I finished the top of my table runner!
Next I made some special corner blocks to help make the whole thing "pop" more.
But then my long sashing pieces were too long.... which I didn't discover until after I'd attached the pinwheels. My fault for being excited and not checking before I got carried away. Easily fixed though.
Also the bow tie and broken dish block sections were shorter than the rest of the runner. Apparently the cutting instructions I used failed to include seam allowances in the finished block size. So I shortened the other sections to fit. It's not like this is going on a bed, where size would be an issue.
The batting is already cut to size. I don't have a picture, but I'm using white flannel. It won't be too bulky to set things on this way. Now I just need to decide on the backing fabric and get it pieced. I have some fabric in my stash that I've been planning to use for this, but the manager of the quilt shop showed me some adorable fabric that has white bunnies and purple flowers on it. I might have to change gears and use my other fabric for the binding only.
So this coming week I'll be getting that figured out and figuring out how I'm going to quilt the applique blocks. I do know that quilting each section will be it's own project. I'm doing this by hand and it might take a while.
I also (in theory) have to start stitching on some fine linen this week. It's (hopefully) going in the Judged Show in May.
That's it for this week. Catch everyone next time!
