I am very pleased to have this finished;
|Can you spot the mistake?|
Especially as I am 'unsewing' a quilt at the moment!
My lovely MCM Bee ladies made me
"Stepping Stone" blocks,
when I was Queen for July!
A quilt for Christmas is not very useful in a
Southern Hemisphere summer,
so I decided a table runner was a more practical
and photographed it in the staff common room at
the school where I live....
the school where I live....
I love the back as much as the front.
I think I need a big table like this one,
so I can really appreciate it!
Love it, mistake and all. Those colours are beautiful and the stitching and stripy binding are perfect.
It looks fabulous! At first glimpse, I thought this was a Christmas banner ... What a great idea to turn your Bee blocks into this humongous Christmas table runner, I love it!!
It looks lovely Susan. Great idea to make a runner. Enjoy your week : )
It looks great - warts (mistake) and all... you are right, a runner is a lot more practical for our Christmases on this side of the world :-)
An enviable finish, Susan. Gorgeous design for a runner - the design and colours are a perfect match (and you can't top the charming appeal your hand quilting adds). I'm just smitten with this beauty!
That really is a perfect Christmas table runner, but will you be brave enough to let people spill red wine and gravy on it? I know I would be nervous about staining such prettiness!
I really love the way this turned out! Also the way you surrounded the back block with the signature blocks is awesome. I must remember that, as my goal for 2016 is to finally complete the MCM blocks I have accumulated so far!
It turned out beautifully Susan!!! You're awesome to incorporate our mistakes ;-)) I love the glimpse into your school. Such a lovely place to hang out. xoxoxo
Great way to use the blocks regardless of the oops. It looks great on the table. (You may have to borrow that one!)
I found the staff room tables great for basting when I needed to do a big quilt.
There are some great pieces of furniture there for quilty photography. What is the backing fabric?
It's gorgeous and the mistake is so minor, I never would have noticed if you hadn't mentioned it. I agree, the back is gorgeous in its own right. What a lovely finish!
Really beautiful and festive!
This runn r is looking vely
Oh boy auto correct really messed up. Your runner is lovely
Love this runner! I made a red/white runner some years ago, and every Christmas I'm happy to see it again. I'll be that your creative will be much the same--a treasured friend to greet each Christmas season. I loved the photos of it not only on the table, but also draped across the sofa--it really brings a festive touch wherever it is!
