A Stitch in Time.....

A stitch in time meant I managed to finish the table runner my pal asked me to make in time for her to use on the table for christmas day.  I was up against a tight deadline so decided to go with straight square patchwork pieced squares, 'stitched in the ditch' for the quilting element.  Here's a pic of it before I sent it off to my pal (she was delighted with it thankfully !).



I did promise/threaten to share pics of the table runner I made for my own christmas table once it was fully completed, so here it is

 
This close up shot shows the details of the 'Disappearing Nine Patch' design I used more clearly
 
 
and here's a shot of the backing/binding fabric
 
 
 

Thanks for dropping by to check today's projects, hope you enjoyed your visit.

Wynneth you are too clever! You are deffinitely getting a lot of use from your sewing machine. These table runners look fantastic, so fantastic in fact that I now want to make one too. Now there's a project for the new year!
