Quilt-a-long: Evening Day 1

My table runner is finished! This was one of those surprising times when the project takes you on a journey and most of the time you're not certain where you are going.

As for me I learned a bit at looking at the details, because with a simple piece like this everything is in those quiet details. 

Thanks Sue, without this session of your Christmas Quilt-a-long I would still be wondering what to make for my cousins much less what to actually give them. Oh to have it made, what a thrill! My DH is going to make a wooden box for it that we will give it to them in. Is anyone wishing it for themselves? While I had a couple of rough spots that I didn't like it much I'm pleasantly surprised at how pretty it turned out.

 Believe it or not I finished in just the right amount of time as to have dinner on the table exactly at our regular time. I highly recommend anyone on the fence join us next time. Same place 2nd Saturday of the month through December.

Your cousins are very lucky people. Now, what are you going to make next month?

I love the fact that you did a quilt along I have been away again. This time for a week at the beach, but I just read your quilt aolon posts and am glad that you seemed not only to have fun, but also to make such a great table runner.

I think this is just gorgeous! Your cousins are WAY lucky!

I'm sorry to hear that the whole school fiasco really ruined Jessica's love of learning. I totally hope that she'll have an awesome teacher this year which will help make things better!
