    Table runner

    Hi Ladies,
    First of all, I would like to thank the committee for awarding me with the honor of being the worst photographer in North Carolina. I never get the colors to be true, even using my photoshop program - of course, it may be that I am just a hopeless case.
    Below is the table runner I made today for my daughter. Of course, it is hanging crooked, sigh.


    What I did was sew strips like Jenny did in her tutorial. But I wanted a skinny table runner since DD has a small round table in her dining area. She also decorates in Americana Style, hence, the red white and blue Christmas trees.
    I cut the trees and then free hand stars for their top. I decided to applique these to the red star fabric )I know, you can't see the gold stars), since I didn't have enough fabric to cut the way Jenny did in her tut.
    I can see all my mistakes but know my DD won't see anything but something new for her table. Good thing!

    These pics don't do justice. And they don't look Christmas-y in the pics but in person it just "darling". Thank you Jenny for getting my noodle going.
    Sewing mends the soul.

              Really cute, Blondie! Did you hand or machine applique the trees to the background?

                  Blondie, that is too cute! What a great adaptation on Jenny's project, to use what you have and it turned out wonderful! I admire your talent!

                    Thanks Ladies. I sure wish the pictures were better.

                    Pat, I machine appliqued using the a button hole stitch. Not too close, but not too wide; I don't remember my setting. On my machine it is in the utility stitch button.

                    This worked up real easy and uses up lots of scraps and strings that I just hate to throw out.

                      Bondie - how cute is that? Or should I say "darling". Now I have another great idea for leftover strips. Did you use a jelly roll, or yardage?

                              This is an adorable runner, and makes me think of one I could make with some of my stash! Great job!
