January Snowman Table Runner Finished
Success! We were able to complete the January Snowman table runner. In my last update on the January table runner, before Christmas, I shared that we shortened the length of the runner. In doing so, we neglected to adjust the outside border blocks. Oops!
In our first assembly step, Sue cut the background blocks and sashing strips for me to piece together. I did so, and next started appliquéing the wonky border blocks with small pieces of multicolored fabric. Once that was complete, it was time to start appliquéing each snowman:
The final assembly step involved sewing the wonky border blocks together. That is when our dilemma was discovered. I had way too many wonkies because we eliminated one snowman from the original pattern. We added a smaller plain block to each long side. It probably wouldn’t be noticed at all but I decided to add a few appliqued stars.
Completed Snowman Table Runner
Here is our finished table runner. I elected to quilt this with a quick straight stitch using my walking foot. In the interest of getting this complete near the beginning of January, I thought that would be the quickest.
This was a selection by the Runner Aways Club. I haven’t heard if the other two members have completed their snowmen or not, but I am hoping this will encourage them!
This is how I filled the small gap piece of black fabric that we added to make the wonky border fit. Just a little row of stars using one of the special stitches on my sewing machine.
Our first finish for 2018! ~smile~
