I worked yesterday and today on this, something I just love. I don’t know if I CAN sell it at the bazaar but that was the original intent. And we’re not even doing Christmas traditionally this year, so we wouldn’t even need a runner. sigh. Anyone have any soothing, solving words? Here’s the full frontal. The inspiration came from here, a post from last November. If you go look, I made some changes.
This table runner measures 60″ x 17″. Any ideas what it should sell for, if I do sell it?
If you click to enlarge, you’ll be able to see the machine quilting. I put a star on top of every tree. Looking at the pictures now, I may go back and stitch in the ditch on the outside of the white border. I love the scrappy outside border. I don’t usually make light bindings but it seemed the right thing this time.
I didn’t have time to take the pictures and post about what I did the day before yesterday, but I did work on my friend’s apron made from the mantel decoration panel. The panel was a half circle. We decided to cut it in half, add a bib from a matching fabric, a neck strap that adjusts (using a couple of D-rings) and nice long ties.
I haven’t done the other one yet because she might like a slightly differently shaped bib on the next one. She’s out of town but will be back in a couple of days.
The bib is lined with the same fabric. The bottom of the apron has a nice rolled hem made with my serger.
