Done!


Literally with only minutes to spare before we needed to leave the house, I machine stitched the binding down.

And it was done!

This was definitely too much of a time cruncher for me.

When you are using a pattern that you have used for years with NO problems, you just don't take into account the what ifs! And this time my what ifs turned into roadblocks.

But I was so glad to get this table runner finished and into the hands of the recipient.

Happy Quilting!

I love stars and the color red so you know I'm really loving this table runner. Done is done, no matter how last minute the finish was!

It turned out beautifully!!! I know what you mean about these nailbiter projects that you are finishing at the last minute. I have a feeling that's how my Easter sewing is going to be this year.
I really love this table runner.

Despite the disorder with the red fabric, and everything worked well worth the end result. It was beautiful. Congratulations.

Down to the wire is still a finish. Congratuations. And, better to catch "before" than "after."

What a beautiful table runner! You did a lovely job even under the gun! Scary about the fabric that was bleeding but you caught it in time! Good job!

It is beautiful. What a good thing you thought about the red colour running, before you finished it though. I bet the recipient was over the moon with it.
