Another Addition to my Addiction!

I maybe, sorta have an addiction to making table runners! I mean they are adorable, they can work with lots of patterns, and ummm...I have lots of tables lol. It just seems to work! Plus they are perfect little thank you gifts! Yea..they are just perfect period.

Oh and I made this one with HSTs ...which, by the way are also perfection! They are quick, easy, fun, and cathartic! They can be used in a bunch of different designs depending on how you lay them out, they are just lovely. Here is my newest little runner :)


I am having trouble with my corner darnnit, it is not lying perfectly flat...there is that little stupid bumpy part right on the outside edge and its driving me nutso! I do not do traditional binding so I guess I need to suck it up and try again to learn and maybe that will give me less trouble on the corners?


The finished runner ... in my favorite colors of course! :)  Even my dh loves it! It is in our family room. It makes me smile everytime I walk by it! I think its, a keeper.


What have you been working on lately? Anything good? Tomorrow is Wednesday, my favorite post of the week, WIP! I can't wait to see what all my bloggy friends have been working on!

  1. I use the tutorial for binding from Crazy Mom Quilts. Those corners can be a "make or break" situation though sometimes;/

    Love the fabrics for this runner! You are right about table runners being great gifts!!
