When I use the words "so stinkin'" cute, I'm usually talking about a baby - Beth's Mina and Tessa, neice Jen's baby Henry, niece Laura's little ones. But this time I'm going to use these words about a table runner I just made. This is so stinkin' cute! It is 52" by 17". The batting I used was InsulBrite, which means this table runner can also serve at a hot pad. Here's how this runner started yesterday:
I started with 2.5" strips, a total of 8 reds and a total of 8 greys. Then I stripped them together. Fellow guildster Terri told me about this clever use of strips by Three Dudes - and this link is on You Tube. I've been wanting a new table runner, and this seemed like the perfect occasion to try this technique. I used scraps on the back of this runner - the Mo Household needs both sides of table runners. I may add some more quilting later. Meanwhile, this is so stinkin' cute!
(A special thanks to Holly, Melissa, and Mimi who gave me some of these fabrics!)
