    I was going to make a tube table runner using about 3 or 4 squares. Well...I cut wrong & then after cutting again, I sew together the wrong strips. Decided I would make my own design of a table topper & use what I had, and use it to practice my FMQ. I don't think it turned out too badly.

    Thanks for the compliments. But, it was a mistake. It was supposed to be a runner. Since I couldn't seem to cut right yesterday I ended up with 2 squares that I could use and decide to use 1/2 of one square to make triangles on the edges of the main square. I didn't like sewing that inside corner binding very much.

    Looks pretty darn good to me. As many have said on here, no mistakes just artistic expression.
