Sew Cute Tuesday, November 3

FRUITS AND VEGGIES

On the giveaway table at our quilt group I found these strips of fruits and veggies fabric, already cut about 8 inches by WOF.  I cut the harvest gold strips to finish at 1.5 inches.  My first idea was a tablecloth, but it would have to be bigger.  So why not two table runners?  

 

I plan to do a 2-inch gold border, but they will be too wide for table runners, I think.  As pictured, they are 19 inches.  Should I cut them narrower?  I look at pics of table runner patterns and they vary in width.  I’m thinking of cutting off about 3 or 4 inches from each.
  I plan to give one as a thank you to the dear person who finished hand quilting this Amish style quilt I could not finish for my son before he died in April. Now I love having it on my bed and snuggling under it.  This photo was taken of us when she returned it to me at our meeting.

I link up with RSC15 at superscrappy.blogspot.com and Sew Cute Tuesday at blossomheartquilts.com.  Please visit and see what folks are doing.

  1. Wonderful quilt. It looks warm and comforting. Quilting friends are the best.
    Fruit and Veggies strips were perfect prints for table runners. True that they do come in all sizes.
    You have a beautiful smile, dear.

  2. that is a good find from the giveaway tale, what about making one runner and some table mats and iF you narrow the runner maybe some mug rugs with the bit you cut off, would not like to think you are being idle so thought this plan up for you!! Your son`s quilt looks super and so glad you are snuggling under it
