Table Runner Time

After last night’s ‘all press & cut, no sew’ sadness, I decided I’d work on a quick little project that I could (theoretically) finish today. I started cutting wedges of 3 different fabrics that I have had waiting in the wings for several months.

Speaking of wings, I’m totally winging it for this runner (and potential future coasters), but it’s working well so far.

After 3 different layouts, I went with the one Gret suggested. I liked them all, so it was good to have someone give me the little push to just choose one. When I had it all sewn together, it was just a little shorter than I had hoped, so I will add one more tan at each end.

I wasn’t able to complete it today because I’ve got a hot date tonight and we’re taking the kids to grandma’s overnight.

Maybe I’ll finish it on Sunday. Maybe not.

About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter
