At the retreat, I was able to sew the top up, sandwich and pin baste my table runner. At work during the past two weeks, I was able then to just stitch in the ditch quilt it, and bind it. It is all done by hand. Every last little bit.
its about 14″ by 42″. Just a little larger than the one I was inspired by on pinterest. Which must have been taken down, because I cannot find a link to it now.
It is simply 4.5″ cut blocks of the leaf print, and four patch blocks of the dark green and golden colors, alternating. The backing is the same as the binding, but I did not self bind, I cut and attached it, because – in one area I had a flaw and wanted to cover it up on the backing, so I used a 3.5″ strip of fabric, the largest binding I have ever cut!
I hope to use it on my table for Thanksgiving Dinner, unless it just looks too short, then I will put it on the food table under the serving bowls as a second choice.
How did I do?
