    table runner - more fmq practice -summer!

    I am making reversible table runners as a gift for my secret pal at church. Did this last year and gave her a new one every two months. Now I can't do that because ... then there'd be no secret! So this year I'm making them, but will give them as a set at our "reveal" party in December.

    The lady this is for lives in flip flops. She has them in every possible style and color. Except for the 1/3 yd of the flip flop fabric all other fabrics are from my stash.

    I have a tiny toe over the FMQ line - this one made me very happy! Don't have a clue what I'm doing, but I sure am having fun. The flowers in the center may be too busy, but I enjoyed making them. Loved doing the loop-de-loops in the border.

    Those of you who are bitten by the FMQ bug, but are intimidated by it - try it! You'll like it! (starting with small projects does it for me.)

    What a loving gift.

    I agree about FMQ. I was seriously intimidated until I tried it. My guild has a frequent event with our LA machine. Everyone gets to play with FMQ on a guild set up. I am too disabled to use the guild machine, but I have lots of fun doing FMQ on my own. It's mainly a matter of relaxing and just doing it.

    That is so very cute. I'll bet if there are any teenagers in the house they would have a great time looking at all the flip flops.

    Very nice. She will love it. The flip flop material is fun and cute and the yellow and grey flowers is formal and elegant. Great choice for a double sided table runner.

    I'm sure no one is going to look at that and think, That lady has no idea what she's doing... Sure looks good to me, and it will make a fantastic gift. I might be looking for a new church...
