One Down ... to go

The first of Uncle Trygve's table runners has been
(drum roll please)

Phew! I'm really pleased with it, and although the colours are not ones I would have chosen, I have fallen in love with them (so if he doesn't like it, no problem, I'll have it back!!!)

I haven't progressed far enough out of my comfort zone to have actually quilted it (other than my version of In The Ditch As You Go) but I followed Sandie's Binding lesson on Stash Manicure and L O V E it - the binding is darn close to perfect, and I even managed mitered corners!

3 meters of hand sewing is a bit boring, but I actually watched some TV today while I did the binding, and it does give a much nicer finish than machining.

Now off to finish the Stack and Slash in the same fabrics (or is it a Stack and Whack?) If you know, feel free to remind me of the differences!


  1. Very subtle and neat too. Nice!

  2. So glad it turned out the way you wanted and that you are pleased with it. It looks lovely in the photo - just a pity I won't be able to see it before it goes in the post But next time I visit them I will. xxx

  3. Hello Benta, this table runner is beautiful, I like those colours! I want to make patchworks but somehow just can't start now with Christmas things in my mind...
    I'm happy you liked my coocies...I send you some today with sun...tomorrow they say it's going to snow!?
    Great Idea to make an Advent calender from thee pockets...I have saved them from the shirts I cut for patchworks!
