I just had to have some of Riley Blake's Boo to You fabric, and so when I realized a few days ago that I hadn't used it all, I decided it should be a table runner.
You see, I really haven't gotten to that point in my life where I decorate for each season or holiday. I know, I really need to start working on it. Especially for Christmas. But anyway, we have a nice long dining table and not much on it (except the usual paints and markers), so I thought we'd add some fun and color!
I just made three log cabin style blocks and a pieced backing and out came a table runner! So happy I had it finished in time to enjoy it yesterday.
It was also the first time I decided to machine stitch the binding on. I remembered Rita from Red Pepper Quilts does such a lovely job on hers, so I dashed over to her tutorial and gave it a shot. I really love how quick it was, but definitely would need more practice. I think I tried to sew over one missed spot 3 times! oops!
