Not really on my design wall anymore, I finished this Christmas table runner just before New Years. I only had about 6″ of binding left to hand-stitch when we left for Florida and I just didn’t feel like taking it with me. I had plenty of time on the road to sew, but I find it difficult to spread out my “stuff” in the front seat.
This pattern is designed at 40″ wide and meant to utilize the width of fabric. In my case, I didn’t have enough usable fabric between the selvedges to give me the extra I like to have around the edges, so I pieced the back. Problem solved!
I made some little corner labels to use in situations like this when I don’t need to put a whole lot of information on it. It worked well!
I got my husband’s quilt back from the longarmer last week, so I have that to bind after I finish a secret project that I will reveal later.
That’s what’s going on in my studio, visit Judy L’s page to see what everyone else is up to.
