Hooray! 2010 will end with at least one finish!!

Wooohooo I did it!


Remember back here I said I was working on something with the fabrics from my SSCS swapper Pam? Remember how I said it was a Christmas table runner? Wanna see it?

There were nine 6 inch squares so even taking into account seam allowance it was always going to be a long old piece of amazing creative artistic endeavour. I had the the green and the backing red and purchased the gold script after falling in love with it when I sent some to Joy in the SSCS. Ignoring the possibly odd angle and slight curvature of some of those straight lines it really is something I am rather pleased with.

And the thing that I have discovered that has forever changed my quilty/sewy ability and plans? Yay for pullthrough finshing. How come no-one ever told me about the whole 'no need for binding if you sew it all together in the first place' thing? Oh how deliriously happy I have become!
