My sister loves this table runner pattern and uses it all the time. It looks pretty good with the Jinny Beyer border fabric.
I made this for my daughter 5 years ago, when she first started teaching. I wasn't a quilter then...I was just starting out. But I was pretty good at applique, having made that HGTV Strolling the Block monthly applique block quilt, and I saw this pattern and figured I'd give it a go. I even quilted clouds into the sky (I thought I was so darn clever, heh heh).
I should have had the foresight that my daughter would not be 'ms. entwistle' forever and not satin-stitched each of those letters to the background, but what's done is done, and now needs to be undone....she's 'mrs. reed' now.
I'm thinking I'm going to cut a panel of fabric, back it with a cotton batting (better to cover the existing background), and fuse/stitch it over top, and quilt around the letters to try to make it appear to be part of the piece rather than a patch.
Check back tomorrow and see how it turned out.
My work here is done.....just wanted to give you another opportunity to win the drawing (smile).
