I think I'm getting it...and then I find I need MORE experience, so I continue to try!
Missouri Star Quilt Co. has a video tutorial for a jelly roll that makes a bunch of table toppers/runners. The 'tree' table runner is the first I've completed, but there are 3 more in the works.
The "card trick" or New Orleans card trike table topper is my fourth. This is the first time I've put on binding and I'm happy with my effort. There is an error (of course) that I discovered when I was piecing the parts together.
Thanks for looking!
