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?

And here are a couple of detail pics, one showing the back and end.

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.

    My thought are that you should keep it and enjoy it. Maybe you could make another one about half the length for the bazaar? And while you’re at it, do a tutorial?? ;)

    I really like your scrappy border surrounded by the lighter binding, etc.

    I created a quick tut for the table runner. If you leave a comment here asking for it, I’ll send it to you.
