Elm Creek Tablerunner

csackettJuly 9, 2007

I love this pattern, but it too big for my table. I wasn't happy with my quilting. The quiling in the darker beige squares matches the quilting pattern around the edge.

I should have done something different.

That's really pretty, Carolyn! Where do you get your patterns? I'm thinking you have a good idea for practicing quilting and I might just have to copy you! @:)

The pattern is a freebie on the internet. I have it printed and could scan it for you. I don't remember where it came from.

Very nice. Sorry it is too big for your table maybe it will fit mine. :) Just teasing!
Have you read the Elm Creek novels?

Sharon, the pattern came from the www.eeschenck.com website. It's in the free patterns.
Sally, I have read all the novels and love them. I wish I could figure out how to read a book and sew. I guess I could do audio tapes.

I love all the projects you have done and I fail to see the errors you speak of. We are our own worst critic. You are doing very well and doing small projects is a great way to learn and try new thing. Good job.

Reduce the pattern and make it the size you like.

I too think you did a beautiful job. It's a shame it's too large for your table. Could you put it across the back of your couch? Maybe you need a new table to fit the table runner. (I know ha ha ha)

I think it's very pretty.What size is your table? I ask that because it doesn't look very big to me,then again it's hard to tell on a monitor.

I guess if it's too big for your table then it's probably also too big for your coffee table,isn't it??
