    Does colors work

    I am making another table runner. I am trying my best to get them all to line up. Block on right is much better than left. Don't think I can get worse. I have one more block to make than I can join it all together. Will be making several.

    Hope the colors work well with each other.

    I love your colours- the way the main colour with the ants on is quite intricate and the other red and the black complement it too!

Size:  1.88 MBI still have to the boarder. Maybe one day I can get everything straight. But it should come over time.

    All finished. The next one I will quilt with red thread rather black. As you can see I can sew straight at all. At least with red it might hide it better. I am going make some with with watermelon. i need about 10 for camping trip.

    What a cool runner. See how you are improving! Every time you sew, a little more better! Nice work.

    Have you tried the method where you put straight pins at your seams to hold that intersection after lining the seams up - just a idea
