Runner and Stuff

Hi everyone! Here is a much better picture of the runner I put together the other day for the workshop next week. I'm so pleased I finally did make it up, because while I was at the store after seeing the project one of the Thimbleberries Club girls signed up for it. I think the class is almost full - maybe 2 places left. How fun!

Lucy asked for some more details about the project. There's not a lot to tell really. The outside border squares are just as they come from the charm pack. The light squares in the middle of the braid are light charm squares cut in quarter, and the larger braid pieces are a charm square cut in half. When the braid is assembled, I measured 3" from the centre and squared up the edge of the braid. Super easy. It would be fun to keep going with the braids and borders and end up with a full size quilt too. For wonderful information on how to put a braid together, go to Bonnie's Quiltville website - very informative.

The fabrics I've used are the Rocky Mountain Quilt Collection II, and the Regency Collection I & II, both from Judie Rothermel. I just love her reproduction fabrics.

Last up, Jessica's How about Orange blog is always a great source of fun things. This is no exception: Spell with Flickr ... I couldn't resist!

I love the braiding technique you used in the table runner. It looks great when sandwiched in between the plain squares. I think your class will love it! Let us know how it goes.

Your tablerunner looks wonderful. I tried the braid and mine went wonky, maybe I should try it again. You make it look easy.
