    Shrinking a Table runner

    My LQS is having a Thimbleberries Club challenge. Take a Thimbleberries pattern and use Thimbleberries fabric, shrink the pattern 50%. Here is what I made, the original table runner is 20"x48" and mine is 10"x24". I even shrunk the prairie points.

    Thanks for looking!

    What a good challenge!
    Do they have you show both the original sized work, as well as the 50%?
