    Well, I finally figured out how to do the spiral tablerunner, I think it was me but found the pattern hard to understand. Anyway, here it is (not my fav colours but it isn't for me. Re the quilting, do you think just a meander all over would work (that's about all I know how to do), I am not good at all with SID. Ideas please???

    Very nice! I think a meander will be beautiful, that is what I am going to do. I don't like SID very well.

    Really nice! SID is all I know at this time, kinda afraid of meandering at this point, but it would look great on your quilt.

    that's pretty. I have the pattern and the ruler, but haven't had the time to try it yet. I think a nice meander would look beautiful on yours. You're an inspiration!

    Very nice. Tell me what size is that? Some of them look larger. I'm sure it's just the pictures. But, would like to know how long it is. Thanks.

    Mine is 36 1/2 inches by 17 1/2 inches and yes, I think mine is bigger because I had only a 10 degree ruler(2.00 at a garage sale, )not a 9 degree like they ask for in the pattern (which was 39.95 at my LQS, yikes)-it does say you can use the 10 but it will be bigger). The colours didn't show very well, either, it is brighter & a bit darker. I don't think after figuring it out, that it was hard at all, I guess I was just having brain f...ts. Going to do a couple of more, soon.

    It looks really difficult, but it is actually quite easy.

    Thanks and Sadiemae is right, they are not half as hard as they look. (no matching points or seams). I have been quilting a little over 2 years now and though I have trouble learning from a pattern (I always need somebody to show me) I did figure it out myself. I must admit that pattern does make me look like I'm a real quilter! I think my biggest problem is picking 8 different fabrics, that always gets me!
