A Celebration table runner

With the 4th of July celebration upon us, I wanted to finish binding this table runner I had started last year.

No pattern. I started with the blocks and added the red, white and blue fabrics and just fooled around with them until I came up with a design I liked.

The runner is long, but I do like the final result. 

And here it is on my dining room table.


All ready for the July 4th celebration. 

Happy Quilting!

How come we can finish a project, all except the binding? It just sits there, in our sewing room, getting stuff stacked on it, while it waits? I had over 8 pin cushion thread catchers, just waiting for me to fill them with sand or walnut shells (which I had lots of) and to sew the last 2 seams closed. They waited over a year, as I kept passing them in my sewing room. When I finally got around to finishing them, it only took a few hours for all of them.

Great design! You should go pro. ;o) It's one of the cutest red, white and blue table runners I've ever seen.
