    That's really pretty Patsy, I love the way you've picked the pink and green out of your print and you've done such a good job of the piecing :thumbup:

    Very nice!! My next projects are going to be table runners with Christmas themes. That looks like a nice size runner. How long & wide did you make it? I may try something similar in some nice Christmas fabrics. :D

    I made a couple of runners last year & I also made it in a wider width. Mine were 16 x 72" as my mother in law wanted something longer for her table & she wasn't finding what she wanted in the pre-made variety. It was a fairly simple runner & would have been VERY, VERY simple except for the fact that after I'd turned it & sewn some red buttons on it I discovered a flaw (hole in fabric- 3" in from the finished edge) in the material & so then I had a creative challange. I made some bias tape in a contrasting color (red) to match the red buttons (I used those instead of quilting or tying). I sewed the bias (3 " in from the side) all the way around the runner & covered the flaw with the bias while actually making the runner look even better. I like it when that happens!! :D

    Oops...No I don't have a photo. It's the one that got away!!! LOL I usually take photos of my quilts but didn't think to take a photo of the table runner. Maybe when we visit on Thanksgiving I can take a photo. My MIL lives about 4 hours away.

    Jeannette.....I didn't use a pattern for this....I just made the three star blocks from a picture I saw....figured out the sizes on my own, added the borders and thats about it! I didn't even write down my sizes of squares and stuff as I went along or I would share it with you!

    I just measured the star blocks and they are 8 inches finished if that helps...

    Thanks for all the nice compliments!

    Country Quilter:
    Wow, it's so pretty. It looks like you did a wonderful job and your colors are terrific. I'm "into" table runners this year so I really appreciate your sharing yours with us. Is the pattern anywhere we can click to to get it?
