    WAY TOO LONG! Table Runner

    My sister was admiring a doll quilt of mine and said how nice it would look on her table. Well, her birthday was fast approaching, so I started and finished this in less than a day. What a lot of work. I was surprised at how long it was when I started sewing the blocks together.

    I was not happy with the pattern, as the directions were wrong twice and I had to cut more and rip out seams, but overall, it was fun. My sister LOVES it! She had it on her table right away and I know she will enjoy it for years.

    I made a queen-sized quilt using your pattern, Double Friendship Star (Quilters Cache) and even used purples and it turned out great. Lovely runner

    I really like it. Love the colors. I made a couple table runners that for Christmas that seem "way too long", too. I thought that I might use them as bed runners instead.

    I think it looks great! It hangs over the edge just about the same as the tablecloth and looks like it was supposed to be that way. Love the colors and design.
