    I LOVE THEM wow those two are bright for sure! I love the charm quilted runner I see them all the time and think how much they would be easy on the eye, everything works so well together and then of course well Krystyna look into my runner.. look into my runner... you will see circles, amongst lines.. look into my runner.. ah.. phew pulled away just in time! that is a fun happy summer runner for sure. Both of those are not for the gloomy or depressed. I love happy stuff.

    Quiltermomma, that triangle one had my name all over it when you first posted it. I could easily use those colors all year round they match my couch perfectly. Maybe your partner hates hers too and you want to send them here also?

    Oh Elisabrat I love quitermomma's triangle mat. Can't wait to display it on my new camper's table. Feel bad I'm not finished with hers yet. I had emergency surgery on Saturday, detached retina. Quiltermomma has been very supportive of me and I will keep slowly working on hers.

    I mailed mine... Now I am so mad at myself, I did not take a full picture, ok if I did I sure can't find it! I found the little peek picture, but no big picture of the whole thing! Dang So Berryberry can you please take a picture for me! I also forgot the label, well I was going to make one then remembered that I didn't... I am not a good label maker. I sent 3 quilts home this week and only one had a label! But two of them were for graduation gifts and well I am not sure if they might trade them...

    OK I put in a 14 hour day today so I am going to bed! OK maybe I will finish this block first! I am going to Seattle next week so have to get my sewing plate clean... I have two more projects to finish, one is just binding, I do that by hand while I visit with my Mom, the other is replace zippers, the hardest part of Alterations, ok not hard but yuckiest so I always do it last!

    Good night ladies~
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Another HOT day 90's. I sure do not do well on these days. Clinic today then melting this afternoon. Wonderful! lucky for us we have air conditioning AND we don't pay utilities. You can guess who is running air today Steve is still limping so he is not able to still do much around here. only 15 days til we are packed and outta here. I had a small melt down yesterday and was so worried we wont find a place to live with our cats that maybe we should stay here in CA where you can find rentals with pets allowed. I am serious it really upset me. sigh. My cats have never sprayed or missed a litter box. sheesh. I also just found out we need to vaccinate/new rabies before we go so they are all correct with documents when you enter the other states. I didnt know that. why I dont know. they are not due til July but guess its just another expense to add. joy. indoor cats they are never exposed to anything but ME.

    MB that was the part I hated on doing alterations too! and letting out darts and pleats. Lady gains 20 lbs., has had the dress for years and thinks those stitching lines are not going to still show. Frustrating to say the least.
    Brat just have your vet papers with you to show the new vet when they are due. Who on earth is going to stop you and ask for those papers? If they are current on shots, they are current. You won't go through customs anywhere. Highway Patrol is just going to issue a ticket if you drive to fast, don't think you have to worry about that with Steve behind the wheel. Think your Californians are trying to scare you, like they told you Wyoming getting 60 below all winter and blowing dust all summer. All a bunch of bull. Quit fretting please, remember the word "Believe"
    On another note I have not heard from my partner. Her little runner is just hanging here waiting to be sent.

    I chose a pattern, then I found a different pattern, then I bought material, cut material out, chose a different pattern, cutting out more material . . . which way does the heat treated batting (I don't know the real name of it) go . . . treated part up or down? Can anyone tell I've never done one of these before?

    ArizonaKAT, when I use the heat treated bat, I believe it is on both sides the sticky stuff. Be sure to watch for that. Otherwise, I always put it so the sticky side was to the backing so there were no tucks on the back and then placed the top on with about two inches on all four sides so if I had any lengthening issues, I would not go over. Hope that helps.

    Thank you everyone for the compliments. I have to put the label on the runner for Terriann and then finish binding on the dbl wed ring with label. No worries partners, I am glad I am getting them done before the deadline so all I have to do is mail them out to you. Whew, feels good to have them find a home.

    I must say, those bright runners look like so much fun to have in the house. But alas, in my house they would not go over real well with DH. He is not a brights person like me. I am positive that my runners are going to be so pretty.

