    WAY TOO LONG! Table Runner

    My sister was admiring a doll quilt of mine and said how nice it would look on her table. Well, her birthday was fast approaching, so I started and finished this in less than a day. What a lot of work. I was surprised at how long it was when I started sewing the blocks together.

    I was not happy with the pattern, as the directions were wrong twice and I had to cut more and rip out seams, but overall, it was fun. My sister LOVES it! She had it on her table right away and I know she will enjoy it for years.

    I made a queen-sized quilt using your pattern, Double Friendship Star (Quilters Cache) and even used purples and it turned out great. Lovely runner

    I really like it. Love the colors. I made a couple table runners that for Christmas that seem "way too long", too. I thought that I might use them as bed runners instead.
