    Tablerunner

    This just makes me soooo happy, such a great touch of spring on this terribly cold winter day!
    I got the stitching done last weekend, but wasn't able to get all of the threads buried and pics till yesterday/today.
    A wonderful friend gave me the charm pack and I had some matching yardage for the back from another friend cutting back on her stash. They all came together wonderfully.
    Thank You Jenny for the great tutorial on the blog for this, I love it. I am planning to give it as a gift later in the year.....but am tempted to keep it! I have several more planned as gifts too.

          Thanks so much, it was alot of fun to make.
          It's a written and picture tutorial in the MSQC blog. It was very helpful to me, but I am addicted to their video tutorials so I am ever hopeful that there will be one on this project!
          Here is the link for it.

              That sure brightens up a dreary evening - the clouds have moved in here.
              I'm sure whoever gets that will just love it!

                  Love this color combo, Lola! You have done a great job as well! There's nothing like a finished project to bring a feeling of well being to one, is there? Big hugs to you Lola.

                      That does make you happy looking at the bright colors. And I love the way you turn it inside out, so no edging, no cutting the backing 3 inches bigger all around, etc. I think we could all do this!

                              Thank You all! I really enjoyed doing this tablerunner. I had mis-placed the 2nd charm pack of this fabric, but found it this a.m. so now I can get the next one laid out for stitching together.
                              I have at least 2 others planned for gifts. I sure feels good making gifts and getting them done ahead of time.
                              Now, a question about the quilting. The one pictured is only stitched in the ditch, do you like that or should I do some more quilting on it? I had thought about X'ing in each block or a line of stitching on both sides of each seam? Of course, other suggestions are always welcome!
