A Small Finish!

I was able to finish a belated wedding gift for a co-worker and friend.  She loved it.  It was my June OMG, however I did not finish it until the 2nd of July.  That is what procrastination does for you/running out of time!

I created the pattern, a simple rail fence on the front, and then for the back I did strips, making it double sided.  I drew it out, and then went for it.  It was simple to put together, the biggest problem for me is finding time to do it as I feel like housework trumps sewing time after work and sometimes on the weekend.  Does anyone else ever feel that way?

The colors on this table runner turned out wonderfully, and I love the texture that the quilting added to the runner.  I was very happy to complete something off my long list of things to make.

I am linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts.  This project was #1 on my Quarter 3 Finish-A-Long list, number one of many.  Hopefully I will see actual movement on this list this quarter.  I can not wait to see what everyone else is working on.

  1. If you saw the state of my home you would have no doubt about whether housework got prioritized over quilting (or anything, really). :D

    Love the table runner - I've just started getting into them. A quick finish and a great way to play with new designs and ideas!

    On behalf of the global hosts, thank you for linking up to the Finish A Long!
