    !0 Minute Table Runner and Plano Quilt Show

    The Plano Quilt Show in Plano, Texas was yesterday and today. I went yesterday for my first go around and then back today to get the things I wish I had purchased and didn't.

    A vendor new to the show this year was Desperate Quilters from Keller Texas. What a great group of women. The were so friendly and patient with me. They taught me how to make a 10 minute table runner using the Utah State pattern and a reversible tote bag from Allpeoplequilt. I purchased some fabric from them to make the table runner, and then went back today to get buttons. They had red paisley's to match my fabric! I made the table runner up at midnight last night in less than 10 minutes.

    Crooked Creek Quilt Shop had wonderful stencils, and they were great about explaining how to look within your stencil to find even more ways to use it and get the most out of the stencil, and the best way to get rid of the blue pen stencil marks.

    Just Jennifer is always one of my favorite stops. She had a great turtle pin cushion and some little turtle pins this year that came home with me.

    Fat Quarter Cafe had some great coordinating fabrics for my stash to make the reversible totes I am going to try, and some great advise on a pattern I purchased.

    And the boys will not need to do any Christmas shopping this year as their adopted Tia Loni bought a kit I wanted from the Material Girl Fabrics booth and presented them with the bill, but she told them they could pay on an installment plan.

    There were some other little gadgets purchased here and there, but the ones above were my favorites.

    I am going to make up 10 Minute Table Runners for the church bazaar in Thanksgiving and Christmas colors.

    Very pretty! They make quick easy hostess gifts at holiday time.
    If you could choose to be anything choose kindness.

        Aren't those table runners great! I love yours. Today while quilting at the church, my girlfriend made 3 of them for gifts. One was seashells in the middle and the other 2 were old time Santas. I made up a bunch of them in Autumn and Christmas colors for a craft market too last year. I have more to make to try to sell this year.

        Hugs,

              Ginny B,
              I finished the runner in 8 minutes, but didn't have the buttons until today. If you have the 1/2 yard and 1/3 yard fabric cut, it goes really fast. Here is a link to the pattern: 10 Min. Table Runner

                I have made a few of these; only alteration I did was quilt around the edges instead of the button; reason being at my house someone would for sure set a glass on that button! Other than that I love this pattern...quick and easy and a great emergency gift....what could be better than that!
