Making Runners!


I've been making table or end of bed runners using a bundle (6 x FQ) of light to dark fabrics plus a half metre (60" long) for the backing. They are so quick to do and so effective. 

Because I wanted to do a pattern for them I asked a friend to try it out to make sure it made sense and the two below are the ones she did. She even used a Rainbow bundle to get the same effect but in a variety of colours. 

It is a lovely sunny day today though icy cold! We are off to Exeter for the Spring Quilt show on Thursday so I am hoping the weather will remain dry and perhaps a tad warmer. We will be staying in the motor home so need it to be warm! The gas is good but we haven't tried it yet in icy conditions!

I'm looking forward to meeting up with old friends and making new ones. See you there!
