2 more table runners done!

I was a bit under the weather this weekend so didn't get any quilting on the nativity wall hangings done, but I did manage to get the 2 other tabler runners sewn! I love how they all turned out!


Well then I decided that I had to do something with my scraps from trimming the braids. Geez, Tonya and Bonnie have gotten to me! YIKES! So first I sewed the scraps into "new fabric" pieces.

I"ll show you what I did with those tomorrow!

You accomplished quite a bit for someone who was under the weather! I can hardly wait to see what you have made with the leftovers!

Gosh Dawn, you've been super busy, I love the table runners, and to use the cut off triangles - well, that's just visionary!

These are really lovely Dawn - probably just the sort of thing to potter with when you're feeling a bit rough - gentle stitching with manageable sized pieces repeating the same maneouvres so you don't have to think too much

What great tablerunners! I find using the "crumbs" from a project fun but it drives my DH crazy - he can't understand why I would fiddle with those tiny pieces when I have a room full of fabric upstairs! men....

Love the scrappy table toppers, just my colours. You did a lot of sewing for someone felling under the weather.

Andrea said...

These are great - both the design and use of colours. I clicked for a bigger picture and drooled over some of the fabrics you used. Not half bad for some-one who didn't feel too good - lol !
