    I've been doing a lot of lap quilts, but this is the first table runner I've completed. It's pretty big, and fits perfectly on my kitchen table!

    oh WOW, thats looks great. This is your first tablerunner hope mine is just as pretty. I haven't even made one yet, thinking about using some of the boms to make a tablerunner. Love the way your colors are layed out, love it. Thanks for sharing.

    I love your tablerunner. Log cabin is one of my favorite blocks. Your work is beautiful.

    Yes, it's from the book "Mostly Table Runners" from Calico Printworks. Looked easy enough; turned out not to be quite as easy as I thought, but do-able.

    That looks just GORGOUS!!! You did a great job!

    I have been thinking of trying something simular as a runner for my dresser.. You have inspired me to move it closer to the top of the must do list!

    Oh how beautiful! I haven't tried making anything like that...you are making me interested in venturing out from anything square...Did I tell you that I can't sew? Quilts are the only thing I can do...LOL.

    I just love that table runner!

    That is so pretty. I like the way you left the edges and didn't use setting triangles. I made one that called for them, didn't know how to do it, so ended up just making it a rectangle and not set on point. I like yours better.

    My husband would love this - the log cabin is his favorite. It's very nice. I have yet to make something with this block - I love table runners and have made several - seems nice for a change in the dining room - or kitchen!! I want to make some as table scarves... for the bedroom!!

    Absolutely gorgeous! Think I might try to find that book with the pattern and so some of these for gifts. It's so unique. Thanks for sharing.

    Wow! That's beautiful and striking. Just jotted down the name of the book :) I've been looking for table runner patterns. I'm new to quilting and don't feel confident enough to just whip up something on my own. Beautiful job!