    Wow such beautiful table runners! Sorry I have been MIA, the quilt drive has taken on a life of its own, I am meeting some friends tomorrow for them to take some quilts to a family on her son's baseball team, and to another friend that is taking them to a family at her church. Next week I am hoping to team up with a girl and she is going to hand out crocheted lovies and I am going to hand out quilts to the kids. I am slowly working on my table runner, thankfully I have a completely understanding partner, AZKAT.

    I'm laughing at the "completely understanding" part of your post. I'm so very grateful that "I" have the extra time to work on your table runner. If you read my previously post, I've changed my mind . . . and material several times already. This Saturday is it. GD is away for the day and I have the entire day to sew. I even took my featherweight out of the garage and set it up in the pantry (the only place I had space) so I could work in the air conditioning.

    Stayed home from work today, too hard to read numbers on the computer. Finished piecing and quilting Qmomma's runner, need to sew on the binding and see if I can see to sew the binding down by hand. Hubby asked why I haven't made one for our table VBG.

    Hurray, I mailed off MamaHausers Table Topper (square so not a runner) so she should have it by Saturday. Just as an aside, you all might check out my giveaway. It is halfway over but wanted to give you a heads up. :-)

    Just a fun little RAOK to pay back members for helping make this the best place!

    oh yeah

    So many many runners getting worked on. I worry so much is everyone going to finish will there be sad people at the end of the swap??? I think there are about 18 who NEVER post. arg pirates I think pretty sure I asked everyone to post a little bit at least. not a huge request. With moving I worry about losing track here so help me remember ok? my short term memory is not what it used to be.

    Sandy what a cute hankie! I collect the vintage ones with holiday motifs. Gosh I love those. hearts, shamrocks, oh oh Christmas.. would love to get enough together to make a monthly holiday quilt with them wouldnt that be way too cute? something about that time in the world where women were feminine, men were manly, family time was so the norm, people ate at the table together.. its romantic to me in a dorky way. I loved my holidays growing up My mom was a grumpy sort but she always had the house decorated for the seasons.. and the 50's stuff.. it stuck in my good thoughts bucket! lol..

    I promise I am still alive. Haven't gotten on the board all week! DH and I ventered off to Kentucky Downs last night for an early anniversary date with the slot machines. We broke even. The machine I was on was a winner but it didn't start warming up until 10 minutes before close. If we had more time I know it would have hit jackpot. Oh, well!

    I am on a 4 day weekend from work. We thought we were going to be able to slip off for the weekend, but DH's work just wouldn't allow it. They are hosting Bonaroo starting this weekend through next week and he is on call. I have planned to work in the sewing corner, do some spring cleaning, lounging on the patio. Hope it doesn't rain.

    Krystyna, I can't wait to get that beautiful table runner on my kitchen table. It is beautiful!! I am still quilting yours. Hope to be finished by the first of next week.

    I am happy to hear your doing well ladies! wow I know you would have won if you had a bit more time on that machine (wink wink)..

    I love Krystyna's pattern totally different than any I have seen so far.

    question of the week: Do we do a wall hanging WELCOME sign or another runner swap or a partners choice of the two swap? I am thinking the last one is a nice option in case someone has so many runners they want a welcome sign or vice versa.. what say you?

    Glad to hear from you! I was almost ready to interpret your silence and horror! What's a Bonoroo?

    Bonaroo is Tennessee's version of Woodstock. There is variety of artist from Hip Hop, Country, Blues and even Folk music. I have never been, don't have a desire to go either. It is outside, no shelters set up other than what you bring like a tent, and its crowded. Lasts all week long.

I'm halfway through with yours been busy these last few weeks and will get back to it on Monday. Will try to have it out to you by next weekend. Will take picture later and post.

    Bonaroo, sounds fabulous ........ if I was younger. Just like Sturgis use to be, aaaah those memories, wild and free and fancy free. Now, would have one H of a time walking 2 blocks!! Have to leave it all for the younger generation.

    I guess it is "if you like that sort of thing" as my dear Granddaddy would have said. This week Nashville hosted CMA Fest which used to be called Fan Fair. I have never been to it either, but the city and surrounding counties have been a buzz. So, two weeks in a row just seems too much for the fun!

    I received my beautiful picnic runner from Marybeth. Oh, it's just perfect. I'll take pictures as soon as I can get to a picnic table. It's a bit soggy here right now.
