Last post I did say I had sewn two table-runners since I am now able to get up and around on my crutches!
As it is October, the other table-runner is Halloween themed! I had a lot of fun with this one, but I must credit the very talented Jody at Pleasant Home for the inspiration . Her blog is so cool, and 'yes' there are many great blogs out there but I love her sense of fun!
Here is my version of the Pleasant Home Halloween whirlygig runner:
As you can see I've chosen a Halloween palette of color; also most of this fabric came from RJR fabrics (2007), the prints are so cute. The designs remind me of candy wrappers.
I must send pictures to Jody at Pleasant Home, I wanted her to see the prairie points that I now feel compelled to add to all my sewing projects! I had the same problem a few months ago when I saw a sweet application of fabric 'yo-yos' on a handbag. I couldn't stop making yo-yos! It was fun.
This runner is very long, almost 84 inches, which is well...long. But that said I still have a stack of these whirly-gig blocks that I haven't used ; I foresee a whirly-gig quilt in my future I think. Once I started making them I had a hard time stopping - they are addicting.
