A bit of blessed sunshine today and I can show you the table runner I made from the oops squares left over from the girls quilts. What? You've never heard of oops squares? :>) Remember, I am a pretty good seamstress but this was my first time making quilt squares. Real pieced quilt squares. So I had a few that weren't square at all. I was able to salvage them by cutting them down in size and by not expecting perfection. I let myself off that hook. And I love the runner. It is bright and cheerful even if it isn't in the colors I usually sew with. Can you believe there is no red? That's next on my project list, a quilt and maybe a runner that better matches my dining room.
I sent the girls quilts out to the quilter Saturday, I am so excited to get them finished and in their hands. It should be 3-4 weeks and I can't wait to get them back so I can bind them. It has been a long process, and the girls have been so patient! The runner gives them an idea of what their quilts will look like:>)Can you see the little bit of green outside? It is supposed to be in the 40's this weekend (oh happy day!) I suppose winter will return eventually but these little warm ups and sunshine sure make it easier to endure.
