "No, not really." His response "It looks jumbled." lol....oh well...I love him anyways!

  19. I wasn't sure what I should think about this table runner. To much white... But now with the borders it is really nice. It adds colour and makes it look more finished. Great job!
